Ableton Live Tutorial: Using Dummy Clips – Follow Actions

Ableton Live is a flexible tool. Not only is its fairly flawless audio warping and Session View unique to the popular DAW, it’s also got a host of hidden features that go beyond what’s expected of music-making software into the creative and experimental realm. One of those features is Dummy Clips – ’empty’ Session View clips that can be used to control, trigger and manipulate other clips in a project.In the first of three videos, PB expert instructor and Ableton-Certified Trainer Freddy Frogs shows you how to get creative with Dummy Clips including using Follow Actions, triggering effects and automation and more. Watch the first video below and make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel for more tutorials and live events.
