This week’s free Ableton Live Pack comes from samples of an old Casio MT-68 keyboard sent to me by my lifelong friend Mike Longo. One of my favorite things about this instrument and is how the sound changes over time. We set the samples to play normally, then to loop backwards and forwards, and every time it loops some cool things happen to the sound, i.e. glitches, pops, twists, etc.
It gives the synth an organic movement that you don’t get with the original. We put controls for Sampler’s FM Osc, and moving those knobs while playing will add all kinds of layers of goodness to your sound. Crank the FM Osc Type and FM Osc Volume knobs to the max and you in effect have a white noise generator.
