In this video tutorial, Joshua Casper shows you how to get started making a live performance set in Ableton Live with the help of Niche Audio.
Ableton Live is a production powerhouse, however it has “live” right in it’s name. Some people never venture into that aspect of the program because the sheer thought of it may seem daunting. It doesn’t have to be though. Joshua Casper will show you how to get start and get great results quickly and easily to give you that boost of inspiration to keep you going until you have a full hour of music you can play live.
Niche Audio has many Ableton Live project packs that you can grab at Loopmasters.com. These are essentially full tracks laid out in 1 to 4 tracks in Live, ready to go. Joshua uses the pack called Post Dubstep & Future Garage, but that is by non means the only genre you can find over there.
Check out Niche Audio Ableton Live Packs on Loopmasters.
Joshua will show you how to combine the projects into one mega project file where you can start to sculpt your live performance. He will also show you how to customize the intros and outros of each song to make your DJ transitions smooth as silk. Once you get the hang of these techniques you will be well on your way to a full live show.
