By | May 24, 2023


Publisher: F9 Audio
Website: F9 Audio
Format: LIVE
Quality: 24 bit 48 kHz stereo

Description: The sound signature of the 80s has never been so important in modern productions. TV shows, retro-flavored movies, and the natural 30-year cycle of musical fashion mixed with powerful nostalgia and bought the whole genre of synthetic and sampled sounds back to the fore.
This pack requires Ableton Live 9.5 or higher ( including all versions of Live 10 )

Content :
7 fully working Ableton Projects (everything from the audio demos)
10 Ableton Project startup pages pre-loaded with sounds
201 Ableton Racks with full macros
450+ Pre-warped loops
8 Full Ableton Drumtrax Projects

The only way to get the authentic sound of the decade that changed how music was made forever is to sample the actual devices used at the time, via the high-end analog hardware used to record the classic records that punctuate the decade that bought us the analog monster poly synths, the drum machine and the early 8 and 12 bit samplers.
The F9 Grid Trilogy is serious remix of our original F9 releases : Grid V1.0, Grid V2.0 and Grid V3 with an enormous amount of new multisampled content, drum sounds and pro-level templates. We have progressed tremendously as a company since our 1st sample pack releases and this immensely powerful new release harnesses the technologies and techniques we know our customers love in releases such as the F9 Ableton Toolkit.
This one for me is once again a hugely personal F9 release – I grew up immersed in the Pop, Indie and Movie music of the 1980s and the technology surrounding its creation has always held an amazing fascination for me. Due to a random moment whilst at my local theater as a child the very first synth I ever touched and played on was a Jupiter 8. That moment shaped my entire professional life as the mixture of art, technology and seeming limitless possibilities is an emotion I ‘ve carried with me ever since I first tweaked and Filter cut-off control.
This release has been months in the making and we were still adding patches right up until the final testing stages. We fell it is the most flexible and powerful 80’s themed release currently available for Ableton Live at this price point.
Sonically we have considered one aesthetic during the development process: Future Retro. Too many retro packs have a deliberate Lofi edge burnt into the audio that cannot be undone. This sounds, vibe and flexibility of this release will fit into any contemporary production. If you still want a Lofi edge the authenticity of the sound sources ( see equip list below ) ensures that they respond perfectly to Post processing.
We are very proud to say that we are one of the only sample labels that not only provides sounds in the most flexible way possible, but can show yo exactly how to piece elements together into a coherent production via the template pages and supply Startup pages within your DAW for instant inspiration.
