This HD video tutorial is our first of many audio production tutorials that focus on many different DAW techniques. For this Ableton Live tutorial we focus on the many ways you can quickly edit and manipulate a stock drum loop and turn it into something unique and interesting.
Using techniques such as 'Slice to MIDI', 'Midi Mapping' and the 'Beat Repeat' effect you can very easily re-sequence a drum groove to suite the style of your song. We also use pitch modulation, filter sweep and saturation to drastically enhance a stock drum loop. We took a high quality acoustic drum loop from the Ska Guitars V1 loop pack and mashed it up using the techniques mentioned above to create a totally different sound.
