Singing Bowl – Free Ableton Instrument

This little singing bowl got the Critical Vibrations treatment, and is now a playable Sampler instrument.


Two instruments, in fact!

We recorded it being played with a violin bow drawn across the edge, to create an ethereal pad sound. Then, for a more typical effect, a struck version for some bell-like tones.

Stick this on a track where you need a mystical ethnic feeling. Make sure to twiddle the macro knobs around for some interesting effects.

      Hi Brian,
      Sorry you’re having trouble…you can either manually add the .alp extension to the unzipped file if it’s not there OR try downloading the file again (I zipped it inside a folder and re-posted it, so you shouldn’t have the same problem again). If you do still have problems downloading or installing the pack, please let me know!

        Hi Sebastian,
        Wow, Murphy’s Law is really getting us…. I got the same error as you did…but I just went through and re-zipped and re-uploaded all the files on the site. You should have NO errors this time! Thanks for your patience, I’m glad you enjoy the packs!
