Here’s a nice treat from AfroDJMac featuring samples from the Minibrute, details below:
This free Ableton Live Pack features drum sounds created from samples of the Arturia MiniBrute. More specifically, I resampled sounds from the MegaBrute Collection for Ableton Live ( http://afrodjmac.com/2012/11/07/megabrute-ableton-live-pack/ ) and created some odd and unique drum samples. From there I organized them into Ableton’s drum rack and added various effects. All in all it is 24 different drum sounds all created from the analog beauty that is the Arturia Mini Brute!

AfroDJMac’s Free Ableton Live Pack #67: Gated Reverb! This Ableton Live FX rack will give you that 1980s gated reverb sound for your drums or any instrument you apply it to. It’s a free download!

The 1980s brought us some pretty cool production techniques. I often try to emulate them in Ableton. One of the more timestamped effects is gated reverb. Producers wanted huge drum sounds, but didn’t want the drums washed out in reverb. The solution was found by placing a gate after the reverb. This will suddenly silence the reverb once it drops to a certain level. Think Phil Collins’ “Coming in the Air Tonight.” If you have ever wanted your drums to sound like they were being played by Godzilla in the Grand Canyon, this is the technique for you.
I found myself looking for those 80s drum sounds and created an Ableton Live effect rack called the AfroDJMac Gated Reverb Rack. It’s a pretty simple but very useful effect rack. It gives you control over various reverb parameters and various gate parameters. Together you should be able to dial in the exact gated reverb sound you are going for.
