Sound Alchemy w/ Ableton Live Pt 3: Advanced Instrument Racks – Storm

This tutorial was completed around a week before Hurricane Sandy reached the US. As someone who was personally affected by Hurricane Sandy in a big way, I can only state the obvious, that there’s nothing more humbling than nature. – Raz Mesinai

We hope that help comes to those who need it the most as soon as possible. Please read: Hurricane Sandy Relief Info.

We recently kicked off a new video tutorial series called Sound Alchemy with Ableton Live featuring Dubspot instructor, composer and producer Raz Mesinai. In this series, Raz creates Effect and Instrument Racks in Ableton Live, taking inspiration from natural sonic phenomena. If you missed the previous episodes of Sound Alchemy, here’s part 1 and part 2. In the third installment of Sound Alchemy, Raz utilizes Ableton’s versatile Analog synthesizer to create the sound of an approaching storm.
