Recording and Playing Samples During Live Performance

Post by mjwalker » Wed Feb 11, 2015 8:39 pm


As part of our set, we'd like to hook up a microphone that records a sample to Ableton -- then playback the sample using the Push, creating a pitched part that leads into a song. We'd like to do this with an audience member, so we can feature them in the song.

A couple of questions:

Is there a good tutorial teaching how to do this? I couldn't find anything while searching for "recording samples live with Ableton Push" on Google / the forums.

If the audience member doesn't sing exactly on the right pitch, what would be the best way to correct it live?

Thanks so much!
