Ableton pack 004 features a few recordings of percussionist Dave Insua Cao‘s Boomwhack selection. Dave helped me sample loads of percussive goodies from his studio, which are now available as Ableton Live packs.
I’ve put the Boomwhacka samples into Ableton’s sampler and created a simple instrument. Each one shot can be played dry or you can add some sonic flavour using the effect rack. The effects in this rack are made up of resonators, phaser, delay and two filters. This really allows for some quirky sound design and the potential for interesting melodic sequences to be made. I also included an arpeggiator to really increase the Boomwhackas’ versatility.
Give it a go – you might be surprised how good this can sound for basslines!
The download file contains an Ableton Live pack file which includes an Ableton Instrument Rack and a sample folder.
