Ableton Workflow Tutorial - Developing Riffs Part 1
Since our ‘Black Friday’ Sale we have received a huge amount of requests to see more inside sneak peeks of our video pack courses. So as a little Christmas present to all of you, we have decided to do a few more over the holidays. This week’s video is taken from our ‘Loop Expert’ course and focuses on how to develop your musical riffs in your tracks. If you have a huge sample library (like me) and want to know how to make the most of it, this video course is just for you.
One of the challenges of using loops from your sample library is often they can feel quite static, limiting and difficult to develop. With melodies, riffs, basslines etc. it is easy enough to come up with variations that are interesting, but actually developing these ideas to use throughout your track can feel tough as we feel we have limited options compared to using live instruments / synths etc. In this video I show you some cool ways to progress your melodies and add new layers that can help you to expand your ideas and finish your tracks.
In this video we cover:
1. My workflow for developing your riffs and melodies
2. How to effectively layer samples to create an interesting harmony for your riff
3. How to manipulate Ableton’s warp settings to create interesting timbres, tones and effects
4. Slice up audio and emphasise certain notes in your riff, moving off the quantize grid to add extra groove
5. Apply simple processing to add movement and interest to your melodies and riffs
