In this video tutorial, Mad Zach demonstrates how you can sample the Internet, using Audio Hijack, and turn it into an Ableton Live Drum Rack.
Sampling audio introduces new copyright issues into both your work and live performances – so stick to sampling your own sounds or be informed.
This movie is the first episode of a three part tutorial that looks at how to build a drum rack preset, with your own samples, in Ableton Live.
In the first video, three instrument racks are combined into one drum rack, which is triggered using a MIDI clip on the track, and mapped in such a way that the macros controls can be used to switch the kick, hat and clap in the break.
