In this case, we’re building a gate effect in Ableton Live. Taking a pad sound as source, we are routing the signal into a second audio track (instead of routing it to the master channel). That second audio track plays a "dummy" audio clip - an empty audio file basically. But this dummy audio clip contains the relevant track volume modulation. We can create several of those "dummy" audio clips and draw in different types of volume modulations (e.g.: 16ths, 8ths, etc). That way we can easily switch between different ideas and concepts and speed up the creative workflow.
In this brief tutorial we are showing you how to create a nice "Gate Effect" in Ableton Live 9:
