Welcome to the 7th episode in our series focussed on using Ableton's Live software for live performance. As you may know many people use it as the basis to live performing in many ways. This series is designed to give you some ideas and pointers in the many ways it is possible to incorporate it into your own live setup.
Tom takes us through the concept of follow actions at both a scene and a clip level, for creating self playing arrangements that can also be interrupted and play in sequence for maximum felxibility.
Your guide through this complex and flexible 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 Lives flexible in-the-box capabilities for certain elements, live input processing and automation.
