Ableton Live Video Tutorial: Beat Programming – Routing MIDI to Drum Rack

In this new video tutorial we take a look at an alternative way of working with Ableton Live‘s Drum Rack. With all of the great instruments and effects that come stock with Live, Drum Rack may be the most powerful of the bunch. Using the flexible routing system in Live, it is possible to route MIDI information to Drum Rack and get the best of both worlds: the practical separation of tracks with all of properties of the clip, and the power of Drum Rack and its own internal options. The lesson to be learned is that the combination of old ideas is how new ideas are born, so take a fresh look at the tools at your disposal and see if there’s anything new that you can add to the table for other Live users to enjoy.

Our music production program is custom-tailored to fit your musical style. You can choose from several Digital Audio Workstations including Ableton Live, Logic Pro, or Propellerhead’s Reason.
