Ableton Live, Beyond Music Production: Part 3: Lighting
This class is for anyone who:
- Makes or performs music
- Works in the field of audio engineering, lighting or projection
And who wants to learn:
- How to network a variety of applications to produce synchronised outcomes in lighting
- How to network across multiple machines to synchronise those apps
- How to create your own templates in TouchOSC to control said applications wired or wirelessly
- How lighting can be automated in Ableton Live
- What lighting protocols are and how they operate
- MIDI and MIDI Mapping
- How each application is interconnected
In this class we start with the very basics of Ableton and applications like RemixVideo and DMxis work all the way up to producing synchronised lighting shows and effects. I walk you through every step of the process, and explain my logic behind every decision I make. I'll even walk you through a complete demonstration from beginning to end.
The goal of this class is for you to learn how to create stunning lighting effects for use in the home, venue, club or stage.
In this class I'll be using Ableton Live and I've gone to great lengths to make sure this class is useful to everyone, no matter what your experience.
I'm best known for working with electronic music and corporate audio visual events, but I've designed this course to be useful to anyone who has interest in the topics discussed.
