Privacy Terms. Ableton Forum. Quick links. Basically the problem I have is whenever Im using the drum rack and I load a sample for instance a shaker. I might like a rhythm with differing levels of that one shaker sample to drive the pattern on a bit.

Is there an easy way of changing the level of the sample other than automating the actual sample volume or loading multiple versions of the sample sample at different volumes?

The MIDI velocity editor doesn't seem to affect the level of the sample in any way whatsoever, is there some sort of box I can tick on the drum rack or anything like that? Just so you know I am using Ableton 7. Sorry if this question is one that can easily be solved, its an ongoing thing that's leading me to believe there must be an easier way. Thanks for reading and I'll give thanks in advance for anyone who can assist me in any way Cheers!

Thats exactly the sort of thing I was after I'll give that a shot and if there's any problems I will let you know.

You may also like:. Available as bundle. New in Live Racks can be used to build complex signal processors, dynamic performance instruments, stacked synthesizers and more.

Yet they also streamline your device chain by bringing together your most essential controls. While Racks excel at handling multiple devices, they can extend the abilities of even a single device by defining new control relationships between its parameters.

Racks greatly expand upon the concept of device groups introduced in Live 5. The device groups of any Live Sets imported from Live 5 are automatically converted to Racks. Note that these Live Sets, once saved, can no longer be opened in older versions of Live. By default, the Device View displays only a single chain, but there is actually no limit to the number of chains contained within a track. Racks allow among other things additional device chains to be added to any track.

When a track has multiple chains, they operate in parallel : In Instrument and Effect Racks, each chain receives the same input signal at the same time, but then processes its signal serially through its own devices. Drum Racks also allow multiple parallel chains to be used simultaneously, but their chains process input somewhat differently: Rather than receiving the same input signals, each Drum Rack chain receives input from only a single assigned MIDI note. The entire contents of any Rack can be thought of as a single device.

This means that adding a new Rack at any point in a device chain is no different than adding any other device, and Racks can contain any number of other Racks.

The Macro Controls are a bank of eight knobs, each capable of addressing any number of parameters from any devices in a Rack. How you use them is up to you — whether it be for convenience, by making an important device parameter more accessible; for defining exotic, multi-parameter morphs of rhythm and timbre; or for constructing a mega-synth, and hiding it away behind a single customized interface. See Using the Macro Controls see For the greatest degree of expression, try MIDI-mapping see Just as with track types, each kind of Rack has rules regarding the devices it contains:.

There are different ways to create Racks. Note that if you repeat this command again on the same device, you will create a Rack within a Rack. You can also group multiple chains within a Rack using the same procedure. Doing this also creates a Rack within a Rack. In the Device View, the contents of Racks are always contained between end brackets: Just as with punctuation or in mathematics, a Rack within a Rack will have a pair of brackets within a pair of brackets.

To move, copy or delete an entire Rack at once, simply select it by its title bar as opposed to the title bars of any devices that it contains. Simply select an entry from the list, and Live will select that device and move it into view for you.

As signals enter a Rack, they are first greeted by the Chain List. We will therefore also choose this point for our own introduction. The Chain List represents the branching point for incoming signals: Each parallel device chain starts here, as an entry in the list. Below the list is a drop area, where new chains can be added by dragging and dropping presets, devices, or even pre-existing chains.

Note: Racks, chains and devices can be freely dragged into and out of other Racks, and even between tracks.It features contributions from Ableton as well as some less well known producers.

To finish, we can further tweak the send amount and Reverb parameters to date. The most obvious are time based effects, such as delay and reverb. Another example is parallel saturation, where you can send a different amount of each sample to a Saturator, helping fatten up the drum group.

Using Drum Rack, we can add multiple samples to a pad, allowing one note to trigger multiple samples. The most obvious use of this technique is layering multiple sounds. The benefit of this is rather than having to draw in, for example, 3 identical MIDI patterns, one pattern can trigger all three samples. This is especially useful as you make changes to the pattern, allowing you to change the pattern of all the samples at once.

Notice how there are two claps playing an identical pattern. The includes the Receive, Play, and Choke choosers, as you can see below. First, the second clap in G1 is gone. We can still adjust each clap individually, allowing us to perfectly blend the two. We can set up Drum Rack to randomly trigger one of multiple samples.

This can be used to achieve natural variation over looped sections, randomly generate unique percussion loops, and much more. Below is an example of what this output may look like. While this may seem like a simple pattern to draw in yourself, doing so over the course of a 16 or 32 bar section would take a while to set up. It allows you to copy nearly any value for a simpler on a drum pad to all other drum pads. Now, the volume of each clap will be set to This shortcut works on many of the controls inside Simpler.

Higher values are great for wildly varied fills and sweeps. Each sample in a Drum Rack can be assigned to a choke group, and samples that are assigned to the same choke group will silence the others when triggered.

The classic use of this is to put an open hat and closed hat in the same choke group. Thus, when they are placed in the same Choke Group, triggering one will silence the other. As it is right now, the Open hat plays into the closed hat. Notice how in the later example, the open hat is silenced when the closed hat is triggered. Live allows you to save a Default Preset for nearly anything, including Drum Racks.

If you find yourself using the same sounds or same processing chains with Drums Racks, you can save these parameters to your default preset. For example, you may want to load an EQ8 on to every pad, and set up a few Drum Rack return channels as well. The setup is straightforward. A common technique for processing basses is duplicate a bass, pitch it up an octave, and layer it with the original.

This is used to help the bass come out on cheap speakers via the layerwhile still providing a nice low end via the original. This works with several types of other sounds, from synths to percussion. Ableton Live comes with a range of stock Drum Racks, full of samples at no extra charge.
