    I would imagine you are getting a lot of hate for this tutorial but it’s
    honestly VERY helpful, because really i don’t think people really
    understand to do sample FLIPS, especially with something like this. This is
    funny because really people do this with MPCs and you can do this in Drum
    rack, it’s a LITTLE harder to do, this is very very easy and much more
    intuitive.

    Assigning it to a pad seems way more efficient than this shit.. I’m almost
    took a nap during this…

  13. jesse martin says:

  14. Jerry Brevil says:

    Excellent Vid Man. I don’t know if you would be able to help me, but say I
    wanted to map that into the novation Launchpad and work it that way, do you
    know how to do that?

  15. Chad Cooper says:

    this video sounds like a snare drum

  16. BlizzardExtreme says:

    I got ableton, What bass are you using?

  17. sontwisted says:

    what are your thoughts on assigning each of those chops to a pad and
    playing it back manually as apposed to the cut and past method 

  18. MrBsbx says:

    really a good tutorial but you could be a little bit faster with your
    videos. even this is for beginners.

  19. Ryan Reach says:

    Nice info. Ive been chopping it to MIDI and playing samples on the piano
    keys but this methods looks legit, Ill try it out thanks! 

  20. Charles Tryck says:

    Great vid dude thanks. There are so many tutorial videos out there where
    the person giving the video seems to have zero creativity… and they all
    sound and say the same shit. For once I feel like a tutorial didn’t just
    effectively say ‘hit the easy button and make music.’

  21. Fong Shelhiel says:

    thanks so much, do more of these!!;)

  22. Shane Jacot says:

    Yeah Dope man! Thanks for the vid.

    Do you know you aren’t sitting close enough to your microphone? – hence why
    it sounds like it’s gating your voice, because you’re not in its proper
    range. ( Unless you’re gating it manually [which is retarded tbh :P] ).

  27. Benjamin Ramprashad says:

    holy shit, i cried a tear of joy when i saw that you can quantize audio.
    you just earned a subscriber young man: )

  28. Randolph Knackstedt says:

    Awesome video. Thank you for taking the time to put this together. 

  29. Cinnabar says:

    Well I guess I’m not actually as experienced of a user as I thought. I
    picked up a bunch of stuff from this, and I’ve been using Ableton for quite
    a while.

    I cracked up when he said “Did you know you could make RETARDED scratching
    sounds?” Lol this tutorial is great tho. Very fast so if you already know
    something he goes to the next subject soon after. And if you missed it all
    you have to do is go back.

  31. Mike Graham says:

    Ugh. Some much stuffs to apply to my Live sets in the future. Longtime
    Reason user who bought Live to “spice up my DAW sex life.”

    AND I have Max For Live. A WHOLE ‘nother beast within itself. =S

    Great video. Stuff in here that I can’t believe I didn’t realize already,
    and have been using workarounds to do for all this time.

  34. Janne Mannse says:

    I love your voice ! *_*

  35. Карим Шакиров says:

    I really like these types of tutorials because they move so quickly through
    different techniques and show examples. If you didn’t understand a specific
    thing you could easily search it up for further instruction. It’s great
    having a plethora of different creative ways of using Live, all jammed into
    a few minutes with awesome examples!
