_rubber band

_rubber band brings rubber love to Ableton in the form of a unique sampled bass instrument that's fun to tweak and play.


Check out this video walkthrough of what's inside here:


Sampling a rubber band in tune was harder than we thought. In order to capture very low frequencies and the micro dynamics, we had to get a very low noise microphone, very close to a rubber band that's stretched just enough, and then pluck it very carefully. Most of our time was spent getting just the right plucks to work together in one instrument.


We were surprised at how close it sounded to a real bass instrument. Creating an Ableton instrument that brought more versatility to the samples was a lot of fun. We wanted you to have a few real time controls that feel like you're messing around with an elastic band as you play it, but still be a solid bass instrument that delivers what's necessary.

For best results, we recommend updating to the latest version of Ableton Live for patch/preset compatibility.


Ableton error messages such as, "Only audio effects can be placed in this kind of track." or, "Preset can not be loaded. It's probably broken." - usually indicate that our presets were made in a version of Ableton that is newer than yours. If you run into issues, please contact us for help!


Important: Ableton Live files are not backwards compatible. We generally create new releases in the current version of Ableton Live. Currently, all of our Ableton releases are for version 11.0 or greater. Using older versions of Ableton Live will most likely not allow you to use our newest releases. Consider updating your version of Ableton to the latest version to ensure good compatibility.


Some of our Ableton releases are for specific editions of Ableton only (Intro, Standard, Suite). Please ensure you have the correct version before purchasing.
