what can i say, i just paid $44 CAD for presets i could have made myself (not really) and i love it! i consider the covert operators to be the worlds foremost authority on ableton live! already bought covert seq and now this. and will buy whatever else u guys put out, cuz u deserve the support... I wonder if u actually have time to make music??? if so where can i hear some of it :P

i shoulda read closer, cuz i thought it was just presets but was pleasantly surprised by all the live clips i found in library folder later on :oops:

Thanks for the kind words man.
I hope the Live clips come in handy. It is still one of Live's most underappreciated features :D
They're the next best thing since samples. Yet most users don't even realize the potential...
I guess The Covert Operators are in the small group of people who still believe Live is a "Live sequencing instrument" instead of a "DAW clone" :wink:

Happy Newyear to everybody.
2007 will be a fun year to be a Live user :D

I know this is a pretty damn vague, subjective question, but what sort of sounds are in the preset pack? Atmospheric synth sounds? Lead/pad/brass/normal-FM-stuff? Presets that sound like normal instruments?

What sort of music are you guys using these for?

All of the above.

You can use these for any kind of music, but of course, the futuristic sounds easy fit into techno, house, electro, etc. Then again, they can easily fit into psychedelic rock, or even movie sounds (although probably not Lord of the Rings, more like Bladerunner).

One of the best things about this soundset is the extensive Macro mapping. You can turn one knob and have a totally different sound with a different application.

Gentle bump.

Feel free to post any creations you like to share that are made with these sounds.

I'm working on a hard trance anthem with some surgical toolz, so I'll post it when done. You'll either be impressed or offended :)

Only 1 way to find out :D
I never considered the possibility of offensive trance. I'd like to hear that!

Given that my new laptop is not viable, and that I'll be without a production machine for a week, don't hold your breath, and don't expect a happy camper for about a week. In fact, you should all go fuck yourselves right now.

That's fucked up man... what happened?

I suggest you go on a bender, tell the wife and kid you're going on a business trip. Check into a sleezy hotel for a week, live on speedballs and alcohol and trash the place. Here's Adonis' credit card number VISA 8617 4925 4665 7164 07/07 exp date, code on the back is 614.

No matter what happens, you can feel better knowing that you're not me.
