Ableton Magic Racks: Mix Essentials

Sample Magic has launched Ableton Magic Racks: Mix Essentials, a collection of 5 powerful Ableton Racks by Hedflux, designed for intuitive and precision sculpting of a track’s key elements.

Each rack has been expertly built to cater to the demands of modern dance music producers – rigorously tried, tested and tweaked to offer incisive mixing options with the simplest of controls for maximum dancefloor impact.

Built exclusively from Ableton’s native tools and FX, each macro-controllable rack offers deep-level and highly-targeted enhancement of the key mix components in any dance track, from kick drum to hi-hats, synths to bass.

Mix Essentials features

  1. Kick Tweaker – Tighten, deepen and fine-tune any kick drum. No transient is left un-tweaked in this comprehensive kick drum tool.
  2. Snare Shaper – Precise tonal and envelope controls to whip snares, claps, sticks and stacks into shape.
  3. Bass Toner – An essential of so many dance productions. Use Bass Toner to add weight, warmth and width to any weedy bassline or to sculpt and sharpen overbearing subs.
  4. Percussion Processor – Give life, movement and energy to percussion, hi-hats and tops.
  5. Synth Modulator – Creative tools to morph melodics with 8 simple macro controls.

The Rack Pack is available for purchase for £9.90 GBP.

Sounds To Sample Electro Jack, sample pack by Hedflux

Sounds To Sample Electro Jack

Sounds To Sample has released Electro Jack, a new sample pack by Hedflux.

Wonky beats, wobbly basslines, sleazy synths and twisted tops combine in full-force in Electro Jack, a floor-slaying grab-bag of 200+ XXX-rated loops.

58 nose-diving basslines jostle with 50 jackin’ beats and 48 off-kilter sleaze-synths and freaky FX rub shoulders with 52 envelope-pushing kick-free tops in the latest from Beatport chart-topping sound designer Hedflux.

With all sounds sourced in the analogue domain then abused in the digital, this pack offers a mix of full-on electro beats, tongue-in-cheek FX, darker LFO-trash B-Lines and hyper detailed glitch loops.

All loops are offered as 24-bit Wavs, with many melodic loops offered with variants for added flexibility.

Drop’n’play, Drop’n’chop, or Twist’n’Glitch for a vast array of original truly wonky song-starters.

Electro Jack is available to purchase for 15.95 EUR.
