How to build your own Soundpacks in Ableton – with Mad Zach


LoopTV show this great promo tutorial from DJ Tech Tools Ableton Tech guru Mad Zach on how to make your own sound packs in Ableton.  In this overview video Zach goes through what areas he covers in his 6 part tutorial series, covering everything from building dynamic drums sets, engineering melodies, sound design, and creating the modern sub bass.

If you’ve been a follower of DJ Tech Tools Mad Zach’s weekly sound packs for Ableton, then you’ll know how fun and incredibly funky these 4X4 grid playgrounds can be.  Anyone with Ableton Live and a little creativity can make their own sound pack by following his extensive one hour tutorial.

The full 60 minute tutorial goes deep into every detail of the sound pack creation through six distinct lessons:

  1. Crafting the Beat: techniques for creating more dynamic drums for live performance — from scratch!
  2. Setting The Mood: creating pads and atmospheres, including starting from a vinyl sample and turning it into emotionally driven sounds that will act as the hook and set the vibe of the track.
  3. Melody of One: one note melodies re-envisioned, which can be easily played using one button while still remaining expressive and diverse
  4. Risers 101: Creating Builds To Fit The Pack: creating interesting risers out of samples you already have on hand for buildups, breakdowns, transitions, and more.
  5. Bass Face: Addressing The Modern Sub: How to use MIDI clips, modifiers, and clever patching to create a dope bassline that can be played live
  6. GTFO: The Sounds, The Magic — adding flair to a performance soundpack, including making cool sounds using the simple delay, and recording some vocal samples that take the pack up a notch.
