Custom MultiBand FX In Ableton Live

Video Tutorials

Welcome back to another exciting instalment in our guest video tutorial series from our resident production guru, Flying Soulo! This time, our man has decided to dive into the virtually limitless creative world of Ableton Live, detailing an easy-to-implement technique for creating your own custom, multiband effects presets.

This provides a much greater degree of control over the input sound, than when applying processing to the entire frequency spectrum at once.
