Learn Power App | Ableton Live 8

By Craig Anderton | July 1, 2011

OBJECTIVE
Alter a clip''s groove by applying a groove template.

BACKGROUND
Groove templates alter velocity and timing within a clip, thus giving it different possible “feels.”

STEP 1

In Live''s Library, open the Grooves folder.

STEP 2

Open a folder containing the kind of groove you want, then drag the groove on top of a clip to impart its feel to the clip.

STEP 3

To audition grooves quickly, first click on the clip''s Groove Hot Swap button in Clip View.

STEP 4

A “hot swap” button shows up next to the selected groove in the Grooves folder. Click on the button to select the groove.

STEP 5

For even faster auditioning, use the computer keyboard''s Up/Down arrow keys to step through the grooves; hit Enter to audition the selected groove.

STEP 6

To write a groove''s characteristics to a clip, click on the Commit button.

TIPS

  • Step 5: You can also open and close folders within the Grooves library using the Enter key.
  • Step 6: This affects only the instance of the clip in the project, not the original clip stored on disk.
