Greetings boys and girls, this week I have part one of a two part series on creating glitchy music. As fun as it is to create things, there's a whole other sense of satisfaction in destroying them. For your downloading pleasure, I've constructed three different Ableton Live Effect Racks that are designed to mutilate, mangle, destroy, and crush your tracks up. I built up groups of effects that will take your sounds and twist them into oblivion so that you wind up with something totally new and down right nasty. These are great for individual tracks or entire mixes, experiment with them and take the music you have worked so hard to create and destroy it to your hearts content! Follow the destruction in the video below. Next week in part two, we will take these very racks and go through the steps to take just about any sound and mangle it into a large group of glitchy noises that can then be reused again and again.
Free Download: Super Glitch Machine 1 Free Ableton Live Pack #23
The Casio VL-1 is a classic toy synthesizer. Super LoFi and very charming. Each sound (guitar, flute, fantasy, piano, violin, ADSR) has been sampled and rendered into an Ableton Live Instrument Rack. Tasteful effects have been added so that you can morph each sound into something new. A must have!
*Requires Live 8 and higher
RapMan Rack/Sample Pack
This collection of Ableton Instrument Racks was created with the Casio RapMan. If you need the sound of a toy keyboard in your productions, this will do the trick. Created in the days when Rap music was considered a fad, the Casio RapMan has lots of fun sounds for your exploration. Lofi and somewhat nostalgic, this pack will remind you of the days sitting on the shag carpet experimenting with music for the first time.
*Requires Live 8 or higher
