Dephaultz Rack Pack – Workflow Enhancing Default Settings

Price £8.99


The Dephaultz Rack Pack now consists of 99 effect racks that give you the basic range of controls for every core function built into Ableton Live 9.7’s built-in audio effects, with relevant parameters mapped to the 8 macros to give ultimate flexibility coupled with precision.

The pack includes every single audio effect that is available with Ableton Live 9 Standard and Suite. Some of the effects have one rack which covers its complete functionality. Many effects, however, have different dephault racks to supply different primary capability types.

It is recommended to make your own set of default racks for each effect and this download saves you the grunt work with a cohesive set.

“Why are custom default racks useful? I can just save effect presets.”

1) Instant Mapped Hardware Control. You will have for each basic effect a rack with 8 macros which are easy to control with a midi controller which uses Instant Mapping (usually controllers like this have a row of 8 knobs which correspond to the selected rack’s 8 macros — whichever Dephaultz Rack Pack has the “blue hand” will automatically be controlled by those 8 midi controller hardware knobs).
For more on instant mappings, open up the help view in Live & click the “Midi Controllers” section. Then go to page 7.

2) Parameter Clarity. Some of the devices have exotic parameters which might not make sense at first. These racks help one to understand the function of parameters by how they are mapped and named.

3) Default Macro Positions. [See the PerforModule blog post previous to this one] Set the default poitions which snap back on clicking the “delete” key to what YOU want. You can re-save the presets after tweaking the knobs to your favorite starting positions.

4) Categorization. As per the “organize like a boss” PerforModule blog post, you can make these racks appear in the “categories” section of your browser. Very useful. (if following the install instructions below, this will occur automatically)

5) Just Because. It’s nice having default racks you can drop in with sweet starting position to quickly tweak for particular results.

Dephaultz Rack Pack Contents:

Amp Cab Dephaultz – Bass / Boost / Crisp / Guitar Chug / Guitar Crunch / Guitar Roots / Guitar Scorch / Guitar Solo

Different mics and cabinets were strategically set to different amp models for a range of multipurpose flavors. Most of these will be best suited to guitar-like timbres, but the first three – “Crisp” in particular – can be beneficial on almost any type of source material

Auto Filter Dephaultz – BandPass / HighPass / LowPass / Notch

Auto Pan Dephaultz – Sync / UnSync

Beat Repeat Dephaultz – Crazy / Logical

Chorus Dephaultz – Mod1 / Mod2 / Single

A not-that-commonly-used compressor feature, frequency response, kicks in if the “FreQ Resp.” macro is moved above or below 500Hz. (Use this if you want your signal to compress based only on a certain frequency element of itself)

Corpus Dephaultz – Beam / Marimba / Membrane / Pipe / Plate / String / Tub

EQ Three Dephaultz – Rough / Flat

Filter Delay Dephaultz – Digital / Tape / Narrowing / Widening

Frequency Shifter – Synced / Unsynced

Ping Pong Delay Dephaultz – Digital / Tape

Simple Delay Dephaultz – Digital / Tape / Offsetter (great for quick and easy stereo widening)

Looper – Live Jam Dephault

Set to be able to jam on an input instrument and make a starting loop which the ableton time then matches

Phaser Dephaultz – Earth Envelope / Space LFO

Reverb Dephaultz – Entrance / Hallway / Moon

Resonator Dephaultz

Saturator Dephaultz – Waveshaper / Analog / Digital / Hard / Medium / Sinoid / Soft

The “Saturator – Default” can choose between the different saturation types except for “waveshaping”, which has its own default due to more complex controls.

Spectrum Dephaultz – Basic (maximum efficiency) / High Frequency / Pitch / Peaks HQ / RMS HQ

The “Basic” Spectrum is set to maximum efficieny for multiple instances… go ahead and throw one on every track. The “High Frequency” and “HQ” Spectrums are set to maximum accuracy for those specific functions and therefore ideal for precision monitoring.

Vocoder Dephaultz – External (make sure to set the sidechain source) / Noise / Pitch-Tracking (best with monophonic melodics) / Self.

Vinyl Distortion Dephaultz – Dubplate / Record

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.
