#LoftLessons: Blending Drum Loops and Programmed Drums in Ableton Live 9.5

We're pleased to introduce ‪#‎LoftLessons‬, a regular tutorial series focusing on production and mixing techniques you can start implementing today. 


For the first lesson, we'll take a look at blending drum loops and midi programmed drums in Ableton Live 9.5. Layering drum loops and breaks over your programmed drums is a great way to add a humanized feel and texture to your music. Today we're going to use Sidechain Compression, Live's newly designed Auto-Filter, some reverb to add movement and spatial fx to a loop from our Funk Essentials Vol. 4 collection.

  • Yeah using ezdrummer massive library and loop loft loops tutorial on using them together would be excellent

  • Great idea, and useful tutorial, for any daw which uses side chaining, but would still be useful to do a specific logic X tutorial, probably including the “instant” logic drummer.. along with the loop loft loops..
