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.

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.

Kalimba Thumb Piano Instrument Rack – Mbira

I love the delicate sound of the Kalimba thumb piano.  There is just something about it. It’s not quite a bell but has a similar quality.

Today I was cleaning out my studio of the random instruments I have. I decided to record some of them before I gave them away.  I recorded a collection of Kalimba Thumb Pianos to make a new instrument rack. Here is a video walk-through:

In the above link I also added the one-shot samples as a separate download for use in any DAW.

Free Dholak Drum Rack Ableton Live

I love adding Tabla, Dholak, and South Asia influenced drums in my music. It adds a really unique flavor and can be used in juxtaposition to other instruments.  Just a few months ago I made the Tabla Drum Rack and wanted to follow it up with a lesser-known, but just as amazing, instrument called the Dholak. This double head drum has a really cool sound.

Here is a walkthrough video on the Ableton Live Pack with the free Drum Rack:

You can download the Live Pack as well as the One Shot Samples (for any DAW) below.

I went through my recordings and created a massive, yet simple to use, Tabla Drum Rack for Ableton Live.
