Cluster Sound releases Rhapsody free Live Pack

Cluster Sound Rhapsody

Cluster Sound has announced the release of Rhapsody, a free Ableton Live Pack featuring the sounds of the Rhapsody 490 polyphonic analog string synthesizer by Elka.

The Rhapsody 490 comes with just three sounds (Violoncello, Strings and a combination of these two sounds) characterized by a fixed distinctive chorus effect. But the unit used for this library has been equipped with a switch that allows to activate/deactivate the chorus, definitely a very useful hack!

Rhapsody is a multi-sample Live Pack based on 6 recordings created by sampling the three sounds with and without the chorus effect. Rhapsody delivers 21 Live Presets (with useful macro controls) each of which consists of 49 perfectly-looped samples (each note of the 4-octave keyboard).

Rhapsody features

  • 220 MB content, 24 Bits/44.1 Khz.
  • 6 Multi-sample Recordings (294 samples).
  • One sample per note (4 octaves).
  • Perfect loop-points (no crossfading).
  • 21 Live Presets.
  • 15 Sampler/Simpler devices.

The Rhapsody pack is a free download for registered Cluster Sound users (requires Ableton Live 9/Suite 9).
