LIVE RACKS : Parallel Suite
Mix Faster, Better, Harder, Stronger With F9 Racks
Just Awarded 9/10 in Music Tech Magazine
Modern production and mixing is all about pushing things to the edge and controlled distortion. Parallel processing offers a near-perfect method to reach the sounds of the professionals as it often leaves the original source untouched whilst adding enormous weight, power, and front.
Works with Ableton 9, 10 and 11 ( Standard or Suite )

Ableton live offers it’s users a unique approach to effect building using the rack system and F9’s founder James Wiltshire is now well known as parallel processing evangelist & guru from his various tutorial videos for software house, educational facilities, and magazines. Having mixed literally hundreds of records including multiple international number 1’s James has developed parallel techniques that have transferred Ableton perfectly and we believe are second to none.
We've also tried to keep as many of the macro names descriptive and emotive rather than technical wherever possible
This exceptional suite of tools is a carefully distilled and hand-tuned set of tools from James’ personal collection designed to achieve pro-level results without a single 3rd party plugin. Many Swiss army knife tools exist in the collection and well as focused and job-specific racks as well as treats such as the instant classic - Parallel Equaliser.
F9 is as much about education as the sound and we’ve included all the building blocks from this modular collection so you can tear down the devices in a much simpler form learn how to build your own parallel channels with Macro controls
