Tarekith DJ EFX Racks version 9


Well, it’s taken me a little while to revisit my DJ EFX for Ableton Live, but recently it was brought to my attention that some of the DJ EQ Racks I had created no longer functioned properly in Live 9.  It seems that the new Adaptive Q in EQ 8 was causing some pretty massive spikes in the signal, and the EQ curves no longer matched my original models.  Now all of the EFX Racks are compatible with Ableton Live 9, and you will need Live version 9.04 (or newer) for them to work properly.

I also create a couple of new racks as well, called “Lock & Key” and “Red Shift”.  These are a little on the weirder side, so look in the included READ ME file for the details.

Hope you enjoy the new effects, and that the ones I fixed solved any issues people were having. If you notice any issues with any of the other Racks when using Live 9, please let me know and I will try and fix them ASAP.

Thanks, and have fun!

    Thank you, Tarekith! I’ve been a fan of your effects for a long while, and really happy to see the upgrade.

      No problem, really happy that so many people are getting some use out of the racks I build. I never imagined they’d be so popular!

    Wish you would update your EQ3 to take use of the 48db cut available in the new EQ8… it’s really messy using 8 bands just to do a cut.

    • Tarekith05-22-2013

      Don’t worry about how it looks 🙂 I actually tried using the 48dB and redoing them, but found that the way I was doing it before still was closer to the response curves of EQ3.

    Where is the link to down load the new rack?

    Never mind. My web browser was not showing the link fixed it.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

      I’ll do what I can to make some improvements. The blog is just a quck little place for me to share ideas and my own thoughts on music making, but I have to balance how much time I spend on it with how much time I spend mastering other people’s music. Only one of those pays the bills unfortunately 🙂
