What's the Best Ableton Live Warp Mode for DJs?

The best warp modes for DJs & music collections

There is one question that has been floating around the internet for an age, and people debate it over and over again -- that is: what's the best Ableton Live warp mode for DJs using Ableton Live?

Interestingly, Ableton Live has had many releases, even a warp engine revamp, but those efforts just can't seem to clear up the burning question!

So, what is the best warp mode in Ableton Live for every DJ? Is it even possible to answer this question? I'm going to try!

Why Edit Timing Before Reworking Older Music?

Edit timing of older musicWe work with a lot of newly released edits of original older music from the 70s and 80s. Usually a client asks us for help to beat grid, time edit or warp them to get them to behave in their DAW or DJ software. After further investigation, we almost always find that the producer of the new edit hasn't edited the timing of the original track that they have sampled or the resulting samples that are in their shiny new release. This always results in a track with a drifting tempo that won't automate alongside other tracks easily and needs BPM editing work.

Why won't some music fit into a beatgrid in DJ software?

Editing the timing of all music to automate in DJ software

DJ software has developed into such a sophisticated solution that it is changing the way we all look at DJing. When I first started mixing in the 90's, I used 1210s; these were fun, but also a lot of work. There was a constant need to press and push records to maintain the near perfect alignment of both tracks for smooth mixes. You could get it so that the track you were bringing in needed a minimal amount of manipulation during the actual mixing process, but that would take time and effort. The result of this way of mixing is, of course, the development of a finely tuned ear for lining up tunes, but the down side was the limited available time to think about the actual performance in the moment.

Where did we come from?

We're proud to have launched our first version of As both Warping Ableton and WarpMyMusic have references to Ableton Live, we've found the names were becoming increasingly confusing to our clients, as we offer a much wider range of music services than just Ableton Live music preparation.
