How you can group tracks in Ableton Live and why
Liam O’Mullane hosts our twelfth episode of our Ableton Live Tutorials series. In the video, you’ll learn how to combine different tracks in your project into one group, allowing you to control multiple channels at once. This is great for instruments like drums, as Liam demonstrates, as you can adjust the overall volume of a multitracked recording. Sending the group to an aux send is made easy, as well as adding effects and adjusting pan.
