Ableton live set tips, tricks and facts

7 April 2014

Struggle for live!

Many of you already know I’m very busy working on my next live set. The fundaments are real basic. I imported kicks, basses, and drums from several tracks I’ve made in the past year, and I did the same for the synths.
To recall most of the parameters during the set I will be using Kapture by Liine. I tried using Clyphx (a free script plugin for Ableton Live if you do not own Max4Live) but the coding in the midi clips gave me a headache.

Midi drumset with Arduino USB

4 February 2014

Midi drumset with Arduino USB

DrumkitDrumming your own drum patterns instead of programming them gives you a natural way of producing. That’s why I want this setup so badly. At the moment I am fingerdrumming my patterns, but I’m having troubles with the quantization. When I drum on my keyboard it’s never right on time. By using a drum kit I can mimic the feel of a real drumset.

Ben Solar at Stubru Interview and Download

Friday 17.01.2014

What a crazy friday I had last week. While at work on my lunch break I checked facebook and saw a post from “Switch.” A statement in the Belgian edm scene on StuBru.
They asked their fans what track they had to play at the weekend. What I did is what other producers also might do in this situation. I submitted one of my own tracks. It was Meiko – Leave the lights on (Ben Solar edit). After a couple of hours and still at work I suddenly got a telephone from Stijn Maris. He’s the host of the “Weekend” schedule at Stubru on friday night. He’s the man that played Ben Solar at Stubru
