Manipulating a Percussive Soda Can Sample using Pad Pressure on Ableton Push #MadeWithLive

Soda-can

I recorded the sound of a pen striking a half-full soda can. I loaded this into Sampler and went to the MIDI panel and mapped "Aftertouch" (pad pressure) to "Loop Length" with a value of -100. Now pad pressure modulate the loop length.

Aftertouch-loop-length

Here is a video of this sound design work in progress – http://youtu.be/Ld5KWyGs9_M.

  1. Awesome Mark!
    Have you messed around with the Push Aftertouch Max for Live Patch by Subaqueous? It gives you much more control over Push’s Aftertouch.
    Cool Idea man!
