Hi, Brian Funk aka. AfroDJmac here.
I’ve been performing live with Ableton Live for years now, and I remember the effort I went through to figure out how to use the software for live performance.
So I’ve put together the Ableton Live course that I wish existed when I first got serious! …and sharing all my production secrets.
If you have ever wanted to get on a stage and perform using Ableton, this is the course for you. These ideas and techniques work for a solo artist like myself, DJs, instrumentalists in bands, and sound engineers. I have used Ableton to perform my songs all by myself, to play synths and instruments in bands, to apply effects to other instrumentalists and vocalists, to DJ, and even to provide sound effects and music in theatrical performances. The applications are limitless.
Everything in the course is meant to be practical and useful. I discuss everything from effectively routing your tracks, setting up your sessions in a sensical manner, incorporating live and virtual instruments, setting up controllers, recording your performances, live looping, and even how I have been integrating Ableton’s Push into live performance. I approach every technique in ways that will actually work live and are mindful of CPU usage. There are even tips on how to keep things interesting for your audience.
