Ableton Live PitchLoop89 Masterclass with Robert Henke


This series of videos is a free masterclass on PitchLoop89, a new pitch-shifting delay device introduced in Ableton Live 11.


The two-part masterclass was created with the assistance of Ableton and features Robert Henke, developer of PitchLoop89.


Henke is one of the co-founders of Ableton and co-creator of Ableton Live; is active as a composer and performer with his project Monolake; and has held teaching positions at the Berlin University of the Arts, the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University, the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique (IRCAM) in Paris, and the Studio National des Arts Contemporains – Le Fresnoy, in Lille, France.


Henke was inspired to create PitchLoop89 by the rare Publison DHM 89 pitch-shifting delay from the ’70s. In this masterclass, Henke discusses the unique features of this rare effects unit, how it inspired its software counterpart and using PitchLoop89 for sound design.


In Part 1 of the PitchLoop89 Masterclass, video above, Henke discusses the Publison DHM 89 and how it was the inspiration for PitchLoop89; introduces the features of PitchLoop89, capturing audio and controlling the device with MIDI.


In Part 2, video below, Henke takes a look at using PitchLoop89 as a sound design tool with drums and also at Push integration.



PitchLoop89 is included in Live 11 Suite and can be downloaded directly from Live’s browser. Live 11 Standard users with a Max for Live license can also download it in the browser.
