36 Pads is a user-friendly set of racks designed for Ableton Intro, so it is potentially available to every Ableton owner. If you’re interested in unlocking some secrets of sound design in Ableton Live, and/or you’re looking for some dark, complex and imaginative pads to inspire your performance, this pad collection is for you.
Flintpope spent some time writing over 100 original sounds in AAS Chromaphone and diverse instruments in NI Reaktor then sampled and layered and multi-FX’d them into complex pods of of sound in Ableton’s Simpler.
Each of the thirty six racks has four layers of long, evolving samples spread over the stereo field with dedicated macro dials that are uniform throughout the set.
Simpler 1 has Simple Delay
Simpler 2 has Granular Delay
Simpler 3 has Reverb
Simpler 4 has Chorus
Every instance of Simpler (there is a total of 144) has EQ Three for further sonic control.
These presets can form a starter palette of drones and ambiences for those doing Ambient, Downtempo, some Lounge, Jungle, Drum n Bass, Glitch Hop, Cinematic and even Orchestral. But don’t stop there, get tweaking and re-layering, drop in your own samples and get creative!
