Together Maschine and Ableton are a powerful combination for production and performance. Cellitti starts by showing us how to load the Ableton Live template that can be accessed via Maschine's hardware or Native Instruments bundled Controller Editor software. He then goes into detail of how Maschine can be used to trigger clips, scenes and FX as well as control other parameters such as individual track volume. After this, he explains how to switch Maschine to a standard MIDI controller within Ableton to program and perform new drum parts and synth lines, all without stopping the music in Ableton Live.

I recently got Native Instruments FM8 software synth and I've been getting some good sounds for Midi Guitar with it. Using Ableton Live 6 I am able to load (and arm for recording) six instances of FM8. That way I can play the synth in a natural guitar-like manner. What I mean is that I can bend one string, sending a pitchbend message for one string (one midi channel) without that message bending the pitch of what's happening on all the other strings. It seems to work rather well. I thought that it might be of interest to other midi guitarists.

www.pointblankonline.net In the next 3 episodes in our 'Making Music with Apps' series Danny J Lewis shows you how you can put together professional sounding tracks on the move. In this tutorial he starts off with the beatmaking using Native Instrument's iMaschine. This approach is all about making the most of the unique qualities of each app and recording the results into Ableton as audio clips. The advantage is that you are committing the sound that you have made to audio so there is no temptation to endlessly fiddle with the synth parameters or the intricacies of the midi patterns and you can get on with the task of arranging the parts to make that banging tune that your 8 bar loop had promised!

More info - bit.ly In the third and final installment of our video tutorial series on Moog's Animoog iPad app, Dubspot Instructor Matt Cellitti offers sound design and production tips and tricks and shows you how to use Animoog in a Digital Audio Workstation. The final installment of the Animoog tutorials will hopefully give you a few more tricks on how to create some really cool sounds in this great app. Once you have created an interesting sound with a unique path, I will show you how to "stretch" the orbit across your path to create thick sounds, triggering multiple timbres at once for radically transforming sounds. Moving the path around the X/Y axis will allow you to essentially create several different presets inside of one saved sound. I might start with a slow pad if I begin in the top left corner, yet morph to a sharp lead sound by pulling the path down to the bottom of the Y axis. Lastly, it is important to realize that the signal coming out of the iPad/iPhone headphone jack comes in at a lower volume level than we would like. Simply use some effects inside of a DAW or other host program to boost the signal and create more interesting effect chains for Animoog. Set up an effect chain just once and save it for instant recall when you need it again. Works great in both Live and Maschine. - Matt Cellitti

More info: bit.ly In this video tutorial Detroit's Mike Huckaby illustrates how to automate patch changes using Native Instruments' plug-ins within Ableton Live, creating some exciting and dynamic effects using just one MIDI channel and some automation. Mike Huckaby is a very well-known and respected Detroit-based DJ, remixer, producer, and Ableton Live instructor who recently stopped by our Dubspot NYC studios to host a workshop on music production using Ableton Live and Native Instruments' Maschine. Following his recent Maschine tutorial on using scenes to create rhythm variations, our talented guest instructor here turns his attention to Ableton Live (part of what he calls the holy trinity of Maschine, Ableton Live and Reaktor) for some creative automation techniques. In this video Mike shows how to use program changes within Ableton Live to change patches in instrument plug-ins. By assigning this value to a MIDI control knob or automating the parameter in your clips, you can quickly change patches and make one instrument jump between multiple preset sounds. Rapid patch changes like this have become a common feature in contemporary dance music. Mike Huckaby is a living legend and has long been an influential player in Detroit's techno and house scenes. Over two decades of recordings have established his reputation as a creator, remixer and DJ, and he's become one of the most sought-after producers in the world. His recent remix work for Juan Atkins, Vladislav Delay ...
Read full article here: bit.ly As a Traktor specialist, one of the most popular questions I've been getting lately is "How can I beatgrid tracks that are recorded with a live drummer?" and "How can I beatgrid my classic disco records or vinyl rips in Traktor?" Unfortunately the answer is as of now, it's very difficult and almost impossible to beatgrid these tracks only using Traktor. However, while doing a Traktor training with David Morales, I found a way to get these tracks perfectly quantized to a click track using Ableton Live 8's warping engine, so you can bring the tracks back into Traktor and beatgrid them perfectly. Here is a step by step method on how to do it.
