Today I want to talk about using dynamic effects that react to other instruments in your track.

I can’t take credit for writing this Max4Live device, because it’s more complicated than I know how to make, but the basic purpose of an envelope follower is to take incoming audio and turn that into a waveform that can express modulation.

For my example I’m going to do something fairly basic and we’re going to distort this pad, but we’re going to have the pad’s distortion react to our drums. I have developed a creative way of routing this effect to achieve interesting results, and you can download this rack as part of this video’s free device.
