RAW – April 2009 – Ableton Live in full effect


April 23rd, 2009

No comments

I recently bought a Mac Book Pro. I upgraded to Albeton 8 and I’ve been spending some serious time in the studio.  I’ve always DJed using either turntables or cd players.  I’ve used CD players for the last two years along with Serato.  I really enjoy Serato because it opened me up to play any and all genres.  In fact, I don’t even think about genres any more, I can just mash songs together and see how they come out.

With my move to Ableton, I’m really just trying to push my boundaries and self imposed limitations.  Live allows you to look sections of a track, skip parts all together and really dig into each and every track and make it your own.  Re-Edits are super easy, pretty much every track because a re-edit.  I can lay a 8 bar loop of an electro track on top of a deep house track and it becomes a whole new song.

The mix is by no means perfect and I’m sure no more or less people will like or dislike it.  The point is that I’m trying to keep myself interested and motivated in djing by exploring technology.  I’m looking forward to the APC-40 and playing with Ableton in front of people.
