What's inside a Mad Zach Sound Pack?


So Much Fun!


At their core, these packs were designed to be amazingly fun. Get lost for endless hours in the musical world of the packs, without having to program a thing. Each pack holds a complete song idea, but is also open to interpretation, so really it’s more like a song world. Tempo can bend, sounds shifted. You won’t be able to pull yourself away...




Learn to Finger Drum with the included Video Lessons


Each pack in the new volume also comes with a video lesson built into the Ableton project. Watch an overhead shot of Mad Zach’s hands playing, and loop different sections as he works through a range of unique beats with each pack. Slow down the master tempo and the video/audio/leds will slow down too, which makes learning to finger drum way easier ...and if you have an LED equipped midi controller, the midi clips will even light up your controller to show you when to play what! Download the Ableton Trial here and you'll be able to play sound packs forever, even once the trial ends. 




Truly Inspired Sound Design


The newest volume represents a new echelon of audio quality and character. Designed using a vast range of high quality analog equipment and outboard gear, these are not your average samples… they were crafted over years of “going deep” in the Mad Lab, and you can hear the attention to detail in every sound. You’ll find nothing but rich tone, warmth, punch, depth and character. The sounds range from drums, basses, synths, atmospheres, risers, effects, and beyond. Volume 5 contains over 350 uniquely crafted one-shots to inspire, and fuel great ideas.




The QWERTY Drummer


No MIDI controller? No problem! Inside Volume 5 you’ll find an application called “QWERTY Drummer” (Mac-only) which allows you to play the sound packs on your computer keyboard (using any version Ableton Live). No software? No problem! Download an Ableton trial and you'll be able to play the packs forever, even after the trial ends. Zach designed the QWERTY drummer to make finger drumming ergonomic and fun for those who don't have a midi controller!



What can you do with a Mad Zach Sound Pack?


Use your favorite controller

All the packs work perfectly with any grid based midi controller. Most are designed specifically for a 4X4 grid but a few feature 32 sounds and are optimized for two grids of 4X4 or something like a Launchpad/Push. That means midi fighter, launchpad, Push, Maschine, basically anything with buttons, you get the picture :)
Play with any software

We've made sure each pack in the new volume works perfectly with Ableton, Maschine, and Kontakt... but even if you don’t have music software already, you can download the free Ableton Trial version and load the packs with confidence, for endless jamming.




Jam with Friends

Of course, the sound packs are a blast by yourself, but grab a neighbor/friend/specialfriend/relative or two and just see what happens. Music was meant to be played together! Our favorite way to jam is to put one person on drums and another on bass/fx. Or of course with a rapper, or a scratch dj, or saxophonist, etc. We’ve even seen a few 4 person 1 launchpad jams which blew us away. And with 15 fully loaded packs in volume 5 alone, the fun just won’t stop.
Mix and Match

Each of the packs are labeled by key/tempo, and with 500mb of high quality sounds, it’s a breeze to mix and match the sounds to create your own remix packs. Grab a bass from one, a drum from another, start ripping.  Its also great fun to throw the one-shots in their own samplers and turn them into instruments!


Play Live

“After nearly 2 years of gigging with the last batch of sound packs, I really wanted to dial into what makes a pack fun and functional in a live setting. In creating volume 5, I applied what I learned to make sure each pack is an absolute live performance weapon :)” - Mad Zach

"The sound packs are amazing! Instead of spending hours upon hours creating your own sounds, Mad Zach has already done it for you. I bought all three packs and even saved a little money. It is extremely worth it. I am fairly new to the DJ/finger drumming world, but with the Mad Zach tutorials he really helps you get the basics! He makes his videos even more fun by also adding humor in here and there! Not to mention the guy makes the sickest sounds on any midi controller. Special thanks to Mad Zach!"
