    Djing with Live
    For me, it was dissapointing that Bill never went into djing at all. it was bassically "Dj's should lean to produce", yeah i love production but sometimes i want to rock a party too. Could anyone clear up a few things that have been buggin me... Firstly, How to set up good templates for djing Secondly, Warping more complex tracks. Of course 4/4 house is going to be easy to warp, but im finding thing with chaotic drums (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=im2vh2aOjfQ) or very sparse drums (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QVadIgPglM) very tricky. Also how to work stuff that wasn't synched with midi into a set of stuff that is Any help would be really appreciated. Peace

    +2 "Live" performance is what makes Ableton different than any other DAW and the only reason it's notable IMO. If I want to write a song I go to logic. If and when you do make a tut please don't go simple, I.e. "load a track to this clip, load an eq, this is a crossfadurrrr....." but actual LIVE knowledge. Id like to learn abletons serious live abilities, using scenes and clips to trigger automation and effects, different methods of performance (stems of tunes, loops or chopped up releases)

    Have you guys watched many of my Live TNT series videos? [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/live8303[/url] I cover a lot of live performance techniques. I do stay as genre-neutral as possible though, in order to speak to all users. In the next couple days I'll be posting some live looping tutorials that I did with Gavin Castleton (check this older video - [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCtGNX9JHOE[/url]). Also @CircleofPsy - for one of the final TNT videos, next month, I will be warping a capellas, multi-tracks and other tricky stuff. BUT - I am finishing up the year long TNT series next month. So maybe I can do a "Performing with Live" series as my next Ableton Tutorial. In that I could get more specific into Looping, DJing, Live Remixing, etc... - Brian Cass (Overclock, Inc)

    I certainly have and they're great. But they dont touch on what people are doing now on Live. I've downloaded a few .als templates and it's INSANE some of the things in there. I'll look back over that series but I watched it and I learned alot, just not anything like that.

    Thanks! It is a monthly series, so there are at least 4 new tutorials every month. Although, it is almost complete now (12 month series that started in October). And again I did touch on some performance topics, but I think it would need to be a dedicated series in order to get into the deeper stuff and build on ideas from chapter to chapter. I'll share this thread with the powers-that-be and maybe we can get a new series together with a DJ/Performance focus.

    hey. One is from Tom Cosm, world known new zealander and ableton trainer. the link is only available for subscribers tho. just search tom cosm. the others I'll have to find. all files I found were googled. ill try and post back or upload the ones I have. Speaking back on the TNT course mentioned you do touch on some of what I was talking about with the section Dummy Clips for use with an LFO. Funny you actually mention doing more videos on that subject. Some of these set designs are ridiculous…. I’m talking well over 10-20 aux channels routed differently alone, not counting what they’re doing with clip separation, specific aux channel for live looping of playback material in diff time signatures, Session design, like editing the session view by using dummy clips in a way that allows smooth transition from song grouping to song grouping, with different parts mapped out... Some sets are designed to take songs apart, others designed to play self made songs in a DJ fashion. they really are quite elaborate. ill see whats up for download now...

    Yea, there are a ton out there. Some are controller specific, but still good to check out if you're looking for ideas. The peeps I know that have the best goodies would be Cosm, Moldover, Ean Golden, ill Gates.
