This Live Pack is based on the sound of a harmonica. Three fully macro-mapped Instrument Racks, one great for bass, one synth-sounding and the other one for arpeggiated bell-like sounds. Made in and for Ableton Live 9.
Ho ho ho and a merry Christmas to all of you! While others might give you a Live Pack based on bells, I'll give you the "Tuned Boing Drum" Live Pack (I've already done bells in May). It's quite the merry sound though.
As promised, new week - new Fairlight CMI Live Pack. This second one contains 63 Simpler presets full of guitar and bass sounds from an original Fairlight CMI IIx compiled in four Live Sets for Live 9.
I scoured the interwebz for some great free Ableton Live Packs as you never seem to get enough of those. This time I'm focusing on two big ones that give you plenty of sounds to work with.
Some years ago I got to play the Skinstrument II that uses our skin's resistance to generate sound whenever the circuit is closed by touching the instrument and each other. Back then I also recorded it and now created a Live Pack named "Skinned Synth" with it that is great for mean sawtooth-like bass, synth chords as well as screaming high melodies.
It's time for another Live Pack to be left out into the world. The 'Flageolet Live Pack' contains four Instrument Racks based on me playing a flageolet tone on my trusted old classical guitar. They're all macro mapped, work in Live 8 as well as 9. Flageolet sounds have both a bell like and percussive quality making them great for patterns, pling plong sounds, bass lines and percussive elements.
Here's another Live Pack I've created. It contains three Instrument Racks based on a kalimba sample. They're all macro mapped, work in Live 8 as well as 9 and can be used for anything from pling plong melodies to mean bass lines.
To celebrate the release of Live 9, I've created a Live Pack for you. Aptly named 'On the Rocks', it contains three instrument racks with field recordings, the sound of a glass harp (bass, synth) and the clink of ice in the glass (sound effects). So let's raise the glasses and then make some music.
This is video 3 out of 4 in my Ableton Live 9 Beta series which shows how to use the different Convert Audio to MIDI features in a creative way to start a song or track. This one is about the new 'Convert Melody to MIDI' function and how you can turn a sung melody into a bass line.
