*Ableton Live Suite 11 Required*
A total of 19 Instrument Racks, 7 Operator based, 10 Collision based and 2 Shaker Loops.
These racks are starting points or building blocks. They are not "production ready" drums. They are dry and benefit from the use of effects and mixing. I like taking an active role in crafting my percussion sounds, but not always to the extent of modeling a new snare every time. That's torture. I made these to be a middle-ground, just the controls you need to design a variety of drum sounds quickly. You can use them as kits but I think they often work best as individual percussion instruments to be used alongside your other percussion samples and instruments. A few bonus details... There is a Hybrid reverb set up as a send if you open up the rack. The file names are quick to read and easily searchable in Live's browser. The macros maintain a consistency across the devices and work well with a Push or other 8 knob MIDI controller. It is also very fun to use the random macro feature to find strange percussion sounds at the click of a button.
A Live Pack .alp file with the instrument racks will be included in the download of this "album". A detailed video of every rack can be found here:
