If you don't change up the tone a little it just blends with the rythm and to me it sounds like I just changed up the chords or something.
I was thinking more of how to do it without using the faders ( if possible at all). Our hearing is frequency sensitive, so 2 sound sources could be at the same SPL but will be perceived as having different loudness if they are occupying different frequency range. I have tried this method by have no success yet. So, I was thinking if this could really work.
