Sonic Faction has published the first in a new “micro tutorial” series, which will feature a short video of each instrument in the company’s new Archetype Ableton Bundle.
The first installment in the series is a three-minute tutorial for Clone, their 80’s synth hybrid.
Sonic Faction’s Taylor Martyr says, “Max for Live allows us to create custom-designed interfaces and intuitive controls that haven’t been possible in Ableton until now. Among its other features, Clone has a unique section called the ‘Delta Triangulator’ which allows users to rhythmically modulate their sound with ease. It’s great for when you want to achieve driving, 80’s-sounding bass lines”
Pricing and Availability. Sonic Faction’s Clone is available now, via the Sonic Faction website, for $49. The full Archetype Ableton Bundle page (includes Clone and 7 other Max for Live instruments) is available from Sonic Faction for $199.
