This is a question I've seen pop up over the internet again and again and I thought I'd shed some light on the topic. While there's a bypass button in some other DAWs that allow you to simply temporarily turn off all effects on a specific track, this feature doesn't exist in Ableton Live. There are ways to achieve a bypass fairly quickly though and in this video I'm showing you the three fastest ones.


If you have questions or suggestions or just ideas how else to achieve a bypass effect, please leave a comment below.
