We now explore the enigmatic world of "warping" in Ableton. This is the process of pinning audio to a timeline so loops and tracks play in sync.
By the end of this section you should have a clear definition of the following-
How to warp tracks and then how to create loops of these warped tracks.
You should also now be able to play several "warped" tracks together in sync, mixing and matching them in the Session View.
And also you should have a general idea about how to create multiple instances of the same track, warp it and add other beats to create a quick remix.
