Sound design is the reason I got into electronic music. At an early age I fell in love with recordings by the Beatles that turned non-instruments into musical sounds (Like the bubbles in "Octopus's Garden"). So for me, this is a really special Free Ableton Live Pack I'm sharing with you today.
About a month ago, I released a Pack of percussion sounds made from samples from the factory of distinguished makers of MIDI controllers, Livid Instruments. I took the samples they sent me and created sounds you can use to add unique and interesting rhythms to your music. Check it out if you haven't downloaded it yet. This time, I've made melodic instruments from more of those samples.
Five Free Ableton Live Instrument Rack Presets!
Today I've got a real treat! Five Ableton Live instrument racks made from the sounds of Livid's drills, band saws, tape, sheet metal, and a mysterious machine called "Lil Blue." They are pitched out across the keyboard and are great for melodies, transitional passages, and strange effects and textures.
As always, I've added a bunch of Macro controls that will let you easily manipulate the most important parameters so you can sculpt the sound to fit perfectly in your music. So click on the download button below, enjoy, and share any music you make with any of my sounds here!
Help Livid Fight ALS
