Welcome to our series focussed on using Ableton's Live software for live performance.Your guide is experienced performer and Ableton Certified Trainer Tom Lonsborough.
Instrument Racks are a powerful way to combine both internal and external instruments, samples with effects, MIDI splits and layers and macro control. What you may not know is that its possible to setup multiple Instrument Rack configurations within a single rack and switch between them using chains. Tom shows us just how to do this - highly recommended
Your guide through this journey is Tom Lonsborough - he's a member of the live act 2 Billion Beats and also an Ableton Certified Trainer working out of the Manchester MIDI school, a very knowledgeable guy when it comes to working with Ableton Live.
When performing with the trio 2 Billion Beats, Tom uses Live to allow him to combine live electronic instruments, (Moog Minitaur, Dave Smith Tetra 4, Vermona DRM MKII, AcidLab Bombass) with Live's flexible in-the-box capabilities for certain elements, live input processing and automation.
