Ms. Pinky Revised from Mastah Lee on Vimeo . What should DJing in Ableton Live look like? How could conventional vinyl cueing and scratching be integrated with the Live environment? Serato and Ableton gave us one possible answer to that question last week with The Bridge. Their solution: use your Serato DJ set normally, and simply sync the transport of Ableton Live when the two run simultaneously.
AfroDJMac is back this week with something for Synthtopia readers – an 808 rack for Ableton Live : This week I have a rack that is made from an 808 Kick drum sample. It allows you to play the 808 bass drum as a pitched instrument, so that it stays in tune with your tracks. It can also be used for bass lines, and, at higher octaves, makes a nice electric keyboard type instrument. In the video I go over how I made it, so that you can apply the technique to any sample, and then I dissect the individual components of the Ableton rack.

You are probably used to creating your beats, bass and synth sounds, then creating a reverb bus channel, and applying some of that reverb effect to your individual instruments. Sure, this is a nice way to create a room effect that is coherent amongst your instruments and sounds, but what about using some creative techniques with reverb? I am going to show you how to use reverb a little differently to create interesting processing effects with your tracks. I will be using Ableton, but these same principles can be applied in other DAWs as well. Step 1 – Side-chain Reverb An interesting effect is to create that side-chain “pumping effect” with the reverb.

To do this, simply select the instrument track in the “audio from” field on all four audio tracks.
