Guitar Feedback Used To Create Ableton Instrument

AfroDJMac releases Free Weekly Ableton Live Rack #15: Fender Feedback      07/07/11

Here's what AfroDJMac has to say...
One of my favorite sounds is that of a distorted electric guitar as it begins to screech into blazing feedback. It's very unpredictable, wild, and difficult to control. The overtones and harmonics it creates are hard to replicate with any other instrument. For this weeks Ableton Live Rack installment, I sampled some feedback from my Fender Mustang and Fender Jag-Stang coming out of my sea-foam green Fender Hot Rod Deluxe.
Sometimes the results are surprising when you create a sampled instrument, and this is one of those unexpected outcomes. The resulting instrument sounds more like a vintage keyboard with some rich harmonic content than a screeching guitar. Also, the actual guitar used makes quite a big difference as well, so I've include two racks this week, one created with the Mustang and one with the Jag-Stang. I added effects that I thought were useful to the sounds, Lo-pass Filter, Tremolo, Vibrato, Chorus, Reverb, Flanger, and just to dirty it up a bit, Vinyl distortion, which can be mix to taste. Enjoy, and as always, send along word of any music you create with this or any of these racks.
