Sample Logic has announced the release of Metalix, a sound library for Ableton Live.
Metalix is a toolkit of morphed metallic instruments, percussives, atmospheric soundscapes, pads, and tempo-synced audio loops for cinematic music production. Based on recorded metallic instruments and sounds, Sample Logic has once again revolutionized sample programming by creating never before heard evocative organic instruments and bombastic loops. Following in the footsteps of Sample Logic’s long tradition of award-winning products that “blur the line between music and sound design”, Metalix is a must have for musicians, performers, and producers of all types.
The instruments (presets) and clips (loops) are seamlessly integrated into Ableton Live, which makes for a smooth workflow with easy to use intuitive user controls. Each instrument uses Live’s Rack format, with the 8 Macro Controls meticulously mapped to provide powerful top-level control for immediate tweakability. This also means that all of the instruments and loops are ready to be mapped to a hardware controller or automated directly in Live.
Effects and parameters include: Attack & Release, Reverb, Filter Delay, Arpegiator, Filter Cuttoff & Resonance, and much more. This makes sound sculpting each instrument intuitive and easy. On top of this, all clips and presets are production ready, custom tailored and mastered using Live’s powerful audio effects.
- 215 instrument Racks of various styles ranging from ambience, impacts, transition effects, kits, melodic and arped multi sampled instruments, and multi layered ensembles.
- 64 tempo synced rhythmic loops.
- 12 template sets (multiple instruments and clips preselected record enabled and ready to be launched, played, and performed)
- Live demo sets that show Metalix in action and can be manipulated, performed, or re-arranged.
Metalix works exclusively with Suite 8, Live 8 or Live Intro and is available only as a direct download, priced at $99.99 USD.
