Beat Making Made Easy – Sonic Bloom Review
For me, actually making the beats I heard in my head was the hardest part when I got started with producing.
This is what Liquid Rhythm does in a nutshell:
- Develop musical ideas by instantly inserting and swapping bar-long rhythm patterns.
- Create beats fast by painting groups of notes directly onto the arranger.
- Humanize the velocity and groove of multiple notes simultaneously based on their underlying colour patterns.
- Generate musically-informed rhythm patterns from a customisable palette.
- Create tom fills and multi-instrument percussion patterns.
- Integrate Liquid Rhythm into your workflow as VST, AU or RTAS plugin or via Max for Live.
Liquid Rhythm, a beat generator made by WaveDNA, makes building beats and adding variations and breaks very simple. I’ve been mainly working with the Max for Live MIDI effect as it’s really convenient and even faster than with the plug-in. With the Max for Live MIDI effect, you only have to select a MIDI clip in Live’s Session View. If it already contains notes, those are reflected in Liquid Rhythms’ arranger. Once you add notes in the arranger, they will be automatically added to the MIDI clip in the Session View. No need to record them, unless you want to create changes on the fly without duplicating the clip multiple times.
The installation is easy and quickly done. If you have Max for Live, you can find the Liquid Rhythm MIDI effect in the browser under Max for Live > Max MIDI Effect. Simply add it to the MIDI track for the beat plus a Drum Rack of your choice (it doesn’t work with Impulse presets or other MIDI instruments). Otherwise add the plug-in to the MIDI track.
