TRAPSTYLE x AWAL Present Tutorial Tuesdays Vol 1: Using Sends in Ableton

TrapStyle has always been about pushing the next wave of artist and producer. From spotlighting obcure musicians to providing a free label, we want to give back to the community of artists. Now we aim to help producers who may not be able to afford expensive schools for music production so we’ve joined forces with up-and-coming bass wizard AWAL for some quick tips and tricks that will help you along your path with a few helpful tutorials.

This month’s video brings you the breakdown on using Send Tracks in Ableton. Sends (sometimes called return tracks or return channels) are used for routing 1 or multiple tracks to a send track which normally contains an effect or string of effects. This allows you to send multiple midi and audio tracks to say a reverb or delay for a more cohesive sound. As you increase the amount of the dry signal being sent, the more effected audio you will hear. The benefits of this are that you maintain the dry original signal which is being sent to the master channel as well as the wet/effected signal from your send track. This will also save your CPU a bit of work as opposed to duplicating your original track and throwing the effect on it.

Check out AWAL’s tutorial below for a complete explanation of this technique:
