Curated, processed kits for Live.
We've assembled some 17 Drum Racks for Ableton Live from the one shots in this pack to demonstrate their versatile potential for creative drum kits. We have used three distinct approaches: one traditional and deterministic (static racks), one aggressive and maximalist (hottest tubes), and the other organic and chaotic (analogulated racks).
Hottest tubes - The hottest tubes series disects and re-animates the Analog Drums samples in a lab powered by guitar pedals. The sounds these racks produce is almost unrecognizaeble from the input samples. So much of the interesting harmonic detail is too quiet to be heard in normal conditions - these chains crunch, compress, and distort to squeeze out every little drop. Burnt ends offers a representative sample:
Static racks - These racks use the racks in a fairly straightforward way, providing a cohesive sounding drum kit with pre-mapped macros that provide global control over sample parameters, sends, and effects. Stoop clove demonstrates:
Loops on Loops on Loops
Analog Drums contains 45 loops for instant inspiration. Like the drum racks, these loops were built out of processed samples from the one shots in the pack. The loops are divided into four categories:
Buy a new speaker - After playing these, you might have to. Absolutely lthy and heavy industrial drums that split the skin of the original one shots to reveal someting entirely new.
Computer - Computer-controlled blip bloops. These loops feature more tonal sounds and light staccato hits. A kind of digital fascsimile of the famous C78 drum machine.
Loosehop - Lo-fi hip-hop inspired beats with plenty of boom bap and swing.
Tiny rave - Throw a party. Featuring faster tempos, dance beats, and electronic madness, these loops are like putting all your tiny sound-makers - your Volcas, your Pocket Operators, etc. - into a live rig and gathering all your friends for some late- night performance and celebrating.
