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.
.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.
Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download, an abridged version of the installation will be shown further down this page.
ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.
Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
V1.0.0 – Released 6th April 2023
This sound pack does not include traditional kick drums, snares, pads or basslines, but with any sound, those elements can be found within or created by using these samples.
User Friendly’s approach to sound design is not one that could be described as careful or scientific.
Largely the approach is based on one rule: Process and re process.
Many of the sounds are sampled from hardware synthesizers, processed in the DAW, then exported to hardware samplers where they are processed again and resampled.
This workflow of creating, breaking apart, stiching back together, and breaking again can happen many times until it can become very difficult to say what a sound is or where it came from. Instead, an intricate network of complex sounds begins to create itself from the pieces.
