Create your own melodies, or choose from 201 picked and strummed patterns, recorded by a session pro
Intuitive controls include multiple microphone positionings and pro-grade studio effects

A HANDCRAFTED ORIGINAL
PICKED NYLON captures a one-of-a-kind, nylon-stringed guitar, in an intuitively playable production tool. The instrument’s clean and mellow timbres are perfect for a range of genres, from classical to electronica, as well as distinctive styles like bossa nova and flamenco. Whether you’re producing film scores or pop tracks, the powerful effects and performance controls give you everything you need for your perfect sound.

DEDICATED TO AUTHENTICITY
The sounds of PICKED NYLON were recorded with an instrument built by master guitar-maker Lisa Weinzierl, using rare preamps and a carefully controlled studio environment to capture the perfect tone. Six highly sought-after microphones were used to create three separate stereo setups, for a range of sound options that deliver everything from warm and organic to clean and modern.

START CREATING GUITAR PARTS, FAST
PICKED NYLON comes with an expansive library of strummed chords, picked arpeggios, and delicate riffs, all performed with a range of playing styles by a top-class session player. The instrument’s broad range of song presets can be browsed by genre, for quick and easy access to the style you want. You can also record in your own parts using any MIDI controller, and then add in details like slides, fret noise, and harmonics to bring your compositions to life.

SCULPT YOUR OWN CUSTOM SOUND
With in-built sympathetic resonance, mod-wheel-controlled vibrato, algorithmic fret noises, and even the sound of a real guitarist breathing, PICKED NYLON utilises cutting-edge sampling technology to achieve a stunning level of realism. The instrument also comes with state-of-the-art delay, chorus, flanger, and phaser effects, as well as studio-grade EQ, compressor, and reverb tools, so you can fine-tune sounds to sit perfectly in your mix.

WHEN ARTISTRY MEETS INTUITION
To create the exceptional instrument behind the rich, clear tones of PICKED NYLON, visionary guitar maker Lisa Weinzierl used carefully chosen materials including maple and spruce, with centuries-old techniques inspired by traditional Cremonese luthiers such as Stradivarius. In this video you can learn about the philosophy behind Lisa’s approach to instrument creation, and take an in-depth look at the process that makes her guitars sound so special.

PICK IT WITH KOMPLETE KONTROL
Pair PICKED NYLON with a KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboard for a fun, easy, and efficient way to access everything the instrument has to offer. With KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware, you can quickly browse patterns, tweak and preview sounds, and get at-a-glance info on key ranges and articulations with the Light Guide.

Ableton - Live Suite v11.0.6 (AUG 2021)


Create bolder sounds with Live’s new devices. Stay in the flow with a multitude of workflow improvements. Do even more away from the computer with Push. Build your sound with a curated library. And get the unlimited potential of Max for Live, seamlessly built in.

What’s new in Live 11
Create your perfect take
Take recording and comping
Live organizes multiple passes of an audio or MIDI performance into individual takes. Pick the best moments of each performance and combine them to create your perfect take. Or approach sound design in a new way by splicing together random samples from your library.

Linked-track editing
Link two or more tracks to edit their content simultaneously. This makes editing multi-tracked instruments or performances with multiple musicians easy and fast whilst keeping everything in time across tracks. This feature also works for MIDI tracks.

Add more feeling to your music
Use your MPE-capable controller
Plug in your MPE-capable controller and immediately add bends, slides and pressure for each individual note in a chord. Add subtle expression variations, morph between chords and create evolving sonic textures.

What is MPE?
MPE stands for MIDI Polyphonic Expression. This way of using MIDI allows MPE-capable devices to control multiple parameters of every note in real time for more expressive instrumental performances.

Experiment with new devices
Hybrid Reverb
Hybrid Reverb combines convolution and algorithmic reverbs. Place your sounds in any space, from accurate real-life environments to those that defy physical reality. Use the algorithmic side to add control and modulate the reverb tail, run it in parallel or in series with the convolution side, or play Hybrid Reverb like an instrument for real-time sound design.

Spectral Resonator
Breaks the spectrum of an incoming audio signal into partials, then stretches, shifts and blurs the result by a frequency or a note in subtle or radical ways. The MIDI sidechain input also allows musicians to process material in key and even play the device as if it were a polyphonic instrument.

Spectral Time
Transforms sound into partials and feeds them into a frequency-based delay, resulting in metallic echoes, frequency-shifted and reverb-like effects. The Freeze function captures and holds a slice of audio – either free-running or in time with the beat – for stuttered, glitched and washed-out effects.

