A set of 16 new racks for Ableton’s Collision Instrument that explore the noisier side of the machine. From presets Vinylchurch to Petrol Pizzicato experiment with the darker side of sound design.
This pack includes 2 Live sets, 3 demo tapes, 3 construction kits, 25 clips, 16 original samples (4mb) and:
• 16 newly designed Collision presets
• 16 Sampler presets constructed with these Collision sounds
• Easy editing and sound morphing with pre-programmed Macros
Twiddling around with the Vocoder. Ableton Suite is required as Tension, Analog & Operator are used. M4L Max for Live NOT needed.
This pack includes midi files and audio clips.
Apart from the drum beats, all the sounds were made with this rack and bundled FX.
7 sounds 7 effects racks 7 colours 1 rainbow!
The Instrument rack has 7 samples chosen for their ability to work singly or in a group. The feel is self-consciously NOT trendy so you won't get a wobbly bass here though there is nothing to stop you inserting one.
The single global control fixes release length combined with filter resonance, the latter lending a subtle edginess as the note gets longer.
The effects racks are… Reverb, Chorus, Harmonics, Grain Repeats, Gate, Ping Delay, Tremolo.
A modern jazz quartet improvising in Ableton? Well, near enough.
I've taken Max for Live's snappily titled M4l.bg.15.AllTogether random sequence generator and inserted separate instances of it onto four different instruments: piano, guitar, percussion and double bass. This rack uses TENSION and ELECTRIC as the sound generators.
You'll notice that without too much tweaking the Max gizmo is pretty funky, especially if you put it into a 64-bar backwards and forwards random repeat thing. Are there some secret jazzers over at Cycling 74?
I've added in some AMP stuff for live sounding realism and some user-variables (using RESONATOR) that give the impression of a guitarist strumming (with a fuzz-box) rather than playing lead. AND a bit of a trick on the Percussion sound (it's actually TENSION playing a marimba) that makes it go scratchy if you mess with it. Try it out.
The double bass (TENSION again) is on a separate track so you don't have to use the M4L Carbonised Wood REVERB on it but you'll probably want to use the GLUE compressor.
You will notice there are no recorded clips in this rack. Just hit PLAY and see what happens... DO play with the variables. Do play trumpet.
