Most people are aware of my affinity for finger drumming and live performance, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that I want to preform live unsequenced finger drumming with my Modular system. However when I began setting up patches to do this sort of thing I ran into a problem. I wanted to use 1 module for both open and closed hi hats, while triggering this single module from 2 gate sources without running into the issue of the closed hi hat opening up the decay envelope. ENTER LOGIC. In order to complete such a task I need to separate the closed hi hat trigger from the open hi hat trigger (while there is only one trigger input on the module). To do this I use the Animodule XXX_or . This module allows me to send two separate triggers to the same destination and other destinations without the risk of back feeding and having the closed hi hat trigger the decay envelope. Normally this back feeding wouldn’t be an issue if I was simply using a sequencer, but in a live performance real it is important that the open hi hat pad and the closed hi hat pad both trigger the sound independently. Take a look at the video below to see how I did it.
Welcome the return of
The Producers Hangout show
This episode we invite Soundsandgear.com’s St. Joe who has a new site “Pushtutorials.com”
we discuss the recent Ableton live update as well as its new controller Push (2?). as well as the excellent new plugin from UVI “Falcon”, novations “circuit” and more. sit back and enjoy a nice chat about a whole lot of gear.
Push 2 has finally landed and it is a BEAST
Now with the large full color screen across the top, all new solid construction and slick knobs the user is treated to a amazingly well thought out and luxurious workspace. No longer are we going to stare at hollowed orange LEDs when trying to manipulate our sounds. The real change however is on the software side! Live 9.5 features a totally reworked sampling experience complete with chopping slicing capturing and mangling all done right from the controller.
Now you can easily zoom in and cut up sounds on the fly with the Push 2 controller. You also have access to a large host of new analog modeled filters.
Live 9.5 also features an enhanced browser allowing you to browse all of your plugins samples effects templates… everything right from the hardware!
More news to follow for now we are enjoying just getting to bash about on what looks to be the true next wave of beat making devices!
