Welcome to Ambient Waves from! This Patch is available in both Live 9 standard and Suite version 9.7.3 or higher.

This Patch is a classic 1-5 drone pad with advanced customization using shimmer verb, filters and three different source sounds based on classic Saw, Sine and Square waveforms. Start with the filter down to layer under the intro of a slow song and gradually filter up, add in shimmer verb and try the "Little Extra" macro to add some drive to your sound as you build dynamics. With preset MIDI clips in every key, this patch works great in both Session and Arrangement view.

Please note that this patch isn't a playable pad, it is designed specifically to function as a 1-5 drone.
