The blogosphere is all a buzz with people discussing Gerhard Behles’s (CEO of Ableton) recent post on Ableton Quality on the Ableton forum - “We have now decided to: suspend all development towards new features while the whole team joins forces to address the current issues. This effort is... Read more →

Rather than send a greeting card to you all with a yearly letter ;^) - I spent some time yesterday and today making some presets for you with the fabulous new Harmless virtual synth. FYI - I updated my previous post on Image-Line's Harmless to include a mini-review. As I... Read more →

I recently added Percussa AudioCubes to my studio and performance rig. While I’m planning a longer post offering an overview of how AudioCubes work, this is a quick post to mention two applications of AudioCube technology I’ve been experimenting with. First, I’m using them as lights. You can send RGB... Read more →

I've started creating dedicated Blog “Pages” - These are dedicated index pages for topics. They don’t appear in the normal blog post flow and have short URL’s you can bookmark. The first dedicate page is for u-he’s ACE Swing on by and join the conversation. Note you can subscribe... Read more →

In this YouTube Video, I demonstrate how to use Ableton Live 8 and the Velocity MIDI device along with a dummy clip to add velocity to incoming MIDI notes that are a fixed velocity. I illustrate this with the Tenori-On but this concept will work with any MIDI device. Once... Read more →

One Patch Performance Over the years I’ve produced some very detailed step-by-step videos with voice-over on sound design and music technology. To balance things out, I’m launching a new video series called “ONE PATCH PERFORMANCE”. In this new series there will be no voice over just sound and music. The... Read more →

I just saw this on the Ableton Forum: We just released the latest Live 8 version, Live 8.1. The main focus of that 8.1 version is the release for the "Max for Live" product. Additionally, Live 8.1 contains a bunch of bugfixes compared to Live 8.0.9. (A corresponding change log... Read more →

I’ve been sampling since the 80’s when I got an Ensoniq Mirage. I’ve since moved on to software and now use Ableton Sampler, and Camel Audio Alchemy for sample-based work these days.
