Chopping a drum loop, jazzing things up? – Production Techniques Forum

Some of the slicer things (not sure about Live or Cubase, Slicex in FL does) will then let you reverse/pitch shift/timestretch/filter individual slices which can give a whole new feel.

Using a noise gate on a loop is always good fun – the lower you set the threshold the less gets through. You can do all sorts if you split the loop by frequency as well – gate the bottom end and phaser on the hi-hats/tambourine etc

Using the midi generated by the slicer is also a good option – layer up some of the notes with other drums for emphasis.

Loads of stuff you can do.
