Ableton Live Workflow Tips Part 8 – Saving Presets

Let’s say you like certain device presets a lot, but you need to tweak certain parameters to get the desired result. To save you valuable time, you can save your own presets.

  1. Once you’ve modified a preset to your liking, simply click the Save Preset button (floppy disk icon) in the top right of the device or device rack. This adds the preset to the device presets in the Device Browser of the Live Library.
    Save Preset
  2. Type in a name for it and hit Return to save.

Or if you want to save presets into your chosen location and not the Library, e.g. the current Live Project or in dedicated folder, you can do the following:

  1. Open File Browser 1, 2 or 3 and navigate to the desired location.
  2. Now simply click the title bar of the device, drag and drop it into the respective Browser location.
  3. Type in a name and hit Return.
    Name your own preset

This works for all Live devices, be it instruments, audio or MIDI effects or any type of rack.

This tutorial is valid for Live 8 to 11.

  1. Hallo,

    ich hab das jetzt schon xmal mit meiner Audio Unit – Sylenth probiert. Ich bestimme die Parameter mit Configure, dann sehe ich sie in Push. Und speicher das Ganze wie hier beschrieben. Wenn ich dann das Preset wieder öffne ist aber alles weg. Keine Parameter sind bestimmt! Es lässt sich nicht speichern…any ideas?

    cheers felix
