Unlinked envelopes are one of those extremely powerful tools that most people aren’t aware of until they’re shown what they can do with them in Ableton Live. If you’re into creating some really glitchy effects, using unlinked envelopes can be a really creative way to get some crazy glitch sounds. This video will show you how to use unlinked envelopes to build those crazy sounds you might be looking for. It’s an astonishing video to watch.
You can have one single note that effectively turns into a different sound on nearly every beat. Also really good for live performance if you want to record an audio clip from an audience member and use it to shape a unique sound. Granted I would have my effects already layered out. Again, really creative ideas in this video!
