AIR Music Technology: Ethereal Instruments for Ableton RackDec 06, 2017 - 03:08
Utilising over 2.0gb of pin point accurate recordings of live and bowed notes, textures, location recordings and analogue synths in conjunction with Ableton Lives samplers and macros, Ethereal Instruments provides you with a first hand opportunity to explore a new world of expansive pads, cinematic ambiences, bowed instruments, found sound textures and bespoke recordings.
The collection is divided down into 12 Ableton Live Racks, each with it's own set of 6 corresponding macros that control everything from rich piano overtones to analogue choruses, alternate waveform variations and a whole wealth of beautifully sculpted Ableton Live FX.
With the greatest flexibility in mind, we've individually created the most creative set of Ableton Instrument macros to compliment the original recordings ensuring each instrument is as expressive and malleable as possible. Inside this beautiful collection you'll find:
Instruments within the collection:
- Roland Analogue - Optional combination of 4 analogue waveforms - Ideal for vast rich chord progressions and dense analogue pads. Macros allow mix between Fuzz Pad & Soft Pads offering huge flexibility.
- Voice - Multi-sampled female vocal ideal for ethereal, expansive and ambient pads. Float over the top of beautiful melodies and add that cinematic tone with ease.
- CS30 - Rich Analogue waveforms. Ideal for epic leads and emotive chord progressions.
- Bowed Guitar - Bowed guitar notes - ethereal, cinematic and beautiful. Inspired by Brian Eno & Sigur Ros. Ideal for film score, electronica and organic ambience.
- Keys - Multi-sampled piano at low velocities. Noise, texture and emotion exposed to provide a gentler side to this beautiful stringed instrument. Macro control of harmonic overtones for added expression and brightness.
- Koto - Multi-sampled and layered stringed instruments. Beautifully expressive with tones familiar to fans of Bonobo. 5th and octave delays offer truly unique and otherworldly overtones to match the oriental influences.
- FM - Multi-sampled FM synthesis. Rich chime tones against beautiful modulation. Analogue chorus FX for added movement and authenticity.
- Dry Bowed - Dry and up close recording for extra texture and grit. Ultra personal, this unique texture provides a tangible top layer for enhancing pads and leads.
- Thumb Piano - Beautifully recorded tuned percussion cuts through the mix against the other lengthier sounds.
- Little Synths - Twee, swelling and lush. Ideal for future bass inspired leads but highly flexible for all pallets and genres.
- Textures - Manipulated location recordings - This group of textures is perfect for layering over pads, side chaining, macro shifting for textural build ups and so much more. We've also included a more Lo-Fi version in the 'Tape Textures' macro control.
- Little Drums - Foley inspired drum one shots - the perfect accompaniment to all this delicious texture and expanse.
