Spread mono signals to stereo without
using delays, process specific instrument
frequency ranges without affecting other
frequency ranges, and more.
Ableton Live’s Multiband Dynamics
processor can also serve as a three-band
frequency crossover. Creating three
parallel, identical tracks with Multiband
Dynamics, then soloing different Multiband
Dynamics frequency ranges, allows
processing individual frequency bands.
Step 1 Insert the Multiband
Dynamics preset into an audio
track, then click on the B(elow)
and A(bove) buttons to verify
that all thresholds are at 0.00
and all ratios are at 1:1.00.
Step 2 Solo the high-frequency band.
Click the High parameter, then drag
up/down to set the desired highfrequency
Step 3 Solo the mid band. Click the
Low parameter, then drag up/down to
set the mid band’s lower frequency
limit. Solo the Low band to verify the
low band’s frequency range.
Step 4 Right-click in the
track name and duplicate
the audio track. Do this
again to create three
Step 5 Solo the High band for the first track,
the Mid band for the second track, and the
Low band for the third track.
Step 6 Pan each frequency range as desired
(shown), process the tracks individually,
use different send effect amounts for each
frequency band, etc.
Steps 2 and 3: If needed,
readjust the High and Low
parameters so each band covers
the desired ranges.
