Quickly Slicing & Chopping Drums In Under Two Minutes In Ableton

A great technique for all Ableton finger drummers to learn is how to quickly divide a loop or sample up into parts and lay them out on a playable drum rack. This slicing can be done in time with the tempo of the sample, or it can even be done based on warp markers that the user sets. Watch as production guru Sadowick uses a Midi Fighter 3D to quickly chop up a track in the video below:

This technique is pretty useful when you’re trying to quickly start constructing your own drum rack soundpacks as well – Mad Zach has a whole tutorial on that here.
