Stereo timing for Grain Delay

Post by JuSchu » Tue Sep 04, 2018 10:43 pm

Grain Delay is the only delay in Ableton that has not individual stereo control over the timing parameter.
It's a really nice effect to brighten up your sound by setting it to +12 semitones and then putting it into a return channel. It would brighten up the sound even more (well, not technically, but a brighter feeling) if you would have individual stereo control over the timing.
Yes, it's possible to do it with a rack (and I already did it). But that's a workaround for a missing minor change.

Hey, do you mean like the stereo delay or echo where you have a left time and a right time?

If so you can do this via a audio rack.

Have 2 chains, 2 grains delays with the same settings, pan one left and one right. You will will over course have to have one channel/chain slightly delayed.

Thanks for the link. But as I wrote I already did this myself.
I'm just asking for a native solution here.

I wouldn't say it a workaround its an improvement.

What exactly is an improvement? Racks in general? Yes, they are great and make Live really flexible.
Or do you mean the fact that you can make a stereo Grain Delay with racks? That's not really a specific feature of Live, so that specific possibility is not a feature, hence not an improvement from Ableton's side. You could call it an improvement from a third party which enables you to do something with Live it wasn't designed to do. But that's just another way of describing a workaround.
