UC-33 & ABLETON.....
« Thread started on: Jul 20th, 2009, 05:46am »

just thought i'd start a thread...... maybe let feezy and anyone else give the lowdown on how they utilise ableton and their controllers in dj/live sets.....

I'm a CDJ man myself but am interested to know how ableton is used to others

(p.s. ive been away for ages)

And I don't mean to hi-jack this because I genuinely like to learn more about MIDI controllers and how they work with Ableton but what's the deal with that new Akai APC40 or whatever? That thing looks nuts.

I use korg nanacontrols live and a BCR2000.

Volume and faders etc....for what you think they do.

Beatpads for turning on effects / stutters and samples (i have diferent samples load with different scenes)

BCR2000 to edit effects parameters and other parameters not covered by the volume controller.

i click all my tracks lol....

yeah i click all my tracks too. i'm sort of a firm believer of keeping things as simple as possible. the more things you bring to the game, the more chance there is for something to go wrong.

good point, but a mouse can't be more than one place at a time. i just got an apc40 and it's imo the most logical extension to using ableton.

i'm a big fan of setting up multiple clips per track, each basically being the main sections of the song. these are essentially my cue points. makes for a very clear representation of what you've got.

my apc40 is key for jumping around into the songs and making for very clean transition... ie one clip could be a track outro looping and another the start of a buildup midway into another track. cue em up at the same time, and it should be a very smooth mix. this way you never have too much going on at once!

my big push for ableton over say serato or cdj's is that you get an immense amount of added control for your mixes. the only major downfall is having to warp everything, and how much you enjoy prepping for a set.

I think I am the 'simplest' DJ out there. I DJed one party through RCA cables and just used the keyboard on my laptop. Everyone still had fun. I saw one DJ use Traktor PRO and he didn't even beatmatch, just moved the crossfader with his mouse....Virginia is got a long way to go....
