Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.
.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.

ADM AMBIENT is an Ableton Live Pack that contains the best atmospheric, evolving Instrument Rack presets collected from 16 classic Ableton Live Packs by Brian Funk. Many instruments are built from samples of exciting analog and digital synthesizers, such as the Sequential Circuits’s Prophet 6 and Prophet 8, Roland’s Juno 106, Moog’s Sub Phatty and Concertmate MG-1, Teenage Engineering’s OP-1, Korg’s MS-20, and various VST plug-ins. Other presets are built with samples of real world instruments that have been manipulated and processed with a range of effects.
The instruments are built on a variety of different musical themes. Some samples were recorded to VHS and/or Cassette tapes, creating a vintage and sometimes lo-fi sound. Others are meant to capture the essence of classic vintage synthesizers. Some presets are have dense textures and rhythmic movements, while others are softer, smoother, and more peaceful.
AMBIENT contains sounds perfect for laying down atmospheric backdrops for any style of audio project. The 120 presets each have their own carefully programmed Macro Controls, which allow you to customize any sound, however you like, to fit in your own musical compositions. In that way, these 120 sounds can be changed into an endless diversity of textures, helping you develop your own unique sound and style for your music.
AMBIENT is a self-installing and highly organized Ableton Live Pack that makes finding the perfect sound easy. After AMBIENT auto-installs into your Ableton Live Library, you will find the instruments with your Factory Packs, as well as in the Sounds portion of your Library, under “Ambient & Evolving” and “Pad.” Simply drag a preset onto a track in your project and get to work!
ADM AMBIENT contains sounds and instruments carefully and lovingly crafted by Brian Funk, an experienced Ableton Certified Trainer and curious sound designer. Each instrument was built to satisfy his own personal needs and desires in musical instrument design. ADM AMBIENT was curated and organized by Animus Invidious of PerforModule for Isotonik Studios.
