Automating Effects on a Live Performance

Post by Caleb Stone » Tue Jul 09, 2019 9:46 am

Hi, I need some advice.
I'm playing an acoustic instrument live - it's around a 4 min section.
I want to have some effects on the sound of the instrument.

Is there a way to automate this in Live, so that I as I play different effects come in?

Cheers

Yes you can, search for Dummy Clips and route your audio through the dummy clip track...

Thanks I'll have a go.
Feels a bit un-intuitive running audio through a clip!

Yeah I know, but when you get it its liberating.....

I learnt it off of Tom Cosm & AfroDJMac if that helps the searching?
