Description

Inspired Rave Stabs is an Ableton Live Pack that started out as a trip down memory lane. We wanted to explore what it was like to create rave stabs using old techniques and gear, but also utilise the latest features of Ableton Live 11!

Back in the 90s, we sampled chords from digital sound modules into many of the different samplers available at the time, like the infamous Roland W30, various Akai and Emu samplers, and the lesser-known Casio FZ1. 

When one-shot samples are mapped across the keyboard without any form of warping, the duration changes and, in turn, the pitch; for example, the sample’s duration is shorter the higher up the key-range, thus higher in pitch. The duration is longer, lower down the key-range, therefore lower in pitch. As a result, a distinct character to the sound emerges when riffs are played within two octaves. 

Another popular technique in the 1990s was to tune the oscillators of analog synths to different intervals creating chords. These sounds were sampled as one-shots and mapped across a key-range. The same pitch characteristics were prevalent due to the change in duration, adding to the distinct sound and era. 

The Inspired Rave Stabs pack has been put together by sampling chords created from tuned analog synth oscillators, stacked intervals from classic 90s digital sound modules and the the tonal character of the Roland W30 and Akai S3000. 

All samples are un-warped to retain the classic pitch nuances of the era. Each rack has been carefully put together exposing useful macros and taking advantage of macro variations giving a minimum of 4 variations per rack. Within this pack there are over 400 variations of stab sounds to keep you gurning to the early hours.

DEVELOPER

ESL

Euphony Sound Labs was set up during the mid 90s rave scene initially as a production studio to support the first electronic music project of producer Michael Greig.

Shortly after opening it transformed into a commercial recording studio supporting the local music scene in Dundee, Scotland. The studio looked after musicians and producers from many different genres of music from Indie to Hardcore Techno.
