Free Live Racks From Livid Instruments


Livid Instruments, best known for their line of MIDI controllers, has released two free Racks for Ableton Live users.

The first Rack features the classic 8-bit sounds of the Commodore 64/Mode Machines SID:

Livid’s KC Harvey-Taylor sat down with one recently to break out some sounds for some drums and samplers that are perfect for retro-game effects or just punching through a mix with the characteristic edgy sounds of low-bit, lo-fi, old-school computers.

This free set of samples are conveniently wrapped up in an Ableton Live Pack and includes a 23-sound Drum Rack, a multi-sample Bass, a couple nice lead synths with effects, and some MIDI clips to get you started. If you don’t have live, you can just download the WAV files.
