Audio Effect Racks are one of the gems of Ableton Live. They allow you to customize your audio processing in slick ways that other programs simply cannot. Yet, many producers are unaware of them. Still more struggle to use them to their full potential. But here’s the lowdown: Audio Effect Racks are not rocket science. In this live stream, Ableton Certified Trainer Ian Gallagher will reveal 7 super-useful power techniques for using Audio Effect Racks like a boss. If you want to learn what makes Audio Effect Racks amazing and why you should use them, join us for this stream.
Why are Audio Effect Racks cool? Most digital audio workstations offer a simple signal chain: sound travels from Effect A into Effect B, and then from Effect B to Effect C, and so on. Sometimes that’s all you need! However, with Ableton Live’s Audio Effect Racks, you can split audio into as many paths as you like, all on the same track. This ability opens up limitless creative doors, especially for parallel processing. You can then use a MIDI surface to control Macro knobs (a key feature of Audio Effect Racks). Simply put: understanding AERs will boost your production and mixing game tremendously.
It doesn’t matter whether you make house, future bass, hip hop, jungle, drill, or any other genre. If you want to use and abuse Ableton Live like a master, you need to know Audio Effect Racks. We guarantee you’ll never look at Ableton Live the same. We hope to see you soon for this fun, interactive, and informative stream.
