Free Bodhrán Ableton Live Pack (No. 7)

I'm back with another free Live Pack for you. This one features bodhrán, an Irish drum that I played and sampled. The Live Pack contains a Drum Rack with different hits, strikes with the beater and brushes as well as an Instrument Rack with a tuned bodhrán strike. As usual, both are macro mapped and work in Live 8 and 9.

Listen to the demo:

If clicking it to download results in a text-file, simply right-click and choose 'Save Link as...'. To install, just double-click the alp-file and choose the installation path when prompted by Live.

      Right-click and ‘Save As…’ as described in the post should work. ;)

      I’m not sure if I’d limited the scenes. If I did, it’d work in Intro as well. The downloads are not restricted by country and are available worldwide.

    Thanks for the reply.

    When I click on your download section. I am brought to a window where a blue button is labelled :…..”I want this but..
    “Before I can click on it , a red message appears saying “this is not available your location”

    I am limited to 8 scenes and 16 tracks in Live 10 Intro – I think

      I’ve sent you an email so we can better figure out why this isn’t working for you.
