LoopLoft released a tutorial video on how to use real drumloops with programmed drums and mixing everything together.
“We’re pleased to introduce #LoftLessons, a regular tutorial series focusing on production and mixing techniques you can start implementing today.”
For the first lesson, we’ll take a look at blending drum loops and midi programmed drums in Ableton Live 9.5. Layering drum loops and breaks over your programmed drums is a great way to add a humanized feel and texture to your music. Today we’re going to use Sidechain Compression, Live’s newly designed Auto-Filter, some reverb to add movement and spatial fx to a loop from our Funk Essentials Vol. 4 collection.
