Introducing ‘Dummy Clips’ into the Performance

For my performance what will try to be implemented are the use of dummy clips. Dummy clips are clips in Ableton, which trigger an effect such as EQ, reverb and compression to a clip that has been created.

The use of dummy clips is used by an Ableton certified trainer called Tom Cosm.

As Cosm states ‘The whole concept behind a dummy clip is that it sits over an audio track, doesn’t actually play any audio whatsoever, but it still allows you to change parameters within something that is on that audio track’.

By including the use of dummy clips in my performance I hope to create a performance that shows off the technology in Ableton and is something that can add to the whole feel of the performance too.
