Haven't tried it yet as I'm at work. Looking forward to it though.

Actually enjoyed watching the demo vid by Henke... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oz19GGJ0 ... dded#at=11

Gives a few nice ideas to change them. I have a great theoretical knowledge of production, but often have trouble when it comes to making my synths sound more interesting or how I want. It's nice to see some "what I did to make these presets sound how I'd like" videos, and add a few ideas. Might be dragging some sample start points later in a few of my sample packs with slow attacks!

live pack is not broken... but...

I needed to fully reauthorize live after install..

aaaand: many of the analog bass patches (havent tried the other ones yet) make popping sounds when i release the key on the keyboard. (also have the cutoff lowered while pressing keys..) - maybe there will be a fix for that.. =)

edit: nevermind, had to raise the release level;) duh :P

thanks again=)))

Dennis DeSantis not Henke I reckon. :wink: I also liked the vid. There were a couple ideas I hadn't thought of for personalizing sounds for use.

As for authorizing, I think it is just for the pack not Live itself.

Thanks for the freebie Abes!

Really looking forward to playing with this lot. Many Thanks for the freebie!

I purchased TeeBee from Puremagnetik a while back and have been very happy with it. The processor overhead for Puremagnetik's instrument racks compared to other simulations of the 303 is what sold me. So, I had been contemplating getting the whole pack. Thank You for the new synths in my arsenal!
Ableton’s engineers are hard
at work developing code that will allow our software to predict the future, but we don’t
anticipate having this available until at least the next major release.

The awesome bit it that they have finally included all the P-50 Linear partials, so the copy you (and I) paid for is now complete and fully functional

So is this the entire thing we already had, plus all the P-50 partials? I uninstalled it long ago. Like the idea of PM because of the subscription model. They have a great series of Mellotron Livepacks. I had a subscription for a couple of years but just never used the stuff so I cancelled it. Cool that they've done this free content for Live users though, very cool. Might have to check it out.
