    One way would be to use dblue glitch or Lucifer (or combinations of the two.

    I'm not sure if you can get dblue anymore, but pm me and i can send it to you.

    hello mate... i make all my tunes ni ableton, it's fooking sick!

    What i would suggest you do is drop 'breaks' and/or 'beats' into an audio track and cut them up in there using the envelope.

    Ok, easiest way is to double click on the clip in the track, should now show the waveform. there should be a little capital E in the bootom left, click on it to bring up the envelope editor.

    Click on 'volume', and then using the pencil tool and the selection tool you can automate it to get that realy cut up choppy sound!
