AfroDJMac is back this week with something for Synthtopia readers – an 808 rack for Ableton Live:
This week I have a rack that is made from an 808 Kick drum sample. It allows you to play the 808 bass drum as a pitched instrument, so that it stays in tune with your tracks. It can also be used for bass lines, and, at higher octaves, makes a nice electric keyboard type instrument.
In the video I go over how I made it, so that you can apply the technique to any sample, and then I dissect the individual components of the Ableton rack. Thanks for your support and enjoy!
Not sure what’s up with the vocal mic audio on the video this week – AfroDJMac may have taken our “less discussion and more percussion” rant too literally.
Anyway – you can get the details and the download at the AfroDJMac site. And, if you like what’s he’s doing with his weekly Ableton Live downloads – don’t forget to let him know.
