Hi all! So, I’ve got a pretty broad question here + i’m hoping for a S**T load of replies
Basically, i’m nearing completion of a full length album, which i’m generally pretty stoked with.. only, i’m thinking that i should probably have a live set worked out, or at least have some ideas on how to go about performing live. I have never played live and have NO IDEA about how to go about it
It seems to be the general consensus(?) that Ableton Live is the most versatile and intuitive tool for live performances? So this is what I thnk i’m going to use, other suggestions welcome though! Ive read and re-read THIS awesomely informative post by Ott on how he does his live setup, and i’m thnking something similar, but, er, slightly less comlicated… I’ve had a little play around with Ableton and I’m loving the midi/controller flexibility but im having a bit of trouble working out how to use scenes??
So i guess I’ve got three questions really;
1) How flexible are peoples lives sets in general? i.e can i get away with just “chucking a CD on”, or should i spend more time working out some crazy auxs + routing possibilities for more of a creative flow?
2) Should i be using Ableton Live (i’m thinking 5 or 6 stem tracks..)? If so, any general tips? If not, what instead?
3) ANY + ALL general tips on live performances! annnnyhting you can think of!
