Swayzak's Free Ableton Live Pack

Stretch, Chop, Combine, Resample      07/08/09

UK electronia artists Swayzak have made an free Ableton Live set for you to download.

In the video above, the duo talks a bit about how they use Live, and then dig into the contents of the free pack.

Here's what they have to say about the pack:

We take a fairly unstructured path to making a Live Set. Clips are grouped by type (beats, bass, percussion etc) but we don't usually split a track into stems in order to replay it. We assign key commands to mute each track plus key commands which turn the global effects on and off (on the master channel). We have two sends (reverb and delay); this provides some space and, of course, "dubbiness." It's important to really know all the sounds—we usually go through and listen to each one on solo during preparation for a gig (we also delete or transform them if they are boring).

The Swayzak Live Pack contains 2 Live Sets: "Swayset Live" and "Swayset Suite". The Suite version uses Operator, the Live version has the Operator tracks rendered as audio.

The Swayzak Live Pack is a Live project—it does NOT install into the Library, but saves into a separate folder.

Swayzak adds:

Live is an extraordinarily powerful tool, so use it in as many ways as you can think of. Have fun!
