AfroDJMac has launched Easy Multi Band FX, a free Ableton Live Pack.
When you start running your sounds through effects, you run the risk of killing some of the important frequencies within that sound. The most obvious example is on bass sounds. A lot of times I add distortions or reverbs on a bass and the sound either loses its low-end or becomes muddy. If only there was a way to put my distortion on the higher frequencies and leave the bass frequencies alone so they can stay powerful…
Of course there is a way! This technique, commonly referred to as “multi-band processing”, allows you to split up the different frequencies of your sound (in our case Highs, Mids, and Lows) and affect each one separately. So I’ve created a Free Ableton Live Rack that divides your sounds into three sections, Low, Mid and High (you can adjust what the frequency range of each section) and allows you to place effects on each band separately.
The Easy Multi Band FX Pack is a free download at AfroDJMac.
