Francis Prève releases free Moog Sub Phatty Simpler Eight-pack for Ableton

Moog Sub Phatty at Francis Prève

Francis Prève has released a free Moog Sub Phatty instrument pack for Ableton Live.

Moog’s Sub Phatty (the basis for their new Sub 37, incidentally) takes their Phatty engine and adds a sub-oscillator and new “Multidrive” circuits that are capable of some really in-your-face sounds.

Since I’ve been using it for close to a year, I figured it was time for another round of Moog-based Simpler patches. Because the Multidrive is so unique and the extra sub-oscillator adds textural complexity, I focused on those for this pack.

The Live pack is a free download. Requires Ableton Live 8.4.1 or higher.

Francis Prève intros MS-20 Mini Simpler Sixpack

Francis Prève MS-20 Mini Simpler Sixpack

Francis Prève has released the MS-20 Mini Simpler Sixpack, a collection of 6 Simpler instrument for Ableton Live.

Korg’s MS-20 Mini has quickly become one of the biggest synths of 2013. Maybe even THE biggest synth of 2013.

With its full-figured filters and a semi-modular approach to sound design, the MS-20 has a sound that’s so beefy and unique that it’s earned a very special place in my studio.

Having tinkered with it for the better part of the summer, I figured it was time for another six-pack of Simpler patches. Since the MS-20’s filters are so distinctive, I focused on their sound as the basis for these presets.

The pack is a free download. Requires Ableton Live 8.1.5 or higher.

Francis Prève releases free Mopho X4 Live Pack

Dave Smith Mopho X4

Francis Prève has released a free Mopho X4 sound library for Ableton Live.

Dave Smith’s Mopho X4 made my Beatport News 2012 Top 10 Tech Tools list for good reason. It can sound sweet-as-pie or downright nasty, depending on how you program it.

Since my previous downloads have been a tad on the smooth side, I decided to explore the grungy, filthy aspects of the X4 – resulting in seven Simpler instruments that really show what it can do.

The Mopho X4 Simpler Pack for Ableton Live (compatible with Ableton Live 8.1.5 and higher) is a free download.

Francis Prève releases SH-101 8-pack—Free Roland SH-101 Ableton Instruments

Roland SH-101 synth

Francis Prève has announced a free collection of Roland SH-101 Ableton Instruments.

As with the all of the other Simpler packages on this blog, I left the devices in their default state, with filtering, LFOs and envelopes off, so you can use them as starting points for your own sounds.

That said, I did some quick-n-dirty looping on these patches, which was tricky due to the nature of Simpler and the slight inconsistencies of analog-derived waves. Fortunately, the samples are long enough that many users will be able to switch it off if they choose.

The sample pack is available as a free download for Ableton Live 8.1.5 and higher.
