    Default How can i do this?

    How does skrillex do the whole "beatmashing" thing, I don't even know what it's called, at 0:10 in ableton live? I've been trying to figure it out but i have no idea.

    Um. What?

    What song are you talking about? Have you tried the "Beat Repeat"?

    Yuppp. That's the beat repeat. Drop it into your drum track, turn the "Repeat" button on, change the grid settings to your liking, and map the on/off button to a button on your controller or keyboard.

    No problem! If you wanna get crazy with it, map the grid control to a controller dial, and throw an auto filter on there with the frequency mapped to another dial for some crazy combo/build action!

    Yeah I'll do that. I got another question, in the video when he does the beat repeat the song kind of pauses, how do I do that?

    i thought you'd just chuck beat repeat on your master so it'd be like beatmasher 2 in traktor
    thats what it sounds like to me

    Definitely! Master track would mash everything, my bad.

    Change it to "INS" or "Gate", depending on whether you want the audio to pause, or just be silenced while the Beatmashing is going on.
