In this tutorial I go over using the Mono Sequencer, which comes with Ableton Live
Suite (Max For Live Package). I use the sequencer to get random melodic rhythms when using synthesizers, and in this tutorial using a audio sample that I converted over to a midi track in a drum rack.
I go pretty quickly through this tutorial (there is a lot to cover). So if you have any questions and feel I missed something please leave a comment below. I will be happy to go deeper into this topic (as it is a bottomless pit of creative ideas).
