Big Pad Chords – Virtual Riot, Odesza, Wavetable

So bass will only get you so far. You also need chords, pads, and other sounds to make the track feel finished. I am a big fan of lush chords. The kind I hear in Virtual Riot’s and Odesza’s tracks. I made this new Wavetable Preset with that sound in mind. Check out the video below or grab the preset for a $1.

Ipu Hawaiian Percussion – Free Drum Rack

Ipu (Ee-p-u) is a percussion instrument made from gourds that is often used to provide a beat for hula dancing.  I love the unique sound of this instrument and have used it as additive percussion in my tracks. Always looking for unique sounds from around the world.

I took some samples I recorded this awesome gourd and put it into a drum rack in Ableton Live.  Watch the video below to learn more and the links to grab it for free / by donation.

Celtic Harp Instrument Rack

Good music is all about dynamics. One way I am able to get my music to have a wider range is having many different types of instruments. Instead of just having synths, I love to mix in organic acoustic sounds, physical modeling synths, and square wave synths. It gives the track interesting sounds and feels more dynamic and full.

One instrument I love to mix in my synth-heavy tracks is this Celtic Harp I created. It’s so clean and pops out the mix. It can add a delicate flavor to an otherwise heavy track.

This instrument is for free / by donation.  Check out the video below and a link to the download.
