Technology in Worship
Jun 2011 20

One of the ways that we at i61 have tried to unlock some creativity in our worship times have been through the use of click tracks and loops.

Loops and click tracks have massively improved our tightness as a band as well as supplementing our sound with instruments and textures not available to us live. We can now use string parts, multiple electric guitar parts even double up on drum or percussion.

We use a customised set up which includes Ableton live and the ability controller by Youn Works.

If you would like a copy of my Ableton template you can make a donation. Once you’ve donated you’ll be directed to a link to download my ableton template.

Here are two videos explaining our setup and how we run loops. The first is a general overview with the second a more detailed look at the ableton template we use.

  1. [...] A few people have emailed or tweeted to ask where we get our loops. I haven’t created any loops from scratch but I do edit and tinker with them. I usually use Logic to record any parts needed or to mix and edit Mp3s. I use Reason to edit midi and use the great in built sounds. I then trigger live using Ableton Live. My setup is explained here. [...]

    This was a huge help!

    Thanks so much for posting!

    I would love to get those 7 minutes loops in each key…did you make those or where could I find them?
