Redline Hookah - My first Ableton Live gig

Post by moodles » Sun Jul 26, 2009 6:18 pm

Here's the mix I performed at Redline Hookah Bar in Austin, TX on July 23rd:

Although I've done many gigs in the past in various rock groups playing guitar or bass, this is my first time doing a solo electronic performance.

For the gig I ran Ableton Live on my Dell Inspiron using a PreSonus Firepod interface and controlling Live with my Roland MC-505 Groovebox.

Hope you like it! As always, I welcome any and all constructive criticism.

That's annoying. I'm not sure why it is doing this - my other songs on there work fine. Could have something to do with the length of the track?

I'll see what I can do to get this working.

Looks like this is working now. I guess it just needed some extra time to process before it could be accessed by everyone.

very jazzy and lots of cool transitions. are you dropping clips on the the scene or recording extra midi stuff? you definitely keep it flowing without any noticable mistakes

Firing off all pre-recorded clips, tweaking a few effects, and mixing levels of various tracks. I'm hoping to add some more improvisational elements, maybe more mixing and matching of clips or maybe some kind of step sequencing so that it feels more off-the-cuff. Hoping that once I get the APC40, I'll be able to be more flexible with this stuff.
