Time for a new free Ableton Rack – SynthPad Tape

July 6, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Free Ableton Instrument #59: SynthPad Tape. This is an Ableton Live Instrument Rack created by sampling Big Robot Studio’s SynthPad app. The Sample was originally recorded to my Tascam Reel To Reel Machine, which gives it some analog warmth, and then it was collected into an Ableton Instrument. From there it is coupled with a dirty sine wave synth and plenty of effects. Enjoy!

Here’s what AfroDJMac has to tell us about his new rack:

“My main goal was to create an imperfect instrument, that is still completely usable, but has some character.  The sample I chose isn’t the cleanest one, but it sounds nice looped.  I added some super subtle modulation to the pitch to make it sound a bit more like an analog synth.  These days, music is so perfectly in tune that it can take away from the character of the instruments.  I think it is worth playing around with the tuning of your soft synths to emulate the subtle intonation imperfections found in real instruments and hardware synths.  It gives the music a more “alive” feeling and can add tremendous character and charm.  So this particular synth is not perfectly in tune but it won’t clash with instruments that are.  Also, pulling the sample from the tape machine adds some warmth to the sound as well.”
