Create Drum Grooves with Live 10's New Echo Device


Level: Intermediate to Advanced  //  Watch Time: 12min

In this video for ADSR we take a look at how you can use the noise section of Live 10's new Echo device to create interesting drum patterns by modulating the noise amount using another new device in Live 10, the Shaper.

Learn more about using the new Shaper MaxForLive device here.

Note: You will need Ableton Live 10 Suite to use these devices.

  • The new Echo device in Live 10 has a built-in noise generator with a morphable texture.
  • We can module the noise amount using the Shaper MaxForLive device to create rhythms.
  • Emphasise certain elements of the noise using the noise's Morph control and an EQ to create different kinds of drum sounds.
  • Use this technique to add a different flavour of rhythmic parts to your production.
