Detunized releases 1konkret, a sound library for Ableton Live.

Because nothing is more annoying than screaming hard disks, rumbling elevators, creaking doors and windows or even espresso machines going into standby.

The results are 99 lacy created presets for the Live library that introduce a wide spectra of acousmatic sounds. The Live Pack includes categories like “Cadenced”, “Impulse”, “Retro-SciFi” and even harmonically playable Pads, Leads and Textures.
1konkret is available to purchase for the introductory price of 7 EUR.

Detunized has announced City Traffic, a sample library for Ableton Live.
City Traffic brings the daily noise of Berlin´s road traffic to the Live library.
The Live Pack contains recordings of main roads during the morning rush hour, when the trolley car rumbles over the rails and the trucks are roaring through the kettles. In between a bunch of honking mopeds and cars with broken exhaust pipes are fighting for their space. Commuter trains are crossing every minute, the omnibus arrives in time and the long-distance trains pass the station with squeaking brakes. In the evening it is rainy and at least the suburb calms down a little bit.
City Traffic consists of 10 different sceneries that are split into 55 single takes, each one with a length of 30 to 150 seconds. The material offers exciting possibilities for scoring, radio play and composition.
City Traffic is available to purchase as a direct download for 4.80 EUR. Detunized subscribers pay 3.90 EUR.
