Many devices inside of Ableton Live have multiband capabilities, particularly the Filter Delay and Multiband Dynamics plug-ins. In this video, Berklee Online course author Loudon Stearns demonstrates how to create different frequencies using Ableton. By sweeping the frequencies in the Audio Effect Rack, and adjusting their Hi, Mid, and Low ranges, we hear different lows, mids, and highs in our drum sounds. The difference in timbre and the effect of delay makes for a more sophisticated recording. You can even use these effects on vocals! Hopefully this video will help you develop your own general purpose multiband processing effect rack, which will allow you to place any devices you like on the lows, mids, and highs of your signal. When working with multiband processing, it is best to start with a complex signal that has wide spectral content. A full drum groove is a particularly good place to start with multiband processing.
