AfroDJMac has released a free Noises, Risers, Swooshes Rack for Ableton Live.

So much of our enjoyment in life relies on tension and release, and music is no different. This weeks free Ableton Live Rack is designed to help build that tension and release in your music.

I’ve created a bunch of white noise risers and fallers, sampled some choice sounds from old video games, and created synths that climb and fall many octaves over time. Many of these sounds have been staples of dance and electronica for years, but more and more, as genres of music mix together, I find these sounds as useful in rock music as they are in anything else.

Experiment with them. Use them to alert the listener to changes that are approaching, and to smooth out transitions.

The Ableton Live rack is available as a free download from AfroDJMac.
