Detunized has announced Gra.FX2, the second installment of a series of graphic generated sounds for Ableton Live.
This Live Pack delivers a surprising toolbox of 63 instruments for the creation of otherworldly, dissonant textures and drones. The sample pool of the instruments was created by parsing more than 100 bitmaps by a variety of specialized software tools.
Although Gra.FX2 covers an extensive range from SciFi-melodies to LoFi dust-noise patterns each single instrument follows an unified macro control layout. This allows for fast and intuitive interaction with external controllers like Push.
Gra.FX2 is available to purchase as a download for 9 EUR. As a special offer, Gra.FX2 and its predecessor Gra.FX are availabe as a bundle at an introductory price of 12 EUR. This offer is valid for a limited time only.
Detunized has also announced it has finished testing all previous releases with the forthcoming Live 9.
The final release of LIVE 9 will host all Detunized Live Packs without any restrictions. Release numbers DTS001 to DTS046 were installed and tested successfully. Throughout the entire testing routines no drawbacks had been detected.

Detunized has announced the release of the Polite 800 Live Pack and Refill featuring the sounds of the Korg Poly 800.
„Polite 800“ introduces another famous eighties synthesizer: the Korg Poly 800, a classic hybrid synth that is equipped with digital controlled oscillators and a 24dB analog filter.
The Library contains 35 instruments which perfectly capture the spirit of this battery driven unit.
Both, the Live Pack and the Refill introduce a standardized control layout which is easy to familiarize with.
Nevertheless all controls and switches of the Live Racks and Refill Combinators are multi-connected to more than 20 parameters per instrument. So hot-swapping through the included Basses, Keys, Pads, Brasses and FX sounds is easy but invites for spontaneous in-depth tweaking at the same time.
Polite 800 is available to purchase for 9 EUR.

Detunized has announced the release of its Guitar Abetlon Live Pack.
“Guitar” is the latest Live library made by Detunized´s lead sound designer Stephan Marche. The Live Pack contains the sounds of a stock acoustic guitar that was fitted with 3 steel and 3 nylon strings.
Each of the 6 strings was recorded chromatically in two passes – thumb and plectrum. The sounds were captured with a contact and a condenser microphone into dual-mono files.
These files are phase-aligned and thus the sound of the two microphones can be blended seamlessly by a dedicated macro control that comes pre-mapped in each rack.
Besides the main sounds a variety of more than 50 side noises like string scrapes and squeaks were recorded. With these additional sounds a nice amount of realism can be dialed in to the instruments.
“Guitar” contains 2 guitars and 3 bass presets plus a drum machine that is built around the side-noises and body hits. Additionally some interesting adaptions from the original sounds are included. These adaptions extend the library with flexible pad and soundscape generators.
The Guitar Live Pack is available to purchase for 9 EUR.
