Beat Lab Instant Afro
We can find influences of Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms in all styles of music. The main rhythm that inspired other cultures all over the world was the clave rhythm.
Interestingly enough, the African rhythms they were inspired by came back to Africa. Today, we can hear the clave rhythm in modern African pop music, Dancehall, Reggaeton, and even dance music like big room house and tribal.

Beat Lab Drum Buss Key Follower
The new Drumbuss Audio Effect in Live 10 is an efficient powerhouse of processing. It has a built-in compressor, clipper, saturation, distortion and Transient shaping.
Ableton added to that their secret sauce in a low resonator that can take create some enormous 808-ish bass out of any audio with some low-end content.
The best part about it is that you can tune the resonating bass note using the Freq knob.
