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.

Wubwubwubwubwubwubwub. Urp.

I swore I’d never make a straight-up dubstep bass patch, but since that train shows no sign of stopping this year, it’s time for me to jump the shark.

Of course, I couldn’t resist calling attention to that fact, so the preset is named… Well, you KNOW what it’s named.

Sharkjumper is compatible with Ableton Live 8.1.5 and higher.

Francis Prève releases Mattel Synsonics Kit for Ableton

Francis Prève has released a free Mattel Synsonics Kit sound library for Ableton Live.

Synsonics for Ableton by Francis Prève
Synsonics for Ableton

Unlike the more insectile sounds coming from the Roland and Korg boxes of the same era, the sound of the Synsonics was vaguely reminiscent of the Simmons SDS-V or Pollard Syndrum. The toms had an aggressive vibe that few products from that time could match – and the cymbals were glorious blasts of white noise.

About a month ago, I pulled my Synsonics of its shelf in my studio, fired it up and started sampling. The results are in this Live 7 compatible Drum Rack. Hope you dig it.

The Mattel Synsonics Kit for Ableton is available to download at no cost.
