Triggering automated effects in ableton

Hi!

I was exploring venues on performing live with my Novation SL MkII and found this video by robproducertech


I noticed an interesting filter effect which I believe he recorded and repeatedly triggered throughout the track. If you will watch the video he seems to record it in a clip ( i know this since it is by default that those particular buttons play/record clips) at around 40-41 sec and did a steep cutoff at around 51 sec.

I was wondering if anybody knows how to do this and if you can share?

Re: Triggering automated effects in ableton

I can't watch the video right now, but I'm going to guess they've used dummy clips. Basically you route audio into another track with clips which control automation (of effects or whatever else you care to automate). There's a little written tutorial [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
, or else there should be a few on youtube. Hope that answers it .

Re: Triggering automated effects in ableton

It says he's using looper, which I think is something that comes with Max Live. That could also be it, never used it though, nor do I know about dumby clips. Though since the effect comes in over the clip...

It's almost like he has the effect automated to a single button and when he hits it, dry/wet increases plus sweeps. Not sure how to do that either. I think I've seen a video somewhere on it though.

Bandpass sweep through a reverb, and then bypassing (or turning off, or 0% wetness on) both effects.

looper comes with Live Suite 8, dunno about the lighter versions of Live. Can't contribute more to the thread though.
