Spectral Blur in Ableton’s Free Sample Pack
Another audio effect from the Creative Extensions free Ableton sample pack is Spectral Blur. It creates sounds and textures that are best described as reverb-like. A user-defined frequency range of a signal is blurred to create a dense cloud of sound. This device is great for sharp filtered effects with narrow bandwidths, or to spread your sound across the whole spectrum.
The Halo control adjusts the length of the blurred grains. The Residual control adjusts the level of the unprocessed signal. Lastly, The Freeze button holds the affected signal until the button is switched off.
