F9 Audio has been creating tools for electronic producers for quite some time now. Their products are also renown for being incredibly user and budget-friendly. LIVE RACKS is the latest collection of tools from F9 that utilizes Ableton’s awesome audio, and MIDI instruments and effects. Anybody that uses Ableton should swoop on this new suite. The included instruments and processing not only sound and work amazingly, they are also valuable learning tools to understand the complicated applications of an intricate program like Ableton.
Digital audio production and mixing is often about developing the quality of boring 2-D samples and sounds. Parallel processing layers multiple iterations of a sound on top of one another, creating power, without sacrificing clarity. LIVE RACKS also aids in unraveling the mysterious power of parallel processing, with Live as a virtual teacher of sorts. This process adds punch, power and guts to your mixing.
F9’s founder James Wiltshire has established himself as a production guru; from his tutorials and reviews, to his articles, James has serious experience in the industry. He’s also mixed countless hit records, so it’s safe to say you’re in good hands. James’ honed understanding of parallel techniques and production has transferred into Ableton excellently.
