_the shakes brings free infinite rhythmic + textural design to Ableton for sampled shakers and tambourines. Instant pattern gen + blend at your fingertips.

We always want some sort of extra percussive thing or texture to accent our beats, but making new rhythms from scratch and finding samples is a chore. What if we could just load up an instrument with a bunch of useful patterns that we could blend in parallel and be done with it? We set off and sampled our favourite studio shakers and tambourines, and brought them into Ableton Live for something s-s-special.

We used over 60 Max for Live devices in this pattern bending and blending power tool, then sprinkled on some cool effects, and 41 macro presets to show you the ropes. Automate the macros for pattern presets and FX for maximum shakiness.

From straight time to fake time, these are the shakes.

Note: This device uses 60+ Max for Live MIDI devices in just 1 Ableton Device so expect loading times to be long (Average is +/-1 min).

• 36 shaker and tambourine samples. (5MB)

• 20x3 different bendable percussion patterns (60 total).

• 1 Ableton 11.3+ Session.

• 1 Ableton Device with 41 effects + pattern presets.

• 96k/24bit .wav sources.

• 100% Royalty-Free.

• Designed in Vancouver, Canada by Subsocial Studios.
