Here’s a highlight of some my favorites from the set…
Noisify: adds source-reactive noise and degrades signal
FonePhilter: retro telephone tone with signal overdrive
DownFilter Dirty: performance sweep utilizing Live’s new analog filter functionality
GrainPitch Up: crude realtime pitch shifter
Pianosator: “piano reverb” of chromatic resonances
BassCream: velvety bass guitar process based on a classic pro studio workflow
Shredder: scorching tone for hard rock/heavy metal lead guitar, easy-peasy
Characterizer: adds mid-range richness and warmth
De-Essify: de-esser which works like magic
JuiceSnapper: aux buss finalizer / transient enhancer
SuperUltraMega: Makes. Stuff. Louder.
Chube: chorus to sound like going through a metal tube
Breepitate: glitchy fun
BrownLoop: loop and shift a clip down to half speed
SeaShore: transform any audio into a pleasing surf wave
PongFreez: more glitchy fun

Useful for when you want to do things like

Ionic Rubix transparent w shadow

 

Ionic FX

The IonicFX3 pack is self-installing, meaning all you have to do is double-click it once and say yes to a couple of dialogue boxes for all devices to appear, categorized, in your core library.
Includes the following devices:

Ionic Filter
A low-cut filter coupled with a high-shelf filter, which dynamically react to the input characteristics and to each other for organic attenuation.
Ionic DeNoise
A multiband denoiser which reacts to the input signal in an attempt to carefully preserve the original tone.
AI Buss Glue
Go-to buss compressor with parameters reacting to both input and output signals in realtime, in order to maximize its usefulness moment-to-moment in response to dynamic material.
AI Track Comp
Well-behaved channel compressor with parameters reacting to both input and output signals in realtime, enhancing makeup gain automatically while setting the dynamic threshold intelligently.
Anionic Console
An old-school vibe channel strip, meant for adding impact and color.
Bright Valley Compressor
A "mid-side serial mastering compressor" taking its routing configuration inspiration from a famous hardware mastering compressor but having its own distinct sound, this is actually 4 compressors: 2 in series each on the center and side channels.
Exbandurator
A "parallel bandpass expander-saturator", it's a super-useful, supremely easy to use tool to add a specific color to an audio source while otherwise leaving it intact.
Ionic Bass Strip
A channel strip specially calibrated for use on bass guitar and bass synth instruments, with ai-reactive self-leveling tone stack pots, parallel routing, and custom waveshape growl.
Ionic Melody Strip
A channel strip specially calibrated for use on virtually any instrument besides bass, with ai-reactive compander to mold dynamics, sensual tone-shaping controls, and sleek width enhancement.
Ionic Space
Mid-side reverb + delay which reacts dynamically to bloom during softer moments, curtailing itself during transients to preserve natural clarity.
Ionic Tracking
Place on an input channel during tracking to assist with the performer's monitoring. This allows for fine-tuning the sound in their ear for a more pleasurable recording experience.

2 ~ NEW free pack available via AfroDJMac: Vinyl Snackler
“Instrument with 128 Unique Analog Vinyl Noise Loop Samples.”

This is a sampler instrument which is designed to play a loop of background vinyl noise which you can select from 128 unique samples, each with their own character. Some of the samples are primarily background hiss, but some also have pops, clicks, and other artifacts which can be useful as percussion elements. Big thanks to the one and only AfroDJMac for hosting this device.

PS…. if you are not already a member of the ADM Music Production Club, then you are missing out on a crazy-affordable source of insanely cool, high-quality, monthly awesome stuff delivered to your face. If you are interested in steadily building up your ableton library full of production and performance assets to be able to more quickly dive in to making your own bizarre unique sounds and developing your own twisted techniques, this is one of the most practical possible methods you can consider, especially if you’re a fan of the more odd and innovative side of things (which, if you’re reading this here now, i’m guessing you probably are).

 

3 ~ NEW free pack available via SideBrain: PK Rocket Droner
“Self-Mutating Texture Drone Synth”

(It’s free! Go grab it!!)

An epic studio jam between Phat Kid, KdoubleU, and myself was recorded after a show on March 20th, 2015 (night of the “super moon”), which Phat Kid traveled from New Mexico to play at. We captured a range of timbres from his Waldorf Rocket synth, routed through tasty analog gear on the input line.

Huge thanks to SideBrain for hosting this device! Check out the site for more ableton grooviness to geek out on and grab.
Be sure to check out Phat Kid’s Music on Bandcamp
This is some of my favorite music ever, and not just because i know him personally. It is truly tasty. He primarily uses Renoise to compose which is intriguing of itself.

This is the first of various “PK Rocket” instruments which will be coming out.
This instrument is organic, giving you slightly different results every time you press a key, and morphing randomly as a key is held. It is great for trippy, droning textures. It is encouraged to automate and process it to the moon and back. Just have fun.

 

Free LANDR “Tone Sculptors” Ableton Live pack + other nifty stuff

I recently helped tweak and finalize a set of free audio effect racks in collaboration with online mastering service LANDR.
These are three effect racks suited for quick and easy “tone sculpting” of parts which are centered on low, mid, or high frequency ranges.

Check out the story about it and find download links here: www.ableton.com/en/blog/free-landr-tone-sculptors/
tone sculptors ableton

If you’ve never used LANDR, i highly recommend it as a way to test your mixes. Finish a mix and send it off to LANDR… listen to the master they send back to you, hear problems more clearly, and then go back to your mix and fix. It’s also a great way to get a new track ready for live performance before it has been sent off for professional mastering or officially released.

Also, check out the new ARCHIPEL ELEMENTS live pack, with drum racks featuring juicy recorded samples ranging in the 4 elements – earth, water, air and fire. Great material for sound design and experimental composition.

ALSO be on the lookout for the epic “DynaMixing Three” Live pack which will be releasing at isotonik studios this friday. This pack includes some of the most insane and advanced devices yet developed by PerforModule, featuring envelope followers which “automagically” adjust certain parameters in response to input characteristics. Some of these effects are “secret weapons” for sublime mixing and mastering solutions.
Check out the video overview for “DynaMixing Three” HERE.

(There is EVEN MORE incredible stuff going on behind the scenes which you will find out about soon.) 

P.S. Bonus shoutout to AFRODJMAC for being super groovy. You should totally join the afrodjmac music production club, because i said so. And because it is very affordable, and awesome.

Enjoy!
