_tidal drift

_tidal drift brings 100 postmodern pads and a MIDI chord progression pack for Ableton Drift. Clean, modern, & perfectly peripatetic.


Watch a walkthrough sounds demo of what's inside here:


Set yourself adrift on these 100 pads that were created with the same contemporary aesthetic in mind. A palette of pads that shift and drift in subtle enough ways to keep things subliminally dynamic. We wanted these sounds to have a consistent personality and sit in any mix with a focused purpose. We think they’ll serve you well.


There are 100 different presets that are macro-based, so you never need to dive into Drift itself (unless you want to). With 16 knobs and 100 presets at your disposal, you could still be fishing for sounds all day.


We designed some drifty effects around our take on pad design with Ableton’s new synthesizer, giving these pads and instrument a unique flavour profile that’s current enough, but also classic enough.


To get you started, there are also 24 chord progressions ready to use as MIDI files in any DAW, or as Ableton Live Clips (.ALC) that come paired with suggested pad presets.


Synthwave, Vapourwave, Coldwave, Darkwave, or create whatever wave you like with _tidal drift.
