Ableton Tutorial - Rhythmic Gated Patterns

In this tutorial I share a technique for turning any texture, pad, or soundscape into a tight rhythmic stuttering pattern. It's accomplished using sidechain options of the gate effect in Ableton Live. This type of effect is something you hear in a lot of psy dub, psy trance, and psybient music. You hear it used in many songs by artists like Shpongle, Ott, Bluetech, Phutureprimitive, and many more.

Ableton Live + TouchOSC + Live Control

I recently found Live Control which is an open source template for TouchOSC that incorporates user midi remote scripts just like the APC40.  It's a really phenomenal tool, because it basically allows you to turn your iPad into an APC40.  At least the python script was written to interact with Ableton Live in much the same way giving an insane amount of control with minimal effort.  In fact, it communicates both ways ...

Creative Resampling in Ableton

by DJ Story Resampling opens up a lot of creative potential when producing music in Ableton. I find it especially handy when I want to add a bit of randomness to a composition, because you can record the random variations in and edit them down into what actually sounds good to your ear. Let's say for example you have a BeatRepeat, LiveCut, or other glitch effect on the track with randomized ...

432 Hz Vs. 440 Hz and the Universal Harm...

The reason for changing frequency from 432 to 440 Hz middle A in 1936 by J Goebbels is debatable. Some say it was to accommodate the piano, so the tuning would stay more consistent across the entire keyboard. Others say that it was a Nazi conspiracy in conjunction with Satan. Either way, there is still […]

Mirror Me (Zenon Rec.) Interview...

DJ Story: Great Music! Are you using Ableton?

Mirror Me (Zenon Rec.): Yep. All Ableton. Synthesizing, sampling and resampling. A minimalist approach.

DJ Story: Any plugins?

Mirror Me (Zenon Rec.): Oh yah. FM8, Sylenth, and Massive.

DJ Story: What did you use for the bass?

Mirror Me (Zenon Rec.): Sylenth or UltraBass MX

DJ Story: What about that vocal stutter? Great production. I love the use of panning.

Mirror Me (Zenon Rec.): Yeah. It’s a combo. ;p It’s a vocal sample on top of a grained version of the vocal sample delaying, pitching and slowing down the delay as it goes.
