    Default Ableton Live Techno Jam setup

    Hey everybody, I'd love to share with you my setup and get some feedback as well
    So after a lot of frustration trying to figure what the heck I want, realizations that I want is not what I need and what I need doesn't really suit me or I simply don't have enough cash, or brains to do what I have in mind. But lately I managed to come a bit closer to my vision, and further away from "just playing tracks in Traktor".



    Here's a quick jam in Ableton Live with two Digital Warriors, MF Twister, MI Shruthi and a Volca Beats. It started quite technoish and bleepy but ended up quite deep.
    I'm using the Twister as a Mixer controlling track volumes and sends; the two Warriors for launching clips and sequencing percussions and some filters; Korg Volca beats for additional layer of percussions and a Mutable Instruments Shruthi for some synth lines. Everything soaking wet in reverb and delays.

    So I would love to hear what you think, some suggestions and your own stories of frustration and success searching for that " perfect dream" setup.

    I skimmed through the session and there were a few cool sounds. I'll definitely give this (and your soundcloud stuff) a listen tomorrow.

    Have you tried clip launching with the Twister?

    Yes, but the encoder buttons are quite stiff, I prefer rubbery pads for this, they require less "effort". Plus I have the encoder buttons of the Twister set up to reset the encoders, to easily release FX buildups.
