Drum Rack Workflow 2.0

Here’s one Drum Rack trick, taken from the course.

As you surely know, the Drum Rack is a powerful device for creating beats. Drag up to 128 sounds into its MPC-style pads, and you’re ready to rock. However, all Drum Rack sounds are triggered and mixed on the same track, which is not always desirable. More often than not, you’ll want to send some elements of your drum kit to separate tracks for greater flexibility when arranging and processing. You may need to give the kick its own compression and EQ settings, add reverb to the clap only, saturate the snare independently, etc.

One (tedious) way to do that, would be to duplicate the track with its drum rack, delete the element you want to isolate from the original MIDI clip and then solo it on the duplicate track. But there must be a faster and better way, right?

In the tutorial below, taken from the Advanced Ableton Live Hacks course, trainer and producer Olav Basoski discusses this topic, and reveals how to greatly speed up the process with one simple trick.
