Want to take your mixes to the next level? Fire up Magic Racks: Mix Essentials - five powerful Ableton Racks designed for intuitive and precision sculpting of a track’s key elements.

Each rack has been expertly built to cater to the demands of modern dance music producers - rigorously tried, tested and tweaked to offer incisive mixing options with the simplest of controls for maximum dancefloor impact.

Built exclusively from Ableton’s native tools and FX, each macro-controllable rack offers deep-level and highly-targeted enhancement of the key mix components in any dance track, from kick drum to hi-hats, synths to bass.

You won't find choice overload here; just eight macros per Rack with finely honed controls for the most important aspects of each sound. From common workflow tools to complex signal chains containing saturation, precisely honed EQ, parallel compression and limiting, each one is controlled via a single macro knob to make powerful sound-shaping simple and intuitive. 

But customisation is also key, and all Racks are fully-editable - open them up, tweak parameters, change routings, swap in and out tools - so they fit your workflow seamlessly.

Compiled by Live power-user and long-time SM sound designer Hedflux, Magic Racks: Mix Essentials is the ultimate pairing of workflow optimiser and creative mix tool, allowing you to make intuitive production tweaks to the pivotal components of a track both in the studio and as part of Live sets.

Give life, movement and energy to percussion, hi-hats and tops

5Pin Media DAWcentrix 02 Ableton Racks Mix Master Process Ableton Live 5Pin Media DAWcentrix 02 Ableton Racks Mix Master Process Ableton Live
5Pin Media picks up with the second installment of their DAWcentrix Series with Ableton Racks - Mix Master Process. If electronic music in any shape or form is your bag and you use Ableton Live you should listen and read on.

Mix Master Process as the title implies covers the Mixing, Mastering and Processing stages of music composition using Live's Audio Effects Racks. Well thought out Macros with carefully tuned ranges give you precise control over key aspects of your individual sounds, mix elements, final mix and master.

In the Mixing and Mastering department you will find 17 Racks that cover every aspect from Mid/Side EQ and Compression to Multiband Limiting designed to get your masters sounding wide and loud without unwanted distortion. Each and every rack is accompanied by a PDF user guide detailing the function of the Macros.

In the Process department you will find 17 racks for shaping your individual sounds such as Kicks, Claps, Snares, HiHats and Percussion as well as for processing Loops of all kinds. The Transient Vitalizer for example boosts and shapes transients for more clarity and punch. Use the Vinyl Love Rack for a warmer less sterile sub mix or final mix. Once again each and every rack is accompanied by a PDF user guide detailing the function of the Macros.

As an extra bonus we have included several live projects to provide examples of the Racks in action with the highlight being the demo track where we have created a full mix with all the sounds and elements accessable for you to inspect and tweak followed by a mastering session of the same track as heard in the main demo (big thank's to Adam Shaw for creating the track). Our final challenge was to take the pre-master of our recent release "Cristoph House and Techno Producer" and see how well we could master it using the included racks compared with the official pro master. Listen to our MixMasterProcess version above and compare it to the official pro master here

Please Note: Requires at minimum Ableton Live 9.2 Standard. For minimum recommended system requirements PC/Mac see www.Ableton.com.

What's Inside

Spatializer

The ultimate reverb rack.

A one-stop shop for creating depth, space and texture. Ghostly textures, kaleidoscopic ambience and submerged washes are an effortless breeze with the Spatializer. Macros for Hyper, Spacial and Pressure give controllable distance and width with spectral processing and clever delay chains. Then slot sounds into your mix with the wet/dry mix macro.

Percolator

Slice, dice and re-tune and de-tune pitched percussion on the fly.

Random pitched techno bleeps and bloops, re-pitched grooves and randomised rhythms are all possible through a combination of beat-repeat processing, delay devices and pitch-specific controls. Ideal for adding dynamism and detail to tired percussion and top loops.

Philtrator

Custom distortion effects ideal for giving grit, punch and weight to drums, percussion and tops.

Filter your beats through a vintage, distorted or lo-fi distortion unit modelled on classic analogue processing. The Philtrator really comes to life in a sequencing setting - macros like the Crunch, Step and Freak filters can be tweaked on-the-fly to create dynamic transitions and classic low-pass filter rises. Take things to the next level with the pitch-specific Comb and Ambient filters for even more analogue-style noise, grit and authenticity.

Inphiltrator

Custom redux and filtering chains for weird pitched and re-sampled processing.

The Philtrator’s meaner, rougher younger brother is all about spectral transformation and resonant peak processing which create distorted and degraded harmonics. Simulate the dynamic behaviour of a metal tube and pipe works or incrementally lower the sample-rate and bit-depth with the Ruffness macro. Take things further with a time-based loop sweep and gate delay to create evolving rhythmic textures.

Bewilderizer

Time-based processing utilising tape modelling, beat-repeating and degrading delay chains.

Create perplexing layers and sonics like you've never heard. Drip-pitch your synths with Digital Dribble or create dynamic synthesised vocal FX with a combination of Space Warp and Loop Gap macros. Finally, Floppy Delay, Random Tubes and Epic Space utilise chorus, corpus and amp effects to take your sound design to another dimension.
