The Subaqueous launches Mix Contest

The Subaqueous has announced a Mix Contest, a contest in which aspiring and established musicians create a track using a free Live pack full of samples, instruments, one shots, and more.

Subaqueous Mix Contest

Once you have the Live Pack you can mold these sounds into your own track. The song templates are made to help kick-start your creativity. They lay out a feel and some parts. Take it from there.

Any track you make from these packs is totally yours and you will have all royalties and ownership of them as well. You might win hundreds in Swag and get a new track for your next album.

Three winners will take prizes, which include a one on one class with Subaqueous, Ableton Live packs, WaveDNA Liquid Drummer, Icon Controller, AfroDJMac Super 8 Bit Pack, and more.

The deadline for submitting your track is May 12th, 2014.

Subaqueous releases Retro Drums – Free Vintage Drum Racks

Subaqueous Retro Drums

Subaqueous has rekeased Retro Drums, a free vintage drum racks pack for Ableton Live.

Of late I’ve been really inspired by the sounds of the 80’s. I even watched the movie Xanadu last night for inspiration. What a terribly awesome movie by the way. Iv’e been loving the vintage tape sounds,lush synth pads,and striking percussion. I’ve had a chance to work with some analog drum machines to make Live Drum Racks for my production. The drum machines were the Alesis HR16, LinnDrum, and Simmons Crash Trap.

I’ve spent time processing the one shots, 76 in total, and putting them in drum racks with Macro controls for Ableton Live 9. I’m really proud of how these racks turned out and wanted to share them with you all. Hope to inspire some rad chillwave and glo-fil, been really digging that genre of late.

The drum racks pack is a free download. A pack of one shot samples for use in any DAW is also available.

After months of work I am proud to bring forth another free MIDI collection. This is a collection of Caribbean influenced beats. In studying the different music styles and rhythms of the Caribbean I made 63 different MIDI drum patterns. This pack has beats from Moombahton, Reggaeton, Dancehall, and Reggae.

I’ve put this library together in such a way you can just drag and drop the MIDI’s into your DAW of choose. This way you can drop them in quickly and start writing out new beats and songs.

The MIDI library is free to those who join the Subaqueous mailing list.
