In this course, Ableton Certified Trainer Yeuda Ben-Atar demonstrates how to use Ableton Live to its fullest potential in a live performance setting. First, learn how to choose the best MIDI controller to use with Ableton Live, and how to set it up properly to be used on stage. Then dive deeper into how to use MIDI mapping to get the most out of your controllers with Live. Next, Yeuda shares a number of techniques he employs as a live performer, like using cue points, looping, scratching, applying effects, and playing samples. He then shows how to create a live set, including organizing, exporting, and adding instruments and building custom effect racks.
Along the way, Yeuda reveals many live performance tricks using control surfaces and custom MIDI controllers that he's built, plus tips for playing and syncing up with other musicians and recording your live performance.
Throughout this course we have talked about many techniques that you can apply to your own live performances. I have the project file we have been working on opened up, and I've added a few more instruments. I also closed the browser because we don't need it anymore, and it will give us more screen spaces. Before I start my show, I'm going to hit the Global record button in the transport bar so that everything I play will be recorded into the arrangement view. This will allow me to go back later and edit, mix, and export my show as an audio file.
There is one controller I haven't shown you. There is the Power Glove from the original Nintendo, which was the first controller to have a motion sensor. I have converted it into a MIDI controller to navigate between scenes, launch clips, and control effects using finger movements, check it out.
