yeah I'm really keen to know too
It would be alot of work to chop all my tracks up into bits to make big sets to impro with
and there's also the fact I spent alot of time writing them as is so in a way I'm happy to just mix them in DJ style
But mostly it's just massively daunting trying to figure out how I want to set it up - there are so many options I dont know how I want it
Yeah, i know how you feel. That is why i chose a different approach.
Instead of trying to fit my tracks in a set, I'm building a Live production template.
It's basically a Liveset where i can change any sound at any time.
Built upon the various ways you can combine dummy clips with routing.
It's still being built. But i already got the drumsection down.
I can change the kicks or other percussion coming from the impulse on the fly.
I can send them to any effect or output i want on the fly.
And everything is mixed, so that i get a constant volume from my beat section.
The synth section is another deal. My main problem there is to get the developers of my favorite soft synths to implement program changes.
But i already have a great synth to work with. ABL Pro is just made for Live usage.
Now only operator and automat need to join the program change party....
Then we got ourselves a kickass Liveset.
I can work around it with resampling though.
But it's just not the same.
The main joy of this modular set is the fact that i can have total control. Or let it run on autopilot.
There's even a couple of fail saves for when is should have to keep my eye on a drunk thats to close to my gear or other unforseen situations.
The main point is. I'm kinda tired of composing elements i have in my head, which then get fitted in song that has allot of common elements of a Live set.
Why not try to fit them together in one big set?
It is still going to take allot of work to finish this set. But i got the main idea down in my head. And i got an arsenal of dummy clips and other various elements at my disposal, to modify anything at any time.
All i need now is macbook pro to give me some more juice
