Unusual Percussion

AfroDJMac releases a free Ableton Live Pack featuring percussive sounds that can all be infinitely mangled      20/02/12
AfroDJMac tells us that his latest free Ableton Live Pack is a collection of some unusual sounds re-imagined in a percussive way... "I have a feeling I will be doing more of this type of thing in the coming weeks, because my urge to explore the depths of what can be used for drum sounds has not been satisfied. If anything I think it has been magnified.
For this week, I collected sounds from some interesting sources and then put them into an Ableton drum rack. Then I coupled them with effects that will take them further into the obscure. In this rack you will hear keyboard keys, long cardboard tubes, plastic objects being hit, vinyl crackles, glitchy noises created with Ableton's Operator synth, a lighter, and a couple other miscellaneous things that are escaping my memory at this moment. All in all, it's 126 different percussive sounds. And they can all be mangled in infinite ways..."
