Strata Is A Next-Generation Control System For Ableton Live

Envision Sound Technologies has introduced Strata, a next-generation control system for Ableton Live 9 & 10. Envision Sound calls Strata a control system, as opposed to a MIDI controller, because it is comprised of two parts: the purpose-designed MIDI controller, and the control surface script which handles MIDI data between the controller and Live- which is where the magic happens.

Features

  • No on-board display, but auto-changing of Live’s views to match controls in use, plus selected parameter control along with 8 macro controls.
