I previously had posted about a couple of sample sets I made by banging on stuff in the basement hallway, (Hallway 1 and Hallway 2) but today I went through the steps to package them as an Ableton Live ALP file.
These are Sampler presets, so I don’t know if you can load them if you don’t have the Sampler License, or rather I don’t know what will happen if you try. But you can always use the original zip files and load the samples wherever you like. Just click through above to the original posts.
Ableton Live Hallway Live Pack
Guy taps and bangs on stuff in his laundry room, releases sample set.
It’s worth listening to the audio examples. It sounds exactly like you’d imagine — washing machines getting tapped, thumped and slammed. I sampled the water sloshing in my washer years ago for a track; this is precisely the sort of thing you should be doing for yourself, not buying a sample set.
Though I wish this guy well. Everything sounds very well recorded and he spent extra time with Kontakt programming to make them cool. But really, isn’t it a REQUIREMENT that you sample junk around your house for yourself?
In that unwritten book of rules for electronic musicians, that is!
The percussion is all banging stuff in my office with a sharpie, a bottle opener, and my knuckles. Including banging on the Presonus preamp that I was using at the time, a can of compressed air, etc.
Nothing to do with the television show, though I do enjoy it. Unless you see it as an auditory representation of the soul-killing ennui of cubicle life.
The chaotic higher synth sound is the Mopho, bass sound is Ableton’s Analog….
