Sometimes it is a huge step from a great 8 bar loop to a complete song. Subtractive arrangement is a neat method to build the foundation of your next track with some loops. In the video below Danny Lewis uses subtractive arrangement for a new track in Ableton Live. First he copies the loops over the entire length of the track. Then he makes easily a new song by taking snippets of clips away.
