Gravitas Create Free Stems, Ableton Live Assets & Plug-in Presets
If you haven’t been paying attention to the Austin, Texas label Gravitas Recordings, you’ve missed out on a lot of positive and/or trippy psychedelic bass music vibes from artists around the world. The label also gives out a lot of free tracks, as well as “pay what you want” releases. Not only that, but Gravitas has also branched out into Gravitas Create, an effort to make tools, products, tutorials and remix/production contests for electronic producers.

Gravitas Create has put out several sound packs from artists on the label, and it has quite a few free resources as well, including stems from artists on the label, Ableton Projects that teach production techniques, a Chinese Pipa Ableton Rack instrument, and preset collection for the Xfer Serum and NI Massive plug-in synths. You’ll have to register an email address for the downloads, but then you’ll be notified when there are new Gravitas Create production or remix challenges, often with nice prizes attached, so it’s really a win/win.

Overloud Exclusive TH3 Time and Space Free Edition Guitar Amp Models
There’s not a producer around who couldn’t use some nice guitar amp model plug-ins, regardless of what sounds sources you’re employing. Even if you’re DAW includes stock amp models, as most do, you’d do well to check out the free edition of Overloud TH3 Guitar Amp Simulator. The full version retails for £265, and this free edition includes all the features of the full version except with fewer models. You can achieve cleanly saturated tones to heavily distorted screams with this high-quality modelling plug-in.

TH3 includes a flexible routing chain where you can match any amp, cabinet, effect, and mic with any other, as well as MIDI learn. A 3D room simulation lets you setup virtual mics around the space of simulated room types. This massive offering wraps up a ton of high-level technology into about 1GB of material unzipped, and is a must-have free amp studio in AU, VST, AAX, and standalone formats.

Air Music Technology Sample Pack Sampler
Sometimes a free offer comes around that really ought to be shared even if it’s not supposed to be. I’m talking about how Air Music Technologies just added 18 or so new soundpacks to its library and has set out a link to a sampler taking from 11 of those new titles. The sound designers Touch Loops prepared the new titles, and the free Touch Loops Mini Pack includes about 200 WAV and MIDI files from titles like Ambient Texture, Blissed Out Beats, Dark Techno, Old Skool House, Soulful Keys, Tokyo Electro, and others. The link to this download may have been intended only for registered Air Music Technology customers, so in the event that you have any problems with it, please tweet me @treefitty. Otherwise, enjoy!
