Producing music using Ableton Live
More often than not, the MIDI velocity value serves its namesake purpose, directly controlling the amplitude of a sound to simulate the fluctuating dynamics of striking an acoustic instrument with different "velocity". It's also sometimes used to achieve the same variable-strike effect by controlling less obvious parameters, like modulating the frequency of a filter and the release time of an envelope for dampening on "softer" hits.
MIDI is one of the amazing tools at the heart of modern music technology, and it's hard to imagine a world without its conveniences. On the other hand, it seems that by default MIDI lacks the kind of natural variations heard in acoustic instruments without the cost of tedious programming. But dig a bit deeper and you'll find that Ableton Live offers producers plenty of efficient avenues for bringing life to the cold digital world. In this article, we'll have a look at a few of them.
You might be aware that Christian Kleine aka Max for Cats is into vintage hardware synths. He's also very much interested in old hardware effects and has a nice collection.He's now used his knowledge and skills to create a free Max for Live effect that emulates vintage spring reverbs.
