How to use glitch in music production

The sonic textures and rhythms of glitch music are great for techno, jazz mixes, or anything with a rhythmic pattern. To get started using the sound in your own production: find an audio file online that is already broken into small pieces (a 10 second clip should work), copy it to your computer's desktop as a .wav extension by right-clicking on the link; open up one track in Ableton Live 9 and load all clips at once onto this first channel while muting its volume slider so they don’t play yet; add another track underneath it like normal but without any effects applied to send only these newly copied sounds through them after being processed by whatever other glitch plugins you have loaded on each respective tracks ; finally adjust the volume of the clips so you can hear them.

It is important to be able to use glitch in music production. Glitches can create synthetic elements and add texture, as well. Create interesting melodies by experimenting with different types of glitches that are available for your DAW or VST plugin: sample offseting (also known as "cut-up"), zapping noise, time stretching/compression effects like reverse delays or extreme vari-speed changes on the pitch wheel; loop chopping using crossfades at various frequencies; dinging a sound's attack and decay shortening it drastically without affecting sustain level).


Potential Examples: The glitch is a sound anomaly that has become popular as of late. It's used by musicians and producers alike for various effects, including dance-able transitions or drum fills. There are some basic guidelines you should follow when using the effect; make sure it doesn't come at an inappropriate time (such as during someone speaking) and don't overuse it like your favorite song on repeat!
