Free Live Drum Rack from Field Recordings

I had the awesome oppertunity of being a part of Sonic Bloom Music Academy. We had 20+ students out in nature for a class on music production. 30 hours of class time… it was cray. Had such a great time with everyone.

On day two I did an activity on field recording. I had students go out and record samples from the festival grounds, and we turned them into a drum rack. I took these samples and polished them up into an amazing Drum Rack for Ableton Live.  Check out the way they sound in the video below. You will also see a free / by donation download of the Live Pack under the video.

I am actually really stoked on how this Drum Rack sounds. There are lots of cool textures in here. Happy to share this with you all. If you have questions or use the rack in your music, comment below.

iPad Second Monitor for Ableton Live – Windows and Mac

Just got a new iPad and what was the first thing I did… Control Ableton Live with it.

I tried out the best solution for connecting the iPad as a second monitor to a Windows Machine. Best thing I have found is the Duet Display app. Check out my video walkthrough below:

This is the first thing I did and I am stoked with my iPad. If you got any apps or things I have to check out, comment below.

Subpac M2 Unboxing – Wearable Bass!

I got the Subpac M2 in the mail and had to fit the urge to rip it open so I could make an unboxing video.  The Subpac M2 is a massive bass bin on your back. This thing is amazing for production, gaming, and listening to bass music. I will have to make a whole video raving about it. First off though… an unboxing vid.

Right off the bat, I can tell that the creators of the Subpac have a design in mind. The boxing is minimal and sleek. The device its self has a similar aesthetic.  It’s got all the adapters and everything I need for the studio and the road.  Stoked to do a full video review. Stay tuned.

Check out the Subpac M2 on Amazon.

Glitch Hop MIDI Library – Free Download

I have found myself rocking out to a lot of Glitch Hop of late. It’s just got a great bouncy hard groove to it.

I decided to take a week and really dive into Glitch Hop drums. I’ve been working on a massive collection of Drum Loops for my new Glitch Hop Beat Builder.

I programmed a lot of MIDI Drum Loops along the way and decided to make a free/by donation MIDI Library. The MID Library has 66 Drum Beats that are ready to use in your music creation. To get a taste, here is what I turned those MIDI Loops into:

Santur – Hammered Dulcimer Instrument Rack

I am diving back into music production and finding myself obsessed with Arabic scales and instruments.  I’ve always loved the Hammer Dulcimer and created an Instrument Rack. One for western scales and others for the Maqam scales.

Updates 432 Live Pack – New Instruments and Manual

I decided to level up the 432 Live Pack.  I spent a day making an updated version. The New Version is made in live 9.5 and will work with 9.5+ There are also a few new features.

The first big feature is a more in-depth user manual. I’ve gotten questions of how to manage presets with the Live Pack and decided to make a walk through.  Another big update is 5 new 432 Presets. I took some of my free instruments (the Toy Piano, Sub Bass, Kalimba thumb piano and others ) and turned them into 432 instruments.

If you already have the 432 Live Pack, then these updates are free. Just login to your account and go to My Account -> downloads to download the Live Pack.  When you buy a Live Pack from me, you get unlimited downloads and updates. If you don’t have the 432 Essentials Live Pack, check it out. 

Feww… been a good day. Now back to music making.
