A late christmas present

In ableton, dubstep, link on December 30, 2010 at 16:23

Hello! The christmas holidays are over. Jim Hurley has made us a late christmas present. The exciting live livepack is called overload.  Surprisingly, there is no page about the livepack. I just can offer you the download links for Abelton Live 7 and Live 8.

A late christmas present

After installation you can find the devices in your lives device browser under:

  • Instruments/Instrument Rack/-Jim Hurley-/Overload
  • Audio Effects/Audio Effects Racks/-Jim Hurley-/Overload
  • MIDI Effetcs/Midi Effect Rack/-Jim Hurley-/Overload

But what do the instruments sound like? I would call them experimental, atmospherical and dark. So a good choice for making dubstep. Check out my sound example to gain your own impression.

For my mind the instruments stereo effects are a bit over the top. So I used the Abelton’s Utility effect to reduce the influence. Unfortunately, these instruments stresses your CPU. 60 percent CPU usage is too much. I propose you record a audio clip to use it.

That’s all for 2010. I wish you a happy new year.

Alexander
