Ableton is encouraging Live 10 users to “take it back to the old school” with a free Live pack rife with vintage synth sounds. All Live 10 owners will be able to choose from a pack inventory of pads, bass, leads, and keys, each of which come complete with eight macros for further sound sharpening. Each of the samples derive from classic synths like Minimoog, Oberheim OB-X, Juno-106, and Korg Polysix. As per Ableton, the vintage pack touts a sound that is altogether “rawer and more digital” than the very same sounds would be when used in tandem with traditional samplers.

Designed by Huston Singletary, the pack also includes two drum kits, three demo songs, and 150 MIDI clips. Live 10 users can see how Singletary implements the pack’s sounds in the demos recently published to Singletary’s Instagram account (@huston.singletary). The vintage sounds pack is now live and available to all Live 10 users.

Premiere: Jeremy Olander – Shuttle (King Unique ’94 Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

King Unique

King Unique sought to turn back the clock for a nostalgia-fueled re-work to Jeremy Olander‘s “Shuttle,” and it is safe to say that he succeeded in his mission to do so.

Like a piece labeled “’94 Remix” might imply, this interpretation of “Shuttle” is rife with influences from the decade. The original track’s touching progression is doused in punchy, classically-inspired percussion and dramatic builds that develop across a multitude of soundscapes. Tying together the overall effect, King Unique adds nostalgic filtering and laces the finished product with subtle guitar flutters — vintage indeed. Despite its classic elements, however, the piece still fits perfectly into the present, and makes for a well-rounded take on Jeremy Olander’s beloved single.

“Shuttle (King Unique ’94 Remix)” will be released on February 23. Pre-order a copy here.
