Serpent Juice is a new FREE audio effect rack, usable with Ableton Live 10 standard+.
Serpent Juice is ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEED* to…
∙Add MEGA SEX APPEAL to your tracks!
∙Drive the dancefloor INSANE with PARTY FEVER!
∙Make you an INFINITELY better producer, INSTANTANEOUSLY!
∙Inject your tracks with a squirt of GNARLY GLOSS, dripping with BITING, VENEMOUS INTENSITY!
∙Elevate your mixes from LAME AS SHIT to FUCKIN’ AMAZING… with NO EFFORT WHATSOEVER!
Drop an instance of Serpent Juice onto each and every track in your mix and on all busses, auxes, master channels, rack chains, auxilliary busses, and sub-prime queue sends, being sure not to skip any inverted bussed mono return auxes. Smack that play button and dare to tell us it doesn’t make everything sound imperceptibly better. Drop extra copies in between each device in chains of plugins or external gear to “squeeze the juice” out of them, subtly enhancing everything in an ultrafantastic manner. Drop extra copies on distinctive tracks you want to highlight with prime impeccability. Show them you care! Drop fewer copies on tracks you care less about. It even sounds badass on the loop send of a flugelhorn amp. YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR TRACKS, DON’T YOU? Just try it out and listen really hard. Unless you’re completely tone-deaf, you’re certain to be utterly flabbergasted* at the results! Seriously the best thing since sliced bagels.
It’s a real Audio Effect Rack!
I was super stoked to be a guest on the AfroDJMac Music Production Podcast. Here’s your chance to hear my actual, real-life voice(!) The sound quality on my side is not wonderful since i was recorded over skype, but whatexer. I had a great time chatting with Brian about random stuff… the conversation decided upon its own meandering path, touching on various topics including the crafting and sharing of Ableton Live racks, VST hoarding, my custom Elemental Mixing template channel strip database, workflow optimization, cassette processing, dynamic contrast between songs on albums, and even the Legend of Zelda (nerds). All in all it was a very invigorating experience and i definitely wouldn’t turn down being a guest again at some point in the future. I myself have quite enjoyed the other podcasts, as they contain a plethora of unconventional tips which are superb for kick-starting the creative juices.
Oh, and we also dropped a couple free audio effect racks for you to grab, including something i brainstormed up quite a while ago and finally implemented perfectly: ‘Dynamic Panning’ (compresses in one direction while it expands in the opposite for source-reactive width modification).
Check out AfroDJMac’s website to access the show.
On a whim, i made a series of effects based on terms from this silly turboencabulator video:
Grab the effects for Ableton Live FREE via isotonik studios.

Update: Huge thanks to Ableton for sharing the Turboencabulation pack for “FreeStuffFriday”! I love you, Ableton! Side-fumbling has indeed been effectively eliminated.
As you may have noticed, i have random ideas all the time. It’s just a matter of finding the physical time to implement them. One idea i had which didn’t take super long to implement was to make effects based on the “Special Zone“ (aka “Special World”, “Star World”) levels from Super Mario World on the Super Nintendo. I grew up playing and loving NES and SNES and so get all predictably nostalgic over such things, as many people in my age range tend to (thus the almost-nauseating overpopularity of 8-bit retro throwback stuff currently).
I tossed the idea of effects based on the “special zone” levels at AfroDJMac to see what he thought, knowing that he’s somewhat into retro video game stuff too.
One thing led to another and another and… well, just that one thing, actually. It was pretty straightforward.
So now you have The Special Zone Pack for Ableton Live. <- Click that to go to AfroDJmac’s site to read about / grab.
Super, super huge thanks to AfroDJMac for hosting this pack! If you browse around his site, you will find a near-limitless supply of amazing, weird goodies.
