A few months ago, I released a remix album where a whole slew of amazing artists remixed my 2012 album 'We Are But Hunks Of Wood'. Whilst bouncing down all the different stems from the original record for other producers to remix, my initial thought was to eventually make these available for anyone to remix. However, i wanted to offer something that was more useable than plain flat audio files which restrict both tempo and key used (Although that often is part of the appeal of remixing. Limitation can be a good thing in electronic music). Eventually, my keen interest in sound design led me to produce an Ableton live pack of several of the sounds i used making 'We Are But Hunks of Wood' in the form of over 40 presets that can be played chromatically across a keyboard. It's a 400mb mixed bag of synth pads, basses, tuned percussions and drum racks. Now anyone can re-appropriate these sounds and take them in any musical direction they want. Head over to ableton's website to download the pack:
This pack is only compatible in Live 9, but only uses the basic Live instruments and effects, enabling any user Live 9 user to use them.
