Free Weekly Ableton Live Rack #1- “AfroDjMac Laptop Feedback”

One of the things I want to do with this site is to share some of the tools I use to create music.  If you are an Ableton Live user, this post is for you.  I created this synth using a sample of my laptops speakers belting out a screeching feedback from the internal microphone.  As unpleasant as the sample itself sounds, it makes for a pretty atmospheric and dreamy sounding synth.  Download the Ableton Live set and from there, just save the instrument rack into your Ableton Library.  I hope you guys enjoy this and please let me hear any music you make with it!

    Ableton Live 8: Nowadays if you’re an artist looking to record or perform music you’re probably a lot like me, a newbie impressed (And confused) by the vast array of choices you have your disposal. So with this review I’m going to focus on new people and getting use to and using Ableton Live 8 (Live).

    First thing to note a full live demo can be downloaded [...]it is a 14 day not limited functionality trial. And that is cool if you want to get started and playing around with this powerful software. I recommend doing that and following along with some of the videos that I will point out below.

    Now I needed to form drumbeats for a buddy of mine’s project and I had live 7, but I downloaded live 8 because I usually like to have the latest software and features. Also Ableton as extensive video tutorials which I’ve found amazingly insightful and helpful on YouTube.

    On YouTube Hudon Singletary an Ableton training rep, has 22 video tutorials that gets you inside this amazing program. check them out and follow along using the demo you will definitely be stoked!

    Are looking to make drumbeats? If so live has a very cool feature that allows you to make an 8 pad drum machine that you can trigger using ASDFGHJK. you can also grab your samples from any loops you already have, when I saw this in the following video I was blown away. It was simple and easy!

    I also found the tour of live video to be very helpful in navigating the user interface. Now I had seen the live interface before and I have seen other mixing programs and felt intimidated. But after watching this video I had better understanding of how to move around the program freely.

    I personally have been using live 8 for about four days and I was able to mix a drum track for my buddy that he was happy with, and so was I. Live has made it possible for us to finish his CD without having to find and studio record a drummer at saving us a few thousand dollars.

    Now I used to use acid Pro a few years ago so I am semi-familiar with loop-based music creation (made 20 tracks or so), so that may have made my interactions with live a little easier to pick up. But I’m amazed at how quickly and easily live is to learn.

    Another cool feature of live is that it has textbased tutorials inside the program. This is something I have never seen implemented in such a way as to be functional and not intrusive. So basically when you’re pointing at something or clicking a track there are text boxes in the lower left-hand corner in on the right-hand side that will tell you what you can do in those areas. They were amazingly helpful and gave me answers to questions I had an even asked yet. very very cool!

    being a newbie to live I also wanted to add that I have seen this program mentioned by many performers as a tool they use in live performances and home recording (imogen Heap & Venus Hum) And I am starting to understand why they like it so much.

    All in all this program is an amazing piece of software,Very solid and a nice user interface. I use Adobe products like after affects and premiere Pro, and wish Adobe had a program like live but their stuff is nowhere close to as intuitive and easy-to-use.

    if you’re like me once you try live for 14 days you’re going to buy it because it is that easy to use! so my encouragement is check out the tutorials while having the trial opened you will definitely pick it up very quickly!

    Once my buddy’s CD is completed I will post a link to his CD in this review so you can hear Live at work.
