I recently found Live Control which is an open source template for TouchOSC that incorporates user midi remote scripts just like the APC40. It's a really phenomenal tool, because it basically allows you to turn your iPad into an APC40. At least the python script was written to interact with Ableton Live in much the same way giving an insane amount of control with minimal effort. In fact, it communicates both ways ...
I've spent many hours discovering how to instant map my Korg microKONTROL to Ableton Live using the UserConfiguration.txt file, MidiPipe(optional), and the Librarian software that comes with the microKONTROL. I have successfully mapped the first 3 scenes of my microKONTROL to control various parameters in Live without having to Map them manually in midi map mode. The reason I made this tutorial is because I wish I could have had access ...
Gate Effect with Sidechaining
Using the gate effect in Ableton Live, you can create interesting gated patterns to the beat by turning on sidechain, and selecting a rhythmic pattern to receive audio signal from. (note: If you select a midi drum rack, you can also select any one of the drums individually) Then all you have to do is play with the threshold, attack, decay and release to get the sound just right.
DJ Story: Great Music! Are you using Ableton?
Mirror Me (Zenon Rec.): Yep. All Ableton. Synthesizing, sampling and resampling. A minimalist approach.
DJ Story: Any plugins?
Mirror Me (Zenon Rec.): Oh yah. FM8, Sylenth, Massive, and many more.

DJ Story: What about that ...
There's a really easy new way to sell music that integrates with Soundcloud. It's called Soundrain, and it uses a technology called Minno to sell the music right out of your Soundcloud account. It connects with your soundcloud account and allows you to enable or disable track sales for each song already uploaded to soundcloud. It's the quickest and easiest way I've ever seen to start selling music. When someone clicks the ...
DJ Story here. Check out this remix I worked on with Paul Gotel for the band D:ream. It made it into itunes store. You can only hear about 30 seconds though without paying. It’s for their single titled “All Things to All Men.” I like the song a lot.

by DJ Story Resampling opens up a lot of creative potential when producing music in Ableton. I find it especially handy when I want to add a bit of randomness to a composition, because you can record the random variations in and edit them down into what actually sounds good to your ear. Let’s say […]
When I first got my APC40, I was amazed by the out of the box functionality. I had done my research, and knew that it was what I wanted. It offers a lot of flexibility in the studio and for live performance. I still had this feeling like there must be more though. I started […]
