Free Ableton Live instruments for contemporary producers

FOUNDATION is an ever-growing collection of sampled and synth instruments ranging from keys and strings to synths and percussion.

Imagine having a library of expertly crafted and ready-to-use instruments that allow you to focus on your ideas instead of tweaking knobs and stacking plugins.

There are plenty of free Ableton packs out there, but for the most part they're quite random and experimental. Not FOUNDATION. Instead, we make modern and usable instruments that sound great out of the box.

FOUNDATION instruments are fully compatible with the latest version of Ableton Live (Suite or Standard) and don't require any 3rd party plugins.

By using only Ableton Live instruments and effects we were able to build great-sounding lightweight instrument racks that load instantly, are extremely stable and smooth, and have low CPU usage.

The best part? It's completely free!




A 2GB collection of 25 multi-sampled piano / synth racks specifically designed for contemporary music production.

Unlike other piano libraries that are designed for more "classic" arrangements and require lots of processing to fit today's Pop and Dance music, FOUNDATION: KEYS offers an expertly curated selection of ready to use piano racks that allow you to focus on the music and keep the creative flow.

Combining multi-samples from 4 different acoustic pianos, FM synth, and advanced processing, these racks provide you with a wide palette of piano and synth sounds for all kinds of modern music.
