Multi Band Effects: 2 Minute Ableton Live Tip #30
Video Tutorial on Creating Multi Band Effects in Ableton Live 9
Multi Band Processing allows you to separate certain frequencies and apply effects only to certain portions of the sound. One practical use might be to add distortion to the higher frequencies of a bass track, but leave the lowest frequencies untouched. This way your bass stays strong and present, while the higher frequencies can be mangled and distorted to your heart's content. The possibilities are literally limitless and they can be used to create some really dynamic and interesting effects. Fortunately for us, Ableton Live makes it pretty easy to do, so we don't need to invest a ton of money on 3rd party plugins that specialize in this department. Check out the video below as I show you how to make your own Multi Band Effects.
