Free Music Software: New York electronic musician AfroDJMac sends word of another free live rack – the 16th in his weekly series of free racks:
I hope all is well and this day finds you deep within the comfort of Summer living.
I’m giving away a lot of my secrets this week! I am showing the world how I handle my drum tracks in Ableton Live. The download comes with an effect rack with an assortment of ways to create variations, fills, add drama, subtly effect or glitch to oblivion. Also included are some clips of the actual drums I use live, to illustrate how I create unique and sometimes random drum fills and variations that always come in on time.
From there, I show you how I midi map all of these things to make everything just a press of a button, turn of a knob, or slide of a fader away. The accompanying video illustrates how this is done, and I also wrote out very explicit instructions on how I make this all work.
One final thing, I included a track from my performance last Friday, that puts these techniques into a real world situation. I hope you enjoy and spread the word.
You can get the download and more details at the AfroDJMac site.
