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.

Patchworks updates Conductr Ableton controller app with Claydr MIDI keyboard

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Patchworks has released version 1.3 of the Conductr Ableton Live controller app, which now includes CLAYDR, a smart & user friendly MIDI keyboard that makes sense on an iPad.

Conductr with Claydr

Until today, Conductr was best known as a live performing-oriented Ableton controller app. But the developers want to keep the app growing and expanding its possibilities as much as possible.
Now, Conductr gets into the production realm with the release of CLAYDR, a keyboard designed to improve every artist’s composition and performance with some unique features.

Claydr works as a MIDI keyboard that allows you to play with any instrument featured in Ableton Live. It will help you to transform your ideas into music, no matter how great or not so great your skills are: Claydr features an extremely versatile chord & scales generator and can even correct out of scale notes when linked to a MIDI hardware keyboard.

Claydr features

  • 4 rows onscreen: each row can contain a different octave and can be edited independently.
  • Each row’s settings include functions such as Add Note, Velocity (3 different modes), Spread, Random, Hold and Bend.
  • More parameters can be controlled using the Claydr Shift Mode: Scale Selection (58 different options), Key mode and Chromatic mode.

The Conductr free basic version includes a one row and one scale only version of Claydr. Users can purchase Claydr Premium to get 4 rows onscreen and 58 scales. All previous Conductr Premium Full Pack owners will get Claydr’s complete version for free.

EDM Gold releases Monster EDM Ableton Projects Vol. 2

EDM Gold has released Monster EDM Ableton Projects Vol. 2, a collection of 4 epic big room house tracks built from scratch using Abelton 9’s suite of plugins and effects and Native Instruments Massive.

EDM Gold Monster EDM Ableton Projects Vol. 2

The projects are designed to give you a special insight into the processes used to make huge EDM bangers. You can pull the tracks apart and see how all the elements fit together in the mix, how the synth patches are constructed, how FX are chained together to achieve the biggest possible sound and how the automation brings everything together.

You can look at the use and combination of sidechain compression, multiband compression and EQ to fill the right sonic spectrum. See how different FX are positioned within a chain to get different effects and how it all ties together to make a huge tune.

For ableton users that are fans of labels like Spinnin’ Records and CR2 this is a gold mine and not something to be missed. The tracks are as always, 100% royalty free for commercial use so you can rework, remix and mash them up until your hearts content.

The pack is available from Loopmasters for £19.95 GBP.
