Our favorite music website of record, Resident Advisor, routinely reviews tech of all stripes.

After clicking around for the last few weeks, they’ve come to the conclusion that the landmark Ableton 10 deserves a 4.4 / 5. As they say:

So while the headlines surrounding the update announcement centred on a range of new devices, the decidedly less sexy truth is that removing barriers to creativity requires a ream of small workflow improvements.
