Joe Clegg

Ableton Live for Drummers

An introduction to using Ableton Live with electronic drums for live music performance.


 

“I personally think that there is beauty in the detail, that recreating a programmed drum part with accuracy is an art form in itself. I might be the only person that gets excited at the thought of pop shows being played fully live, by musicians using technology as an instrument, without conventional backing tracks, but it’s more attainable than ever.”


In this video series you will learn how to translate studio recordings into the live arena in a human and musical way.


Joe demonstrates the techniques he uses when approaching electronic drums on a live show. From selecting sounds, programming, automation, and practically how that works on stage.


Within a musical context, Joe breaks down a track from the final mix to stems and back to the multi-tracks—rebuilding it piece by piece into a playable version, ready for stage.


If you’re a drummer but totally new to MIDI, triggers, automation, and sample baseddrums from a DAW, you will discover a whole new world of possibilities.


“I use Ableton Live on almost every show I work on. It isn’t the only DAW used in the world of live music, but it is creative, versatile, and reliable. Ableton handles MIDI, samples, and software instruments in a unique way, designed with performance in mind.”


Recorded at Snap Studios in London, ‘Ableton Live for Drummers’ also includes two sample packs and three exclusive video performances of Joe’s original material, demonstrating how to incorporate electronic and acoustic drums, as well as outboard equipment, in three different set-ups.