PitchLoop89
Create jittery glitch effects, delayed digital shimmers and outlandish vibrato with this Max for Live pitch shifting device created in collaboration with Robert Henke and inspired by the Publison DHM 89 – an early digital effects processor. It’s a flexible tool to add character to sounds in the studio, or for in-the-moment experimentation onstage.

Inspired by Nature
Six playful instruments and effects created in collaboration with Dillon Bastan that use natural and physical processes as their inspiration.

Do more on stage
Tempo Following
Live listens to and adjusts its tempo based on incoming audio in real time, making it a dynamic part of the band instead of the tempo source that everyone has to follow. When you DJ, you can even turn Live into a tempo-synced FX box.

Macro Snapshots
Store the state of your Macros for later recall – perfect for creating instant variations to your sounds or builds and drops during performance.

Rack improvements
Configure your Racks to have between 1 and 16 Macros. Randomize the state of your Macros with the randomization button. Map this control to MIDI and perform drastic changes in real time to surprise your audience and yourself.

Be unpredictable
Note chance
Set the probability that a note or drum hit will occur and let Live generate surprising variations to your patterns that change over time.

Velocity chance
Define ranges for velocity probability for subtle, humanized variations in the dynamics of your patterns.

Do more with Follow Actions
Follow Actions can now be linked to the clip length, making it faster to create interesting sequences of clips. Scene Follow Actions let you create evolving arrangements. You can also set Follow Actions to jump to specific clips and enable and disable Follow Actions globally.

Work with new sounds
New instruments
Created in collaboration with Spitfire Audio, these three Instrument Packs bring the dynamic chamber ensemble textures to any production.

uJAM - Virtual Drummer BRUTE v2.1.1 (AUG 2021)


For rock, grunge, punk and crossover styles.
Modern heavy music genres based on a very specific drumming style: loud, wild, harsh and penetrating mix. Both the drum sounds and the game are based on aesthetics invented about two decades ago. Virtual Drummer BRUTE offers basic sounds and styles from Grunge to NuMetal.
In a nutshell: BRUTE is the virtual drummer for you if HEAVY 2 is too metallic and SOLID 2 doesn't rock hard enough.

From Seattle with l̶̶o̶̶v̶̶e̶̶ greetings - In the early 1990s, a new, guitar-heavy music category set out to win the hearts and ears of the public. A new generation of artists would unleash distorted guitars, angry drums and a whole bunch of moods for an audience that suddenly wanted to rock again. Influenced by the classic rock of the 1960s and 1970s, and in opposition to the synthetic aesthetics of the previous decade, bands such as Rage Against The Machine, Nirvana, Soundgarden or Alice in Chains popularized the next incarnation of rock music. His compilation remains popular to this day among hard rock guitar styles.

Drums in the name- Programming realistic drum tracks can be challenging. With BRUTE, it's quick and easy, so you can focus on your music!

Sharp, clear character - What makes BRUTE special? Above all, it was designed, recorded and processed to do one thing really well: to compete against multi-layered walls of distorted guitars while maintaining character and detail. It was not an easy task ... The solution was to record with three different sets of microphones that accentuate different aspects of the drum sound.

Each of the three sets of microphones has a specific sonic function :
Click / Slap A
vintage 1960s Sennheiser MD21 emphasizes attack transients. The original signal was processed by Manley Voxbox.

Sand / Mud
Vintage tube and ribbon boom microphones. Here the character is captured. All organic noises and resonances that give warmth, roughness and naturalness.

Clean / Nice \
State of the art Schoeps microphones with high performance specifications that pick up sound "as is." With the lowest possible coloration and distortion. For an expensive and glossy character.

Rock Kit - The five drum kits in BRUTE have been created with specific styles in mind. Hear these different drum kits, from dry to processed, mixing the mix presets and Smack knob with the sound of each kit.

Sound City- If you want to dive deeper into the history of this sound, we recommend Dave Grohl's (Foo Fighters) documentary "Sound City" about the cult studio.

NOFX? Well, there is a little ... - Mix presets shape the overall sound, replacing an entire effect chain with multiple buses for each channel. Saves you time and hassle fighting a DAW bus system.
Features at a glance - BRUTE offers 5 drum kits, 6 mix presets, 31 styles with 23 preset phrases each for a total of 713 phrases.

Smack - Make your drums unique! Smack adds specially recorded and processed mic signals that focus attacks and transients while maintaining the warm, organic quality of the setup.
Grit - Switch between two sets of microphones, mostly from good and clean to dirty and mean.
