Rominimal: Sick of drawing Automations? Try the lazy approach without drawing an automation line

Lets be honest:

I’m a lazy rominimal producer.

But sometimes this leads to helpful kinds of hacks that helps to speed up the production process or makes it more handy, or it even can spark some inspiration to use a tool in a new way, at least that’s the case for me and my rominimal productions inside Ableton Live.

So for this weeks video we look into different ways to make a rominimal / micro house track more dynamic without touching the automation line.

Instead, we’re going to use other tools, one specifically that we actually can save as a chain for later usage so we can work faster in the future and don’t need to draw automations for lets say a build up effect to make it bigger during a break and what not.

Sounds good? Lets jump in.
