Best places to find free (and numerous?) Ableton 8 presets?

Post by infiniteB » Fri Sep 03, 2010 11:12 pm

I need (as many as possible) free presets for Instruments, FX, etc... I own Live 8, not Live 8 Suite... any suggestions?

free presets for what exactly ?

Ableton themselves have offered a couple of packs (in conjunction with other producers etc) for Live 8 which work in Simpler etc. Have you downloaded those ? Obviously Max For Live packs (unless you buy M4L) and Samplification (a pack for the add on or Suite instrument Sampler) won't work unless you get those products.

http://www.ableton.com/livepacks go here and you should be able to download most of this stuff if you haven't already.

You can use any .wav or .aiff sample in Simpler, one shots or multisamples, or bring one shot drum sounds into drum racks (which is a basically a rack of simplers underneath the GUI). There are LOADS of free samples and sounds in .wav or .aiff on the net, http://freesound.org is a good place to look for FREE sounds you can use (either as pure audio clips, or via Simpler)

maybe learn some basic synthesis and create the sounds you are after?

I am simply looking at presets as a tool, a quick possibility or beginning. I have been making music for a while, and understand synthesis, etc... I just see anything as possible inspiration, including device/synth pesets
