Do you have a melody that lacks a bit of life? Or maybe you want to create a lead-in to a new section with your bass line? In our latest Ableton Live video tutorial, Liveschool trainer George Nicholas takes you through a simple and effective technique taking advantage of Ableton Live’s Chord MIDI device, and most importantly its often over looked velocity controls.
