Free Ableton Rack 34: Space Forest Synth
19th November 2011
For anyone looking for a space
aged, intergalactic sound straight out of an alien
planet, this week’s free
Ableton Live rack is for
Here is a sound that is alive with
movement and textures. Created from a heavily
processed vocal sample, the Space Forest Synth
offers some exciting sound sculpting possibilities.
The synth is then racked up with some effects to
add to the spacey feel, as well as a built in
arpeggiator, allowing you to morph it to taste.
Lately, I’ve been having a lot of
fun resampling chords from all kinds of instruments
from guitars to synths. In the following video,
after taking you through the Ableton rack, I show
you my technique for creating all new sounds by
resampling instruments. From there, it’s quick and
easy to create all new sounds and progressions from
your preexisting material. It’s a total blast!
Below is an instrumental track I created last night
using that exact technique (drums from my Operator
Drums Rack and resampled arpeggiated chords and
baseline created with the new Kasio M4L Instrument).
