AfroDJMac Debuts Free Ableton Live Synth Workstation Rack
Ableton nutter AfroDJMac has debuted a Live Synth Workstation rack for free. The new rack is aimed specifically at live performance and based on his experience playing keyboards in a mate’s band.
I am always amazed at how many different ways people use Live, but I haven’t really seen too much information online about how to use Ableton simply as a synth workstation (trust me I looked!). So, I guess this one is most appropriately handled in a video walkthrough and your own experimentation. In the video I discuss routing inside Live, “Dummy” tracks, setting up midi controllers, building effect racks, sending multiple synths through the same effects, morphing synths, using external synths (my beloved Teenage Engineerings OP-1)… So, download the Live Set and use it to play live, load your own sounds, or the effects rack that is inside.
