THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK OF ABLETON LIVE PACKS!
PerforModule Collection ONE set the standard, Collection TWO raises the bar….
Five PerforModule packs for one bargain price the Collection TWO kicked things off with the double pack of Ionic FX and Advanced Splytterz and then extended to the One Knob Wonders. We’ve now completed the line up with the Transmuterz & Electorz and Groovification packs…
Animus Invidious brings the latest set of 64 single-knob effects racks each designed for a specific purpose, ranging from performance effects to mixing tools.
Each One-Knob Wonder effect rack has just a single macro control. Simply twist the knob to find the ideal position for the desired purpose, and always feel free to automate for added suave and precision. Generally, the effects are disabled (100% dry) at their default position. With 64 effects there’s too much to list here so check them out here with Soundcloud demos here…
This massive premium pack of effects and tools are for mastering and shaping your sound in Ableton Live. Unlike his previous packs these use MaforLive to provide dynamic feedback to the controls in each rack so you can dial in your favourite settings, sit back and relax safe in the knowledge that what ever audio you feed them you’ll get the desired result. Heres a selection:
IONIC FILTER – A low-cut filter coupled with a high-shelf filter, which dynamically react to the input characteristics and to each other for organic attenuation.
IONIC DENOISE – A multiband denoiser which reacts to the input signal in an attempt to carefully preserve the original tone.
AI TRACK COMP – Well-behaved channel compressor with parameters reacting to both input and output signals in realtime, enhancing makeup gain automatically while setting the dynamic threshold intelligently. If you push it past a certain point, it starts saying “no” more emphatically… ensuring that it does not over-compress.
BRIGHT VALLEY COMPRESSOR – A “mid-side serial mastering compressor” taking its routing configuration inspiration from a famous hardware mastering compressor but having its own distinct sound.
IONIC BASS STRIP – A channel strip specially calibrated for use on bass guitar and bass synth instruments, with ai-reactive self-levelling tone stack pots, parallel routing, and custom waveshape growl.
IONIC SPACE – Mid-side reverb + delay which reacts dynamically to bloom during softer moments, curtailing itself during transients to preserve natural clarity.
In this instalment of PerforModule genius we present a suite of tools that split an audio stream by various methods. The primary usage of these is for the ability to apply different effects to the different split channels, but they can also be extremely useful just for soloing bands to listen to a particular channel, check out a selection of whats on offer below:
4-way Splytter – Splits audio into 4 frequency bands: “Depth”, “Lower Mids”, “Upper Mids” & “Brightness”
5-Way Splytter – Splits audio into 5 frequency bands; there are two versions, one each for honing in on either the lower or higher ranges.
6-Way Splytter – Splits audio into 6 frequency bands which are calibrated to the subjective human hearing range, very useful for soloing to hear bands.
10-Way Splytter – Splits audio into 10 narrow frequency bands.
Behind the Back Panner – Phase-shifting panning technique for virtual surround sound or odd spatial effects.
CenterEdges Splytter – This is just like the MidSide Splytter, but it also splits the “side” channel furthermore into left and right.dge).
LeftRight Splytter – Put different effects onto the left and right channels of a stereo track, should you desire to do so.
LRMS Splytter – This rack combines L-R processing and M-S processing chains in parallel.
SPL Splytter – Splits the audio into your choice of 2 to 6 parallel chains which add up to perfect unity sound pressure level.
Tri Devices – Racks filled with yummy pre-calibrated effects to immediately apply and utilise
TriTube – Triple-acting preamp with controls calibrated for optimal application of two alternate flavors: “Crunch” and “Punch”.
In this Ableton Live Pack, PerforModule presents a suite of template racks which are designed for easy creation of your own custom multi-instrument and multi-effect “selector” racks. With automatically disablement of unselected chains for maximal economization of cpu at all times. Each rack has a master macro knob to switch between chains; the other 7 macros are left blank for you to map connecting to enclosed devices, if desired.
Electorz – racks which switch abrubtly between chains…
4, 8, 16, 32 FX Electorz – Cut like a badman between your FX…
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 64, 100 Instrument Electorz – Do you need any more options??
Tranzmuterz – racks which fade smoothly between chains.
2, 3, 5 FX Tranzmuterz – A Better Home for your ONE KNOB WONDERS you’ll not find…
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 16, 28, 32, 42, 50, 64 Instrument Tranzmuters –
Note: these racks are very carefully gainstaged to crossfade between effect chains with utmost consistency of level.
PerforModule locked himself away and got out his spreadsheet, the challenge to come up with a pack of grooves that can transform static boring loops and give them back their swing! Within the Ableton Live Pack are a wealth of groove files based around three distinct flavours:
Mathematical Grooves – alter swing timing based on 80 choice mathematical number sequences.
BreakFill Grooves – utilise velocity ramping for a selection of 24 transition effects.
Quantize Grooves – impose your choice of 6 hard quantizations.
