For this Live Pack, I have included 3 of my all-time favorite Racks.
1. The Arp_Chord. This rack is a great bassline starter. Put it in front of any virtual instrument and turn the Macros. Switch through Arpeggio modes, Key Signatures, and Transpositions.
2. The Chord_Switcher. Another MIDI Effect Rack, this time it’s embedded into the Arp_Chord. You can either use it on it’s own, or run the Arp_Chord to control it’s parameters. On it’s own, it’s a major/minor triad switcher.. great for momentary transpositions from Major to Minor. Customize this one to find the perfect combination of harmonies!
3. The 303_Starter. This Instrument Rack holds simply 3 devices; The Operator, the Compressor, and the beloved Saturator. The Operator is employing only 2 oscillators and a nicely driven and enveloped Low Pass filter. This emulates the classic “303 bassline” sound quite nicely. Make it pump by selecting a Side Chain modulation source to the Compressor, and then just let the Saturator sit there and do what it does best.. *You will need to create your own Modulation Source for this configuration. Might I suggest the FM Kick Starter?
*Remember, with all of these Live Packs, you will want to open their Live Sets, and then SAVE each rack into your library. Someday I will be granted the magical ability to create Live Packs that auto-populate your libraries. In the meantime.. Don’t forget this step!
