3 FREE Instruments VST for Ableton LIVE Lite [FREE LIVE Project]


Hello and welcome to the third episode
of Vogelogue TV’s maximizing Ableton LIVE Lite video series. Today we’re gonna
check out three free VST instruments that will enhance your production
workflow . First VST, Native Instruments Kontakt player, it is a sampler instrument, so basically it hosts high-quality sounds recorded from real instrument.
Some go as detail as note by note recording. Ableton’s stock instrument are more towards modern electronic sound, so Kontakt can come in handy when you’re in need of some
acoustic drum, real bass or even some ethnic traditional instruments. Alright
today we will craft our demo song around a melodic loop from our free loop pack,
links the description below. And it sounds like this. Let’s see how we can
spice it up. This is Kontakt’s user interface. When you
load up different instruments, it will look different. Bear in mind when you download Kontakt, you will need to download the factory library separately. As for my
library here, I own a Maschine, so all the other stuff comes with that hardware. In this
project, we’ve got to Kontakt instrument loaded. One is more of a hip-hop urban
drum kit, and the other is a funk bass. Together it sounds like this. Nothing too complicated yet. Second
VST, KV331 Audio’s Synthmaster It is a super easy to use, preset
based synthesizer focusing more on modern electronic sounds. So if you’re looking to
dive into huge sounding EDM like big room, trance but not sure how to craft your
own sound yet, this would be the perfect fit. All right let’s take a look at Synthmaster. As you can see it interface is pretty straightforward, it’s just a list
of presets, click and you’re good to go. there’s some controls here and there, but
nothing to complicated. Although Synthmaster is aimed towards EDM producers, it’s versatile. Some presets are pretty mellow and can be used for
any other genres like this mallet sounds over here. And together 3rd VST, u-he’s Lyrell N6. It is a classic analog subtractive synth. It’s a good starting point
to learn sound synthesis but if you’re not into sound design it comes with
over 580 presets to use. And this is the Tyrell N6. Very nice UI for a
free VST definitely. Of course, all the controls might look intimidating if you
are totally new to sound design, so if you wanna dive straight into presets,
you just click on a preset button, here and you can choose your sounds. So in
this track, I use the N6 to craft a future bass wobble synth. It started from this
moving plasma preset. It’s a soft pad initially, then I played with the ADSR,
routed LFO to the filters, and achieved this sound. Further processed with pancake,
some EQ, filter automation and it sounds like this. And together this is what we came up with You can on this project for free and
experiment it yourself. You just need to download all the instruments mentioned in the video, and of
course own a copy of LIVE Lite. Links down below. And that’s it for today,
next up let us finally tackle the greatest issue of Ableton LIVE Lite,
the notorious 8 tracks limitation. Subscribe and stay tuned.
