ABLETON : What is a dummy clip?

“In this free tutorial, Berklee Online instructor and Ableton Certified Trainer Brian Funk, aka AfroDJMac, demonstrates how to prepare for a live performance using Ableton Live. Once you’ve built a track, figured out your effects, you’re ready to assign some “dummy clips” to your Ableton Push.

Dummy clips are audio clips that don’t contain audio information, just automation, which help you put effects on various sounds within your production”.


I really love this tutorial made by Berklee Online ! It’s a cool trick if you are playing live and i had no idea it was possible to use dummy clips in Ableton. It can be a bit complicated for beginners but once you have understood how it works, it will save you a lot of time.
