_tightly wound takes a rare library of spring reverb noises and weaves them into a truly unique, hybrid instrument + transition FX generator for Ableton.


Watch this demo to see how it works and sounds:


Braeden “Pockets” Rangno has teamed up with us once again for another cheeky creation. Pockets asked what we could do with a library of samples he created while misusing and experimenting with his collection of spring reverb boxes. We said, “We have no idea, but we’ll reverberate on it for while and see.” He said, “cool.” So here we are.


We wanted to design something that can easily generate risers, builds, swooshes, transitions and abstract bass, keys, and percussion sounds.


We used over 2 continuous minutes of the magically magnetic moments he captured to create a hybrid instrument and sound design device like no other. Think 70s swagger meets 21st century sound designer bro. At the heart of this, we have Ableton’s Vector Grain, a device that’s also heavily inspired by magnetics. Vector Grain transforms the spring reverb multisample source file into a fully re-pitched, playable, and designable noise generator that can blur the line between instrument and effect.


Simply use MIDI notes to trigger pitched sound sources, and use the 16 macro controls to shape and design your sound and automate in your timeline. To make it even easier, we included 64 sound presets and 16 starter Ableton Clip (.ALC) MIDI sequences for you to drop in and use anywhere you like. You’ll be up and designing in no time.


• Minimum Requirements: Ableton 11.3.x Standard/Suite.

• 1 Ableton Live 11.3.x Session

• 1 Ableton Live Instrument/transition + FX generator with 64 sound presets.

• 16 starter MIDI effects sequences as drag and drop Ableton Clips (.ALC).

• Real-time macro controls for automating.

• 1 multisample spring reverb audio source. (37MB)

• 96k/24bit .wav source.

• 100% Royalty-Free.

• Designed in Vancouver, Canada by Braeden “Pockets” Rangno & Subsocial Studios.



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.
