Guitar introduces the sounds from a stock acoustic guitar with 3 steel and 3 nylon strings.
The instrument´s recordings were taken from two different microphone positions and are captured to phase-aligned dual-mono samples.
So each preset of the Live Pack has a dedicated macro control for blending between these mic positions.
Guitar includes 2 guitar presets, 3 bass presets, a drum machine with hits and scrapes from the guitar body plus a handful of processings and adaptions of the original sounds.
Computer Noises is based on a wide palette of noises that computers of the past decades emit when booting, reading from their CD-ROM drives or accessing a hard disk.
The library splits into 2 main categories - mono files and dual-channel files where these presets have a dedicated crossfade macro that blends from left to right while passing the stereo stage.
The main categories are further organised in different sceneries like booting computers, blower fans, read/write access of floppies, CD-ROMs or hard drives.
Oddities like hum, buzz and all kinds of crosstalks where used for the creation of some spacey sound effects.
The full-lenth stems plus additional bonus material of each computer that made its way into this library are available as separate WAV-file package.

Detunized Piano translates the spirit of a pretty old and battered Upright Piano into digital realms. Hosted in a small venue right beside an auto shop this particular Piano has undergone numerous Jazz and Blues sessions throughout the decades.
The Live Pack delivers the multi-sampled and velocity-layered Piano with separately adjustable sustain and release levels plus 7 additional instruments that push the classic piano sound far beyond the original.
• Arper adds some heavenly arpeggios
• Damped sounds like a huge piano behind a wall
• Looped introduces random patterns during performance
• Morph combines formant-shifting with interesting side-noises
• Piano is the pure velocity-layered piano sound
• Peak brings in the taste of a prepared piano
• Remember 2133 can be tweaked from Grand to Honky Tonk
• Synth is a polyphonic stereo synthesizer
HumBuzz Live Pack is a versatile collection of 86 surprising Ableton Racks.
The source material was created by capturing the electromagnetic fields emited by fridges, microwaves, boilers, cellphones, TVs and computer components.
Like all modern electronics these devices produce a complex mixture of noises that cover wide frequency ranges. But surprisingly often one can find tonal elements that fit into usefull scales.
Therefore HumBuzz not only contains hum and buzz but also thick pads, leads, bells and keys that do not deny it´s origin but are perfect in tune.
Also included are many start-up and boot noises applicable for event-driven foleys, scoring or interface design.

HumBuzz Universal is a versatile collection 113 wav files with a length from 7 to 27 seconds.
The files were created by capturing the electromagnetic fields of fridges, microwaves, boilers, cellphones, TVs and computers.
These devices emit a complex mixture of noises that often cover huge frequency ranges and therefore offer an inspiring resource for event-driven foleys, scoring or interface design.
Surprisingly many of the sounds contain strong tonal elements that can be filtered out and pitched into usefull scales.
So even tuned instruments are just some tiny tweaks away.

Noises, Rumble, Hum & Hiss derived from vintage newsreels
Noises library presents a collection of unwanted Noises, Rumbles, Hums & Crackles that got collected when digging through copies of newsreels from the the 40ies and 50ies of the last century. Whenever such a newsreel starts or ends a lot of sidenoises occur and each one plays another pattern of mysterious sounds.
Noises library contains more than 150 samples that are arranged in 10 categories.
