So I’ve a new video up. I’ve been rehearsing the set in it for a week, so I have no words for how relieved I feel seeing that it turned out ok.
I made it using 4 virtual instruments in Ableton Live, each assigned to limited portion of the Launchpad, with the top right quarter of the button grid assigned to midi clip spots and effects, and some of the round buttons assigned to audio clips (the Joker quotes). This meant I could record each of them both simultaneously and individually, while being able to switch between multiple combinations of clips and effects much faster than I would if I’d assigned any instrument to the whole button grid of the Launchpad. Overall, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
I filmed this in the Cismigiu Gardens in Bucharest. The thing was filmed by ADNgraphic and supervised by a drummer friend of mine. I love having security ‘on set’.
If I get enough feedback on this, I’ll post a full explanation on how I created this set, along with the samples I used.
You can also check out some more videos of mine here.
*EDIT* I’ve entered the video in the Novation Video Showdown Competition and won 2nd place. I’ll be receiving my prize Special Edition Launchpad shortly. Thanks to all who voted for me.
