How To Create a Bob Brown Style Delay

Hey guys here is my first tutorial on my new YouTube channel.

In this tutorial I discus how to create a Bob Brown style delay. I'm sure this isn't the official name and I am unsure where it originated but Bob did it best and he own well known for doing this. This technique originated in the analog world but I will show you how to do it in Live.

So what the hell is a "Bob Brown style delay" anyways? Well, this is when you take a send track with a delay and instead of using the feedback on the delay effect, you take and loop the output back into the input (which is what feedback is, basically). So why do this? The main and most apparent advantage of doing this is that you can add effects to your feedback loop, so with every repetition your signal gets more and more processed.

Check out the video below to see it in action and to learn how you can do this in Ableton Live.
