Abletunes released Foundation | Strings a collection of free Ableton Live instrument racks that features various string instruments like Cello, Viola, Violin, Contrabass, Psaltery, Concert Harp, Folk Harp, and Strumstick.
Most instruments feature several racks with various articulations like pizzicato, spiccato, tremolo and vibrato.
You can hear these instrument racks (raw version) in our latest cinematic templates and they performed very well. They sound quite good either solo or layered with other instruments.
We also included 15 additional non-orchestral instrument racks designed to extend the range of tones and applications.
Imagine having a library of expertly crafted and ready-to-use instruments that allow you to focus on your ideas instead of tweaking knobs and stacking plugins.
There are plenty of free Ableton packs out there, but for the most part they’re quite random and experimental. Not FOUNDATION. Instead, we make modern and usable instruments that sound great out of the box.
FOUNDATION instruments are fully compatible with the latest version of Ableton Live (Suite or Standard) and don’t require any 3rd party plugins.
By using only Ableton Live instruments and effects we were able to build great-sounding lightweight instrument racks that load instantly, are extremely stable and smooth, and have low CPU usage.
The best part? It’s completely free!
