Thanks Jesse! I used a combination of Airplanes/MotorCycles/Simple analog Oscillators with fast LFO. All sent through a erosion(noise)/vocoder/chorus/eq/limiter chain. I kept the chorus effect 48% wet/dry to have some of the original texture bleed through as to make it somewhat recognizable.

The timeline is definitely hard to get your head around first.. its just awkward compared to other daw packages such as PT/Logic/Nuendo...The best thing is to just dive in head first and see if you can weather the storm. A quick look at the hot keys went a long way.... especially for zooming in and out. I just used the -/+ on the numpad. It served a lot better than dragging down/up above the timeline.

What Ableton features did you use most?
Did you also use Clip Automation? What where the advanteges to protools?
Most of the time I use Ableton Rewire to protools.
I have to try to do post stuff in ableton as well.
Tell us more!
I really enjoyed using the clip automation.. specifically Transpose. It was EXTREMELY useful in helping make the bikes simulate the increase/decreasing in speed. I used the TONES algorithm for most of these setups.. but on some of the doppler whiz-by's i used complex pro with a short grain amount.
I really think the only advantages to pro tools are the compatibility with other studios (though you can always bounce stems /rewire record to PT)... Nudging (HUGE!!)...and a Frame based grid/timeline.
I'm going to post some sound examples of some of the layers/processing as well as screen shots showing the fx chains... automation lanes. I'll have this up in the next couple days. Busy at work doing big robots!
Thank you everyone for checking the vid out and the many kind words!
