Ages ago I recorded all kinds of noises that can be produced with a Coke bottle. The most interesting sounds are now available in a Drum Rack as a free Live Pack. The Coke Live Pack is made in and for Ableton Live 9.
No, we're not going back to the stone age. Yet, the "Rock 'n' Stone" Live Pack is based on various sounds of rocks and stones. It contains one fully macro-mapped Drum Rack, the pads filled with instances of Impulse. Made in and for Ableton Live 9.
It's winter here and cold and when I came across the samples of a matchbox and matches in my library of field recordings, I thought of "The Little Match Girl" by Hans Christian Andersen. This is why this new Live Pack is based on all kinds of sounds a matchbox and matches can make. It contains one fully macro mapped Drum Rack with enclosed instances of Impulse. Made in and for Ableton Live 9.
Sonic Bloom is now online for two years. Time to celebrate it with a befitting free Live Pack, methinks. So this Live Pack is based on the sound of fireworks. One Drum Rack, one Instrument Rack made from a howler, both fully macro-mapped. Made in and for Ableton Live 9.
Steps on a wooden floor, on gravel, treading into a puddle, shoe scraping, rubber soles squeaking on linoleum... those are the sounds that make up the latest Live Pack called "On Your Feet". One Drum Rack, one synth Instrument Rack made from squeaky sneakers, both fully macro-mapped. Made in and for Ableton Live 9.
Who says a dumpster is only good for holding rubbish (or trash)? It's got a great sound when being hit, struck or kicked. I've made a Live Pack containing a fully macro mapped Drum Rack with Impulse instances with those exact sounds. Perfect for a big and heavy drum sound.
For me, actually making the beats I heard in my head was the hardest part when I got started with producing. Liquid Rhythm, a beat generator made by WaveDNA, makes building beats and adding variations and breaks very simple.
It's winter here in Berlin and quite dark, grey and grim. The perfect time to create a winter themed Live Pack. "Rub-A-Dub/SnowStep" contains two fully macro mapped Drum Racks, one made with sounds of hands rubbed together to keep them warm and one of recorded steps in the snow.
