Rid­ing with the ’chain on

16:53Rich and Paul have their own per­sonal sam­ple li­braries, and Rich thinks he might have a suit­able ride loop to busy things up a bit, so they use Able­ton Link to au­di­tion it from his com­puter. Hear­ing it in con­text al­lows them to make an in­formed de­ci­sion about whether it’s right for the track, and they de­cide that it works. The ride loop is high-passed and com­pressed with a sidechain in­put from the project’s trig­ger chan­nel, caus­ing it to duck when the kick plays. Be­cause sidechain com­pres­sion can cause click­ing arte­facts, the lads put Live’s Com­pres­sor into Trans­fer Curve View, where they can ad­just the Looka­head time. A Looka­head set­ting of 10ms al­le­vi­ates the arte­facts.
