You can never have too many tools at your disposal to make exciting new textures and timbres out of flat, uninspiring sounds. Seed to Stage’s Anthony Thogmartin shared a batch of useful tips with his previous video, “Making Original Sounds with Ableton Live.” Now Anthony is back with another round of smart and surprising ways you can take standard tones and transform them into one-of-a-kind sonic elements.
The video includes simple techniques such as using Corpus to give an electric piano more resonant body and creating comb filter effects using Echo. For those wanting to create vast new sounds from the smallest of material, you can learn how to process small loops of field recordings through a Grain Delay to create epic harmonic material, and much more.
