It's the end of the year, just after Christmas and this is also post numero 500 on Sonic Bloom. Since a lot of you seem to really love my skins, I've got some more for you. For free as usual. They're representing hope for me. That it'll be less dark soon and I'll have enough time to produce during the day. Here's to 500 further posts and more to come.
In a previous tutorial I've shown you how you can map clip parameters in Ableton Live's Session View that will be active for any selected clip. In this new video I explain two ways how to preserve these parameter changes as it's not possible to simply record automation.
LK, an iOS and Android controller app for Ableton Live, already came out in early March. Formerly known as LIVKONTROL by Imaginando, LK has gotten a complete overhaul. With version 1.0.4 out now, it has gotten another bunch of improvements and a brand new feature: USB wired connection for both iOS and Android devices. A fail safe for when there are wi-fi interferences, a lot of live performers will appreciate.
It's spring, so high time for some fresh new looks. Yes, this means, there are five new skins for Ableton Live. No greys this time around, but mostly discreet, retro colours. The skins are optimised for Live 9, but will work in previous versions as well.
Christian Kleine, a.k.a. Max for Cats, has been busy. After the Max for Live modular synth OSCiLLOT, he's already finished two unique and creative delays now out on Sonic Bloom. Skram Delay and Stochastic Delay both take a fresh approach on time shifting of an audio signal, one of the most powerful and effective sound treatments ever invented.
If you're up for some new skins for Ableton Live, I've got 5 new ones you might like. They're all mid to dark, often greys or off-greys with bits of colour. The skins are optimised for Live 9, but will work in previous versions as well.
New Ableton Live skins anyone? These five new skins are all based on various neutral dark greys, each one with sprinkles of colour. My current favourite of them is 'turquoise'. The skins are optimised for Live 9, but will work in previous versions as well.
The different types of quantization, and what is used how and where, can be a little confusing at first in Ableton Live. This tutorial explains the differences between the Global quantization, the Clip and the Record Quantization.
There are always situations where you'd want to route the audio from another software, such as YouTube, into Ableton Live. This tutorial explains how you can achieve this on a Mac.
Generally, the freebies on Sonic Bloom are made by me. This time though I've got a great free Live Pack from Animus Invidious a.k.a. PerforModule for you. "eVokalization" contains one melodic multi-synth Instrument Rack and one beatbox Drum Rack made out of the musician eVokal's processed voice. The pack also includes a selection of free-to-use beatbox loops created by eVokal off-the-cuff.
