A tool that lets you divide a breakbeat into Kick, Snare, and Hats / Cymbals.

Simulates the filtering done by the vocal tract for different vowels.
Weeklyish Patch 09 – Vocal Remover
Removes anything panned dead center between a low and a high frequency. Useful to remove vocals for mashups.
Weeklyish Patch 08 – Multiband Distortion
A 4 band distortion, letting you distort different parts of a signal’s spectrum individually.
Weeklyish Patch 07 – Smart Knobs v.1
FX where a single knob is mapped to a bunch of parameters in an effect. Awesome to save space on your controller for live performances. Compressor, Distortion, Reverb, Delay, and Beat Repeat.
Weeklyish Patch 06 – Lo & Hi Exciter
Load it in a Return track and it’ll allow adding some distortion to the highs and lows and mixing them nicely with the clean signal, helping bring out some top harmonics and rounding out the bottom.
Weeklyish Patch 05 – Dub Delay
Dub delay. Stick it in a return track, make the return track feedback into itself and tweak away.
Weeklyish Patch 04 – Dist Machine
Live’s Distortions built into a single rack.
Weeklyish Patch 03 – Layering Impulse
An extended Impulse that allows 16 drum parts with 4 samples each. Impulse’s filter, saturator and timestretching for each sample slot allows some quick and dirty drums layering.
Weeklyish Patch 02 – NY Style Compressor
NY Style Compression is simply a process where the original uncompressed signal is mixed with a heavily compressed copy of the same signal. These racks add a Dry/Wet control to Live’s Compressors, allowing easy mixing of the compressed and uncompressed
Weeklyish Patch 01 – M-Axe
This is the first of a series of (hopefully) Weekly patches for Ableton Live. M-Axe is a Simpler Rack meant to create a guitar like sound off a short snare sample.
