But it’s time for another rack. This week I’m sharing a very useful MIDI Effect Rack that will automatically create amazing fills and turnarounds.
This rack is using the Arp device from the Max for Live Essentials pack chained with various MIDI effects.
It essentially works by holding one MIDI note and letting the rack trigger and randomize all the samples.
To setup the Fill Maker. You need to follow this 4 simple steps
- Load a Drum Rack
- Set the Sample Range to the number of sounds you have loaded in the Drum Rack
- When you want the Fill Maker to create a fill. Hold the first note of the Drum Rack (usually C1) and automate the On/Off of the Fill Maker
On/Off – This is the main control that should be automated. Turn on or off the Fill Maker
Speed – Controls the speed (rate) range of the Fill Maker
Sample Range – Set the number of samples the Fill Maker will use
Quantize – Turn on a Speical Arpeggiator to quantize the fill hits to 1/16 notes
