If you’re not familiar with Andrew Huang, he’s a Toronto-based musician and producer with a “penchant for working within absurd, self-imposed limitations”, a quirky sense of humour and a very entertaining YouTube channel. In one of his latest Ableton tutorial videos, Andrew showcased 10 uncommon production techniques that he uses in his own music including:

  • Modulation stacks
  • Quantization melodics
  • One-shot sends
  • Using spatial effects
  • Quantization of “random” audio
  • Drums as triggers

Andrew was also part of Ableton’s #LoopAtHome, the software company’s “Loop Music-Making Weekend” in April. The event involved three producers sharing their inspiration to get people started in music and have discussions sharing everyone’s music-making processes.
