    Default Recommended ABletong Live Packs

    Has anyone got any good Live Pack recommendations?

    I'm looking to produce house-ish music so something relevant to that would be good. Also, any advice on good drum racks for house music would be ace!

    Cheers.

    Not exactly an Ableton specific package but you might want to look into the Vengeance sample and loop packs. They have ones for House, Minimal, Club, Trance and whatnot. Those libraries are used a lot by popular Dance producers and are more or less affordable for everyone.

    But of course, as with most frequently-used sample packs, you have to be careful not to sound too much like everyone else

    Had a look and the Vengeance and Loopmasters ones seem decent. Though there may be a lot of effect processing required to make them sound different to the standard loops/everyone else.

    Are there any decent third party midi instruments you can add into Ableton available?
