In this video tutorial, Dubspot instructor and course designer Evan Sutton takes a look at Ableton Live 9’s new Glue Compressor effect, which allows users to “glue” together of the elements of a drum part or an entire track.
One of the new effects in Ableton Live 9 is the Glue Compressor, which can help “glue” your mix together and create a more uniform sound. This new device was created in partnership with analog software modeling experts Cytomic, who have created a plug-in that aims to re-create the effect of an SSL bus compressor, which Evan explains “has been known to glue mixes together.” This compressor differs from the regular Ableton compressor in that it’s intended to be pushed a bit harder and used on multiple tracks at once, adding some punch without losing the sound’s character. In this video Sutton demonstrates how this new effect sounds on different sorts of audio tracks in Ableton Live to give you a sense of what this new compressor can do.
In this video Mitch Lee, Ableton Certified Trainer and Course Developer at Beat Drop walks through building a track while showcasing some of the new features in Ableton Live 9.
Please note. The version of Ableton Live used in this video is a Beta version which may offer features or workflows that differ from the release version when it comes out.
