Analogik Drum Loops LibraryAnalogik Drum Loops consists of 200 analogue drum machine loops. The most sort after analogue drum machines were passionately recorded, focusing on analogue tone and character. Unique patterns have been programmed in order to inspire and aid your creativity. Drag and drop to existing songs or start your songwriting with an analogue rhythm.
Every DetailThe Drum Machines focused on were an original Roland 808 & 909, a Dinsync Drumdokta 2, and a uniquely programmed modular synth.
All drum loops were recorded through high-end analogue equipment, such as Thermionic Culture, Neve, Elysia and much more.

Analogik Waves II Live PackFlatpack Analogik Waves II delves deeper into capturing the warmth of analogue and bringing it to the convenience of Ableton Racks. Continuing on from Analogik Waves, some specific and unique analogue oscillators have been extensively sampled and mapped out into inspiring and beautifully warm sounding Ableton Instruments.
ContentsThe three oscillators that form the core of Analogik Waves II are:
- Verbos Harmonic Oscillator
- Endorphin.es Furthrrr Generator
- Whimsical Raps Mannequins Mangrove
There are 2815 oscillator samples that allow every
Simpler/Oscillator patch to be consistently in-tune from C0 to C6 on the keyboard.
All samples were recorded at 24bit 96k.
Analogik Waves II was produced exclusively for Flatpack by leading sound designer and engineer, Alexander [Sasha] Lewis.
the processThe aim was to focus on three totally unique analogue oscillators that sound like no other (either in the analogue or digital realm), and sample them to nth degree. Each of the chosen oscillators have extensive sonic possibilities, so there are thousands of creative options to sample. We also played with the way the samples were recorded, either cleanly, or with heavy colouring and processing, such as analogue distortion. This results in Ableton Instruments that are in-tune yet keep analogue idiosyncrasies up and down the keyboard.
Every DetailThe overall goal was to create a Pack that had similar sonic capabilities of a modular synth, yet could be tweaked within the simple framework of 8 Macros and could be played polyphonically. Something very hard and expensive to achieve in the hardware world.
The programmed macros in each Instrument can vastly alter the sonic possibilities at a simple turn of a knob. Therefore these Instruments can be on a sonic palette such as a hardware analogue modular system. And of top of this, Analogik Waves II can be polyphonic, something very expensive and laborious to achieve in the hardware realm.

Analogik Waves Live PackFlatpack Analogik Waves is a Live Pack featuring a range of mono synth and poly synth analogue sounds. This Pack covers a wide spectrum of sonic qualities, from raw and dirty mono synth patches to beautiful ethereal poly synth pads and everything in between.
ContentsAnalogik Waves comes with 80 ready made mono synth patches and 40 poly synth patches. Each patch has it's own unique sound and macro mapping for creative control. There are a total of 143 tailor-made Oscillator Simpler patches, which form the core of the 120 Analogik Instruments. These Simpler patches are made up from 1014 analogue samples, recorded at 24bit 96k.
the processNumerous analogue oscillators have been painstakingly sampled and chromatically tracked across the keyboard resulting in raw analogue sounds at the tip of your fingers. From classic to rich and harmonically interesting waveforms, Analogik Waves provides a creative and versatile pallet.
Analogik Waves was produced exclusively for Flatpack by leading sound designer and engineer, Alexander [Sasha] Lewis.
Every DetailCare has been taken to reproduce the evolving nature of analogue, and most patches allow for analogue instability to be controlled, whether warm and wobbly or perfect tracking is required. The latest analogue equipment was recorded for this pack, from Macbeth, Cwejman, to Verbos Electronics and more.
Darwin Live PackIf you liked Scope, you'll love Darwin. Flatpack Darwin features evolving pads, textures and soundscapes to bring unique harmonic atmospheres to your sound design, film, and electronic music projects. Darwin uses a specially crafted Instrument Rack design that blends two sample or synth-based layers. Each of the 50 presets can be adjusted with the built-in macro controls to access a huge range of different tones and movements. Like all Flatpack Live Packs any of the preset starting points can be edited to create your own sounds, using Live's Hot Swap mode to choose sound sources and effects from Darwin's core library.
Equipment UsedThe core source library for Darwin draws from our huge Flatpack collection, and contains a variety of analog synth and acoustic sample sets, waveform loops, and granular textures.
Usage TipsEach of the main Instrument Rack patches is based around two sound sources, with the first macro always used to blend these sounds. All patches also have controls for Master Filter, Reverb Level, Attack and Decay characteristics. A Sub control is also included to filter the low-end, as many of the sounds contain a lot of low frequencies. The final two macros vary by patch. A large variety of sounds can be accessed simply by altering the macros.
Rack StructureEach Rack has two layers, each with a Simpler or Analog sound source. Darwin also includes a selection of Reverb patches which are used in the Racks. Power Users can create their own Darwin patches by unfolding the rack and swapping out the Simpler, Analog, or Reverb patches.
Audio demo content:Examples of the 8 Ableton Drum racks included in this Live Pack. Each track starts of as one of the base kits, then evolves to show how the texture blend feature can subtly or drastically transform the sound. Each pattern was created using the included Clips, where the Clip Automation directly controls our macro assignments.
Texture Beats Live PackProduced exclusively for Flatpack by leading sound designer and engineer, Alexander [Sasha] Lewis. The Texture Beats Live Pack contains 64 kits of contemporary electronic drum sounds and analogue textures. Each kit features a unique "Texture Blend" control, making it effortless to blend FX-style textures to manipulate and customise individual drum sounds. Texture Beats is split into 2 groups; "Elektric" and "Simplex". Both categories have been carefully matched and grouped to provide drum kits with similar characteristics.
Round Robin HatsIn order to make hi-hat programming easier, a 'round robin' sample management system per kit is included to help humanise the groove. The hi-hats in all the kits rotate between 10 slightly different samples, adding to the analogue feel of Texture Beats.
Elektric & SimplexAll sounds have been created using modern and vintage analogue equipment. In total there are 32 "Elektric" Kits (16 mono / 16 stereo) and 32 "Simplex" Kits (16 mono / 16 stereo). There are 8 original drum kits within this total. These 8 kits have 4 alternatives with a unique texture ready to be mixed into the original sounds.
Creative DesignEvery kit has been designed to maximise the creativity of the Drum Rack format within Ableton. The trademark of each kit is the ability to mix and blend analogue textures using the available Macros.All drum sounds within Texture Beats creatively respond to velocity. The sounds can dramatically change between a low velocity setting and the maximum velocity value (127). The drum sounds also vary according to the sustain length. In practice, this means the longer a note is held down (a key on a keyboard or a pad on an MPC controller), the further a sound develops. By varying the MIDI note lengths in a clip the drum sounds will evolve and change accordingly.

