    Using simple delay, the part of a clip/sound the delay is applied to suffers an audio loss, and the echoes of the sound suffer a similar degradation. It sounds slightly muffled. I can compare a sound back to back, without the effect and with the effect, and there is a noticeable loss to the sound once the effect is applied.

    I’ve asked a few ableton teachers and support forums but can’t find an answer.

    Any ideas???

    Nice Tips! In addition be sure to try the time option. While in re-pitch mode , changing slowly the ms number makes much smoother transitions and really cool and glitchy sounds
