Will Marshall has released a comprehensive performance template for Ableton Live, designed for the Push 2, but equally usable with the Push 1, Launchpad Pro, APC40 or any other grid-based controller for Live.
Over the last few years I’ve done a bunch of work building live performance systems for jazz musicians, singer-songwriters, DJs, hip-hop artists, and my own project: Coma Cartel. I’ve learned a lot about using Live with bands, as a solo artist, and as a synthesist.
With this template I’ve taken all the techniques I’ve developed and put them into a cohesive whole: designed for a seamless blend of electronic & live performance, and completely useable while playing instruments or singing. The whole thing is built without any custom scripts or MIDI mapping, and it ships with a bunch of material from Coma Cartel that’s used for demonstration.
Live Performance Template features
- Decks for DJing and stems performance.
- Vocal looping & processing.
- In-depth FX.
- Extensive drum racks.
- Hot-swappable MIDI instruments.
- Hot-swappable guitar tone presets.
The template is available for purchase for $20 USD.
All the techniques used are broken down in a series of free tutorial videos that should help artists learn to reproduce the template.
