Sample Magic: Creating LoFi Drums


Ableton Racks are a powerful tool. Not only is it possible to map complex features and functions to a single knob, but the ability to stack, layer and blend effects and tones can lead to some extremely unique sound design possibilities. Sample Magic have been creating custom Racks for years now, with everything from mixing and mastering to synthesis and FX all covered across their range of Ableton tools.

More recently they’ve been exploring how to give you even more bang-for-your-buck when picking up an SM pack and their recent Lo-Fi Drums collection is a perfect example.

They’ve created some exclusive Ableton Racks to add lo-fi grit, character and power to your sounds. To give you an insight into how the Racks work, they’ve created a video looking at how to incorporate them into your music. They’re not just for the included sounds, you can put the racks on anything in your mix – watch the video above and start experimenting by picking up the pack here. Take a look at their other Ableton Racks here.

Sample Magic is the leading sound design company for electronic music producers, specialising in contemporary sounds, patches, MIDI and loops for your productions. Find out more about their packs here.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
