Ableton Live Tutorial: Global Sidechaining

In the latest episode of our tutorial series, PB course developer and Ableton-certified Trainer Freddy Frogs covers sidechaining. This technique can cover all sorts of factors such as gauge, compression or the auto filter and can be a great tool for creating rhythm between two sounds or for adjusting your mix. In this instance, Freddy takes us through using sidechaining methods to pump the whole track with the kick drum, a useful technique  especially if you are into making music like Hip Hop or Electro. Check out the video above and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more tutorials and masterclasses.
