On October 19th in 2012 I released the first tutorial on Sonic Bloom. Since then, the blog has amassed almost 750 posts each in English and German and the website has become the biggest independent site on all things Ableton Live, Push and Max for Live. What a ride it has been. To celebrate the 8th birthday and its continuance, everything in the Sonic Bloom shop is now 25% off until October 25th at midnight CET with the discount code sb8years that you can enter in the checkout.
I'm also running a raffle from now until Thursday (Oct 22) at midnight CET, in which you can win one of eight bundles of all the packs available in the Sonic Bloom shop. This includes the Max for Cats Complete Collection, which contains all the Max for Live Packs by Max for Cats currently available on Sonic Bloom - 11 Packs, 19 amazing Max for Live MIDI instruments as well as MIDI and audio effects. It requires Ableton Live 10 with Max for Live. House Operator Vol. 1 - containing over 80 old school house-y Operator presets - requires Ableton Live 9.7 with Operator, and Array Mbira - the acoustic grand thumb piano I own sampled - requires Ableton Live 9.7 Intro or up.
