MIDI-Controlled Analog Feedback In Ableton Live

I use feedback often in my own productions. In fact the “bat” sounds you here on TTC-001′s track Dark Invader is me holding an SM58 microphone in front of a speaker, sampled and reversed (2.21 in the SoundCloud clip above). The DJ Techtools video shows a hot tip on how to get it all going in Ableton Live with a distortion pedal.

“When sitting in front of a DAW with limitless software possibilities, it can be easy to forget that some of the coolest sounds and effects you can make can come from external effects processors. In today’s video, Mad Zach takes us through one of his favorite hardware wirings, an external distortion pedal setup. ” – djtechtools.com

    Oh woooooooow, I need to get home to try this, I’m a major feedback addict… I use a homemade 6-operator feedback loop for many of my sounds as is, and my distortions are getting dusty!
