AfroDJMac releases Y-Roc’s Flutes for Ableton

AfroDJMac has released Y-Roc’s Flutes, a free Ableton Live Pack featuring realistic flute sounds.

Cory Morgan, aka y-Roc, was kind enough to send me some interesting woodwinds samples. They consisted of some unusual flutes, a native flute and a bamboo flute. Each one has a slightly different timbre to them.

The samples are played with slight variations in pitch and tone, which make the finished instrument sound like an actual human played it, rather than a computer spitting back pitch-perfect robotic sounds.

The pack is a free download from AfroDJMac.

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

K-Devices has updates its AutoBeat and Herse Max for Live devices to version 1.1.

K-Devices AutoBeat

You know, our goal as M4L developers is to release always new cool devices and continuously improve and update the existing ones.

Today we have good news, wether you already got our packs at Ableton shop, or not.

If you already own AutoBeat or Herse, well, it’s time to download again: we just release 1.1 version for both, and of course, they are free for you ;)
The updates improve the devices and add extra contents… Of course the new versions are retro-compatible with your existing presets.

If you didn’t get your hands on AutoBeat or Herse yet, this is the time: with the current -20% offer at Ableton shop, you can grab these amazing devices for, let’s say that, a ridiculous price: AutoBeat is 23€/31$ instead of 29€/39$, Herse 15€/23$ instead of 19€/29$.

Changes in AutoBeat v1.1

  • Improved GUI.
  • Improved behavior of scales: they now refer to the note 1, the one in the bottom left, as root note per each scale selected.
  • Added OSC support.
  • Added local step sequencer lock for global random and default functions.
  • Added minimum and maximum values for velocity randomization in the macro area.
  • Added more scales.
  • Added semitone transpose for note pads.
  • 6 new drum racks and 30 new Instrument Racks from Ableton Certified Trainers and producers (Afro DJ Mac, Federico Ascari, Franz Rosati, Hyena, Noah Pread, Piezo).
  • Other minor improvements.

Changes in Herse v1.1

  • Improved GUI.
  • Added OSC support.
  • Added External MIDI Sync support and settings.
  • Added “empty buffer on unlock” parameter.
  • Added left/right movement in the grid.
  • Fixed a bug that may cause sliders to do not behave correctly on and after high CPU loads.
  • Other minor improvements.

Since now both AutoBeat and Herse support Open Sound Control, two new Lemur template are ready to be downloaded for free.

AutoBeat and Herse are available for purchase at a 20% discount until January 15th, 2015.

Detunized releases Abandoned Shelters – The Danish Bunker Coast

Detunized has announced the release of Abandoned Shelters – The Danish Bunker Coast, a new sample library for Ableton Live and Broadcast Wav.

Detunized Abandoned Shelters

Danish Bunker Coast library features mysterious and eerie sounds recorded in and around WW2 bunker relicts along the Danish West Coast.

The gathered ambiences form a comprehensive resource of steady winds, heavy gusts, rustling undergrowths as well as single waves and strong surfs that constantly crash into these otherworldly areas of concrete remains.

A big part of the library was recorded inside the bunkers where the strong nature elements of wind and water are transformed into heavily comb filtered textures and dark atmospheres.

Abandoned Shelters features

  • BWAV Universal (full version) $69 USD: 8 sceneries, 71 takes, 2 to 3+ minutes each, 24Bit/96kHz, embedded metadata, 5.8 GB.
  • BWAV Universal (light version) 15 EUR: 4 sceneries, 31 takes, 2+ minutes each, 24Bit/48kHz, embedded metadata, 1.2 GB.
  • Live Pack (requires Live 8/9) 15 EUR: 31 Clips/Instrument Racks, 1 set, 1.2 GB.
