Electronic Music discussion: livepacks - use them?
Written November 25 2011 , Tags: livepack, drumrack, samplepack, ballsack
been meaning to make a livepack for ages, few instrument racks with samples loaded into drum racks from my library - things i've recorded/processed (bent drum machines, field recordings, digital noise etc)
perhaps with some audio effects racks for performance and studio use thrown in or some custom M4L Devices.
do live users even bother with livepacks? i barely use any of the ones i've installed, especially the ones i've d/L'd from the ableton site.
mostly interested in releasing a free samplepack of my own, but a folder of sounds is kind of dull. and i like the idea of being able to set up macro knobs/chains and effects so the pack is more of an instrument..
same question, but in regard to NI Kontakt or other 3rd party samplers..
In general I never use the presets I download. I just tend to feel weird using a patch that someone else created. Usually I'm stubborn and just use my own even if they're not as good as the pros. I'm all about making my own presets and saving them for later use though.
however, I am very interested in downloading patches so that I can see how others use the features of a plugin or what have you. Like how you choose to use macros and what not
i'm talking specifically about releasing a sample pack inside a drum rack for live that can be manipulated through macro knobs assigned to specific FX/modulation routing so that the pack is more of an instrument than a folder of one-shots and loops.
same deal with kontakt..
just trying to find out whether people see this sort of thing is appealing/useful or not.
i used to have a paid account with pure magnetik and got an sample pack instrument for ableton every couple of weeks, i don't think i really use any of them. but that mostly comes down to the fact that i barely ever need a "classic analogue synth" "vintage drum machine" or "casio type keyboard" in my tracks.
yea i hear you.. unfortunately the behavior I was referring to extends itself to anything patch-esque. I've got a couple of sample packs that came with patches for samplers or drum racks, and I would always load em up and fart around for a second and then decide that I would rather just throw them in the drum rack myself. I'm not saying this behavior benefits me it's just a habit.
I'm also curious to see what other folks' habits are with this though.
