Video: Total misuse of a ping pong delay - scratch effects

Post by Michael Hatsis » Tue Apr 14, 2009 9:37 pm

I made this video a few days ago, but the thread title is inspired by Dennis DeSantis' recent Live 8 videos.

The Video shows how to emulate a scratch-like effect in Ableton Live 8 using the new delay Modes available in the Ping Pong Delay. This is not meant to replace vinyl, nor will it produce a totally authentic sounding scratch sound, but it is a Ableton Live only solution and is a nice add on to your effects arsenal - especially for Live performance. Video is accompanied with a Template Live set.

Fracking awesome. This would be cool with follow actions also. I couldnt get the preset to download though. but its easy enough to make anyway. Good thinking man, simple and highly effective, just the way i like it

Fixed the link. Theres some goodies in there as well. A nice drum rack, a big bass patch, and some scratch sounds...

I imagine this would be really cool with dummy clips controlling the scratching.
15" PB 2.5 Ghz, 4 Gig RAM, 750 GB HD, Live 9 still no cue points or program change messages?!?. Doesn't do shit.

You gotta leave something for the human to do, No?

But yeah, I was working on a track where at the end of a part i used the scratch thingie on the master track( with automation ) to segue into the next section. sounded pretty cool...
