Free Weekly Ableton Live Rack # 15: AfroDJMac Fender Feedback

YouTube Uploaded by AfroDjMac on Jul 4, 2011

"Here's two instrument racks I created using screeching feedback from my Fender Mustang and Jag-Stang guitars, played through my sea-foam green Fender Deluxe. Surprisingly, despite coming from such a loud and wild source, these racks are fairly mellow and reminiscent of a vintage keyboard. In the video, I show you how the racks work and take you through the effects. I also spend a little time explaining how I achieve the mapping on my racks. Enjoy and spread the word :)

Download the rack here:

**Non Live users: You can use the samples in your DAW of choice**

Thanks for watching :)


And some additional info vi AfroDJMac:
"AfroDJMac here, back again with another free Ableton Rack, number 15 "Fender Feedback Rack." Being a guitarist, I always loved the sound of the electric guitar growling over into harmonically rich feedback. So I set up my Fender Mustang and Fender Jag-Stang, ran them through my trusty sea-foam green Fender Deluxe, cranked up the gain and began sampling. If you were there, listening to all that noise I was making, you''d be surprised at how the final product turned out. More like a vintage electric piano, rich and warm in flavor, I might even call this instrument "mellow." Even though, in all honesty, I was hoping for something as ruthless as the source material, this instrument has warmth and character oh so pleasing to my ear.

Here's the rack:

After doing this for 15 weeks now, I've reflected back to when I first began releasing these racks, and I had no idea how many people could be reached nor how nice it'd be to hear from people all over the world. Creating these racks is truly a pleasure and I thank you for spreading the word. :)"
