Noises, Risers, Swooshes

AfroDJmac releases free weekly Ableton Live Rack #14      01/07/11
AfroDJmac has released free weekly Ableton Live Rack #14: Noises, Risers, Swooshes. Here's what he has to say about it...
So much of our enjoyment in life relies on tension and release, and music is no different. This weeks free Ableton Live Rack is designed to help build that tension and release in your music. I've created a bunch of white noise risers and fallers, sampled some choice sounds from old video games, and created synths that climb and fall many octaves over time. Many of these sounds have been staples of dance and electronica for years, but more and more, as genres of music mix together, I find these sounds as useful in rock music as they are in anything else. Experiment with them. Use them to alert the listener to changes that are approaching, and to smooth out transitions.
Many of these sounds are the exact ones I use in my live performances, and they can work wonders whether entering or leaving a chorus, switching to a new song, or just as something to get the audience to make some noise of their own. I've added some effects that lend themselves nicely to all this swooshing around. There's Flanger, Phaser, Reverb, Delay, AutoPan, Bit Crusher and a Beat Repeat that allows you to further destroy the sound. In the video, I explain how it all works and demonstrate some ways to (over)use the AfroDJMac Noises, Risers, Swooshes Rack. Use and abuse; enjoy and share.