Synthetik Loops Live PackWith over 500 synthetically generated loops containing beats, music, and texture styles, Synthetik Loops is a distinctive and original tool kit beyond the mundane. The drum, music and textures of Synthetik Loops are perfect for both music production and sound design.
Synthetik texturesThe Synthetik textures are a carefully selected batch of loops ranging from the subtle to the bizarre, musical to discordant for creating characterful and atmospheric music.
Synthetik loopsSynthetik Loops can be synced to the global tempo of your track and shifted to different keys or pitch. Using Ableton’s warp feature and editing controls, Synthetik Loops can also be further modified and customized by re-timing and re-quantizing beats for even more deep, rich patterns.
Hi - Mid - Lo FrequencyBeats are set up in Hi/Mid/Lo frequency groups. This concept of grouping beats allows easy layering and combination choices for you to create your own loops. You can select your own hi-hats from our Hi-frequency batch, combine these with claps, snares and bleeps from the Mids, and complete your loop with a selection of kicks, subs and low rumbles. There are almost countless combinations for you to invent. Each loop comes available as an Ableton clip for accurate tempo syncing.
Music LoopsMusic Loops are also set up in Hi/Mid/Lo frequency groups, again allowing for a myriad of layering combinations. Combine Hi-pitched glides or resonant hats with Mid-frequency TB-303 squelches, chord stabs or grungy sixteenths, and underpin them with low-end sub bass frequencies, filtered drops and throbs.
Live Pack content:
- Multi-layer loop library: Over 500 synthetically generated loops containing beats, music and texture styles. Categorised in frequency range for multi layer options which provides a near endless variety of user created loops.
- Requirements: Live v8.2.2 or Higher
Audio demo content:Created with 6 Scope patches [Almach Mira, Izar, Spica, Vega, Wesen Street & Sheliak Echo], layered to form a film score style sound bed.
Flatpack’s expertise in waveform design and synthesis process takes care of the complexity and presents you a simple and musical library with Scope.
Scope Live PackFlatpack’s Scope library of sound-scapes, pads, textures is also a modular construction kit for generating rich evolving sound beds where the only limitation is your imagination. The Scope preset instrument racks are great creative starting points giving you, the user, instant and simple control. Delving further into Scope, you’ll find we’ve designed this kit so you can build your own sounds within Ableton.
evolve and interactThe elements of weird and wonderful recordings are all looped seamlessly and allow you to blend the sounds to your liking, while Ableton’s controls determine how the sounds evolve and interact. You can create custom waveform combinations by loading ‘hot swappable’ pre programmed ‘simpler’ patches into the rack for tonal variety.
dark, disturbing, and atmosphericScope is carefully constructed so the devices used in the instrument rack link back to the raw materials in the Flatpack source library: this allows you to further customise Scope by creating your own patches. Our design of Ableton’s instrument rack allows you to mix between two complex waveforms, control the filter, FX and envelope for each patch created from Flatpack’s award winning texture waveform library.
Scope is dark, disturbing, and atmospheric; the perfect tool for the avant garde musician, film and TV composer.
Drones & WaveformsBased on ambient drones and analogue and digital waveforms, we’ve used our expertise of synthesis techniques to process Scope’s pads. Flatpack takes care of the complexity of this sound design process, and offers you a library programmed for simplicity and musicality.
Textura Live PackOtherworldly, cinematic, and lush, these ambient textures are wonderfully diverse and emotive. If you are looking for the bizarre, peculiar, eerie, or unusual, the Flatpack Textura library will inspire you.
ambient sound-scapesThe 50 Instrument Racks contain intricate blends of evolving textures from our ambient sound-scape Library. We’ve designed an instrument rack to give simple control over our complex sound-beds allowing you to control the filter, stereo spread, amplification envelope and reverb levels at the twist of a knob.
ambient sound designMake these ambient textures sit in the foreground of your mix for drama and suspense, or sit back for an overall atmospheric haze. From the fantastical to the mysterious, Textura excels at ambient sound design for musicians and composers looking for that extra ‘something’ to spice up their mix. Use Textura to create an aural counterpart to the film image or game play you are composing for; heighten your music to evoke a desired environment, landscape or mood. Textura is an ideal library to spark your imagination and creativity.
subtle decaysDesigned with the Textura sound-scapes in mind, the 50 advanced reverb settings that are accessible with this library allow you to create additional sonic layers and subtle decays.
Audio demo content:Examples of the 8 Ableton Drum racks included in this live pack. All Patterns were created by Daniel Miller, using two of his beloved Notron hardware sequencers, triggering the ARP 2600 drum racks.
We have included these patterns as Clips in this Live Pack, for your tweaking pleasure.
