Francis Preve has released a free instrument for Ableton Live, based on Dave Smith’s new Prophet 12 synthesizer.
Here’s what Preve has to say about the free Live instrument:
Dave Smith’s Prophet 12 is one of the most buzzworthy keyboards of 2013. It’s arguably the deepest analog-hybrid polysynth ever released – and since all of my previous packs have used single note samples, I decided to create a pack entirely from chord stabs.

Long-term friends Machinedrum and Lando hit the studio together for the first time and explore Push.While Machinedrum had been using Push since the beta period, Lando was new to the instrument.Coming from a studio full of vintage and boutique analog equipment, Push was a snug fit with Lando’s hands-on method of production.
The look-ahead looper is a mythical device which allows for incredible looping creativity. With a REGULAR LOOPER, you press “loop” and then you play something brilliant. That’s stressful and error-prone. With a LOOK-AHEAD LOOPER, you play something brilliant and then hit the loop button. Or you can wait. The looper is always ready to loop the last 2 bars (or 4, or 8, or whatever you’ve set up).
In this video, Dan Rosenstark, Author & CEO of MIDI Designer, shows you how to set up the simplest kind of look-ahead looper in Ableton Live. This is the first video on Look-Ahead Loopers… there are more complex variations to come.

Cluster Sound has released Sigman, a multi-sample Live Pack based on the vintage Korg Sigma. Sigman is a multi-sample Live Pack primarily designed for raw analog basses & leads.
In the late 70′s Korg experimented with a machine for players looking for a simpler alternative to knobby synthesizers. The result was the Sigma, a bi-timbric semi-preset synth with rocker-tabs, micro knobs and two X-Y joystic controls. The Korg Sigma is based on 19 VCOs grouped in two discrete sections (Synthe and Instrument) that can be cross-modulated and filtered with a LP/HP Filter. Each VCO is equipped with a single dedicated control including Korg35 filter circuits for shaping the sounds.
Sigman is based on 30 multi-sample recordings obtained by sampling the VCO presets and custom cross-modulated sounds. Sigman delivers 90 inspiring and meticulously crafted Live Racks with dedicated macro controls, part of which simulate the ring-modulator, the joystic filter and the single VCO knobs of the original Sigma.

This is a free Ableton Live Pack consisting of 2 instrument racks created from samples of the Casio CT-101 vintage synthesizer.

The CasioTone 101 (CT-101) is a VERY basic analog synth from Casio circa 1981. The keyboard has 49 full-size keys and is finished in satin black painted metal, has wooden end-cheeks and a wood grain finish underneath the front of the keys. It gives your studio a good analog/vintage feel. Most sounds are very basic and fairly unusable. However, its organ tones are pretty good as well as its ‘Cosmic Tone’ patch, which uses two oscillators tuned an octave apart, and as the keys are held down, the sound drops an octave as oscillator 1 fades up, and oscillator 2 fades down.
Free Ableton Live Pack #95 features samples of the Roland Juno 106. Those samples were constructed into an Ableton Live instrument rack to create a lush beautifully vintage sounding pad.
