When you want to make something really glitchy, sometimes you need to think outside the box in melodic sequencing. In this new video tutorial, Ableton Certified Trainer Kill Paris looks at sampling melodic phrases and putting them into a Drum Rack, then playing them back with a Launchpad.
Sometimes it might seem like you have too many drum samples - you want to hear which ones fit together, but sifting through them in the browser isn't the ideal way. In a new tutorial, Ableton Certified Trainer and Live-courses.com instructor Rob Jones shows you an easy way to organize all of your samples together using nested Instrument Racks within a Drum Rack. Use macros to audition different drum sounds and find the kicks, claps, hi-hats and other sounds that best fit together for the pattern you're working on.
This video is part one in a three-part series on using Racks in Live. Check back on the Blog for parts two and three!
