Uppercussion sound designer Paul Maurer has reputation for exploring everything from synthesis in Max to bouncing toy balls when finding sounds for his Packs. If you’ve used Live 9, then you’re already familiar with Paul’s work on Uppercussion packs, including Digicussion, Acoustified, and the add-on Packs Monstrosities and Vocalisms.
Conundrums, the latest Pack, is about as hard to nail down as its title would suggest. Featuring 50 kits, that includes sounds that are subtle, blunt, dry, saturated, light, heavy - there’s a whole spectrum of audible colors represented here. Perhaps the best way to get your hands around Conundrums is to try a few demo kits - you’ll easily see how quickly you can make great percussive grooves.
