  • Topic: Live Looping

Live looping is a technique used by musicians to create music in real-time by rapidly looping or repeating recorded phrases or sounds. This technique has been around for decades, but began to gain more popularity with the introduction of digital audio workstations, such as Ableton Live, in the early 2000s.

Live looping is appealing to musicians as it enables them to create complex songs and live performances in real-time, without relying on meticulously programmed arrangements. Ableton Live looping workflow includes editing, Warping & Time-stretching of loops, transitioning into different sound effects, and manipulating loops in real-time using MIDI controllers and other devices.

In 2017, Jay de Large held an informative and captivating lecture on this topic, offering profound insights on his setup and playing techniques using Ableton. He engaged the audience with his vast knowledge on the subject, and provided exceptional insight into the world of live looping and controllerism.
