- As with any new library, keep the volumes low while you get to know the library.
- Go deep. Spend quality time with each instrument.
- Experiment with blending macro levels. For example one parameter may activate or attenuate an affect and a second parameter may futher alter the effect. In this case I've labelled the first paramter with a trailing ">>".
- Some parameters are dependent on certain frequencies. If you don't hear a change in the sound, try playing on a different octave or changing the filter frequency.
- Instruments are generally quite expressive and change radically from high to low octaves so explore the full range of the keyboard
- While playing up and down the keyboard try using different velocities and wit aftertouch.
- Sometimes, a parameter change won't be heard till you re-trigger a note.
Color Coding Standard
Each instrument is placed in a rack and programmed to take advantage of Ableton 8 performance macro knobs. Labels for knobs are color coded to help you quickly identify the class of modulation. For example, macro knobs that control Filter and Resonance (Q) will be labeled Green.
Embeded Description and Perfomance Notes
Each rack contains description and performance notes. Just mouse-over the title bar of the rack device to see the notes.
