Freebies Round-Up – Beat Lab Tools Collected

We’re dedicated to providing affordable education to the entire music community, so we’re always giving away plugins, videos, tutorials, etc. Money may be tight, or you’re just looking to save up any way, so we gathered some of the best free resources Beat Lab has to offer.

In this article, we’ll go over some of our most popular freebies. Check them out below!

Beat Lab Autotuna

 

 

Ever wanted your vocals to sound like Post Malone or Daft Punk? Well now is the perfect time to try it out. With our free download, you’ll be able to autotune your vocals with total ease.

Make sure you have Max for Live, otherwise the device won’t work. If you don’t have Live Suite then now is the perfect time to upgrade! Check out Ableton’s free 90-day trial of Live Suite, or take advantage of our student discounts by enrolling in one of our online courses.

Check out our article on how to use the device here.

 

 

Beat Lab Instant Afro

 

 

We can find influences of Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms in all styles of music. The main rhythm that inspired other cultures all over the world was the clave rhythm.

Interestingly enough, the African rhythms they were inspired by came back to Africa. Today, we can hear the clave rhythm in modern African pop music, Dancehall, Reggaeton, and even dance music like big room house and tribal.

Download the Instant Afro MaxforLive device for FREE. This device will help you make Afro drum patterns with the click of a button. You must have Live Suite or Live + Max in order to use this device.

Beat Lab MPC Pad Cycler for Live

 

 

Here’s another free Max for Live device! This one is for the finger drummers – MPC Style Pad Cycler for Ableton. This device allows you to load as many samples as you want on one pad. And cycle between the samples in all sorts of ways while still using just one pad!

Beat Lab Drum Buss Key Follower

 

 

The new Drumbuss Audio Effect in Live 10 is an efficient powerhouse of processing. It has a built-in compressor, clipper, saturation, distortion and Transient shaping.

Ableton added to that their secret sauce in a low resonator that can take create some enormous 808-ish bass out of any audio with some low-end content.

The best part about it is that you can tune the resonating bass note using the Freq knob.

Now thanks to Max for Live we are able to play the Drumbuss’s Boom section!!! See the original article here for a more in-depth look.

This device was Developed by Dez. Modded by Yeuda Ben-Atar for Beat Lab.
