Produce Faster, Harder, Stronger 

Unleash the true power of Ableton with F9 Venus processing and instruments racks for Live V11.2 onwards ( Standard or Suite ) 

Our original F9 racks release  has become a high watermark for this indie company, selling more units than any other F9 product to date. This groundbreaking release garnered immense acclaim from professional producers, sound engineers, and artists across the world. 

Live 11 completely changed the game by elevating Ableton's macro system with a much-requested 16 macros, This update also introduced macro variation storage slots, which function similar to presets, offering an intuitive way to save and recall configurations. Plus, with the newly added capability for controlled randomisations, this software takes the much-loved Ableton rack system to brand new heights, and F9 Venus racks takes full advantage of all this power. 

But this is only part of the story. The native inclusion of LFOs, volume-triggered envelopes and user-defined shaper curves in both Standard and Suite editions opened up an entirely new world of processing possibilities that were previously only available in 3rd party plugins. 

Inside F9 Venus racks you will not only find our legendary multi-layered creative processes but dynamically triggered EQs, Lo-fi Wow and Flutter effect, sidechaining racks, trance gates and much more. 

"For me, the worth of any production tool is nearly always measured by how often I  return to it. Having worked so closely and intensely on this release for months, I was overjoyed to see just how damn useful and powerful these racks are "
