Production Tips by astrofunk: Spicing Up Loops with Transposition & Delay
In this week’s production tips one of our favorite newbies on the scene astrofunk will be going over ways to spice up your old loops using transposition and delay-based effects on Ableton Live.
Transposition is normally used for re-pitching samples and loops by moving them in semitones. This means that each time you move the transposition it will shift up (or down) by one semitone, which is one half step on a keyboard. In this tutorial transposition is used in creative way by modulating (automating) it to give the loop a warped and more contemporary sound. Lastly some delays are added on to further spice up the loop.
