Live looping with Ableton Live, a DSI MoPho, an Akai MPD26 and APC20, a DJ TechTools MIDI Fighter 3D, and three iPads running PPG Wavegenerator, Lemur, and Animoog. An iConnectMIDI is sending and receiving MIDI notes from Animoog to MIDI clipslots in Ableton Live. Bass from the PPG app is being looped with Ableton’s looper plug-in, controlled by Lemur. All loops are recorded live, nothing was pre-recorded.
Ever wanted to find out how to create that effective glitch bass sound in Massive, then check this tutorial out:

Using Ableton Live as a host. Tutorial by Vespers, Certified Ableton Trainer.
Pasto is a multi-touch 32 step sequencer suite built in Ableton, TouchOSC and OSCulator.

Here’s a nice new video from Cranda11, check it out:
Having a bit of improv with some new kit. The bassline is done with the original MeeBlip; there are four two-measure MIDI clips in Ableton, and I’m randomly switching amongst them using follow actions. All drum and percussion sounds were created on a Yamaha TX81Z, then imported to and edited in the Maschine software.
Gear used: MeeBlip, MeeBlipSE, Native Instruments Maschine Mikro, SammichFM, DSI TETR4, Eventide Space, Eventide TimeFactor. Recorded with Ableton Live in one pass of live improv.
Little Phatty running through Corpus effect:
“I randomly play around with Corpus settings. The Little Phatty “patch” is unchanged throughout. It’s simple on “Calibration” with the filter wide open and just a single saw oscillator enabled. Towards the end of the video I get close to a “talking bass” kind of patch (hence the “pseudo”.”
Moog Little Phatty Stage 2
An iOS jam using NodeBeat on an iPad 2, SoundPrism on an iPod Touch, and Lemur on an iPhone 4. Audio is passing through a PreSonus 1818VSL into Ableton Live, and Lemur is wirelessly controlling effects in Ableton. All audio is from NodeBeat and SoundPrism, and the tempo-sync’d delay on the drums is NodeBeat’s echo.
Octatrack sequencing the revolution, sylenth1 and collision while providing the drum sounds. Minimal techno/acid jam.

There’s a new beta of Live supporting Mac OSX Lion.
After more than a decade of obsession over granular synthesis, Robert Henke aka Monolake releases his signature Granulator for Max for Live. Get the instrument for free here: http://www.ableton.com/granulator
Through April 2011, save big on Suite 8 and Max for Live: http://www.ableton.com/maximized
Note: The Monolake Granulator requires Ableton Live 8 and Max for Live.
Liine has released a free Max For Live device, Kapture, that was originally created for Richie Hawtin’s Plastikman Live tour.
The sounds and sonic signatures in Plastikman Live are heavily reliant on complex configurations of sends, returns and feedback loops, as well as combinations of instrument and effect parameters. Liine’s challenge was to build a system to manage this huge number of parameters in a live scenario.
Kapture is the solution that they came up with. Similar to a preset management system for the whole of Ableton Live, it lets you “Kapture” the state of your set.
More info on Kapture:
We’re now very glad to be able to release it to the public and to see how other people use it in performances and in the studio. Kapture is not a polished mainstream product but something developed for a very specific show. However, we think that it’s something that many people will find very useful if they are willing to get their hands a little dirty and tweak it to fit their setup.
We aim to continue releasing bits and pieces like this from the Liine Laboratory, more rough and ready experimental/custom devices and works in progress, alongside the polished, premium products such as Griid.
