Snake Drum Synth for Ableton Live - Free                          14th January 2012

AfroDJMac here writing with word of my latest free weekly Ableton Live Rack.

It was created with an instrument I believe to be called a snake drum (at least that's what it says on the bottom of it!)  Basically it's a hollow wooden box with slots cut into it, which are hit with a mallet to create a musical tone.  The sound is similar to a marimba.  I've sampled it and stretched out across the keyboard, expanding its playability from its original six notes.  Being that the samples are stretched to the extreme at the higher and lower octaves, some interestingly unexpected things happen to the sound.  Expect some surprisingly deep and heavy sub bass sounds  and odd glitchy chirps at the higher octaves.  As usual, I have added some audio effects to further alter the capabilities of this sound. 

 

Check out the video, all the sounds you hear are made with this instrument.  I included the clips I created in the download so you can mess around with them for yourself.  Maybe you might even do your own remix and send it my way.
