Found Sound / / Rural

In the first of our Found Sound series, we foraged for sounds in our local woods to create a beat.

Sounds included trees being hit by a charity shop-bought guitar, snapping twigs and running water.

We recorded these sounds, imported them into Ableton Live Lite & dragged them all onto a drum rack, which were mapped for Launchpad Pro in ‘note mode’.

Could you do better? Have a go! You can download the rural sound pack here. Or, even better, go out and record your own. Whatever you choose, be sure to tag us in the final product using #WeAreNovation.

Don’t have a Launchpad yet or need to master yours before taking on the challenge? Learn all the tools you’ll need here first:

Happy creating
