Ableton’s new beatmaking kit ‘Beat Tools’ offers you amazing new sounds
With more than 120 Drum and Instrument Racks, over 180 loops for slicing, tweakable effects chains and more, Beat Tools has all the sounds you need for hands-on beatmaking – especially with Push.
Developed by a team of producers and sound designers including Sound Oracle, Mic Checkmate and Michele Darling, this collection of sounds puts everything you need for making beats in one place. Drum Racks are packed with percussive hits, bass and melodic samples so you can work on tight-knit ideas for groove and melody together. And more than 100 Instrument Racks offer a huge sound palette to create a range of moods – from weighty bass and smooth electric pianos, to icy pads and sharp leads.
Plus there are 182 audio loops for chopping up and creating new grooves and melodies, as well as almost 100 MIDI clips for reworking into your own beats, and showing you what the kits can do.
Beatmaking flow with Push
The Pack is set up for sparking ideas and keeping you in your flow – especially with Push. Drum kits and Instrument Racks come with processing and effects chains that sound great right off the bat. Eight macros are carefully set up for creative tweaking and sound design directly from Push; take your bass booms from pure to gritty in just a few tweaks. Instruments also make use of expressive Push features like pad aftertouch.
