Ableton Master Sessions I & II
Saturday 06.28 - 7-9pm @ DubSpot

[7:15pm] Live's Drum Rack is the ultimate tool for unique beat-production & fresh sound design for drums.
Drum Racks are not a virtual instrument in the traditional sense, but are a powerful framework for building customized drum banks. For new users, they are the ultimate in simplicity as sample kits can be built quickly using drag and drop. Drum Racks subtle strength lies in the fact that they can be as simple or as complex as you want them to be. Loop junkies will love the new beat slicing facilities, and MPC freaks will enjoy the ease with which pad controllers can be used to control even the largest drum banks.

In this class, DubSpot's newest instructor Jon Margulies author of "Ableton Live 7 Power!" will teach how to use Ableton Live as the ultimate drum machine. Learn how Live provides a simple, streamlined environment that allows you to seamlessly combine sampling, synthesis and loop slicing in just about any way you can dream up.

[8:15pm] From Producer to DJ - In this session, Jon will discuss the evolution of his live set from Live PA to a hybrid DJ set that he's mostly given up trying to explain to people. As more DJs become producers, and producers gig out with their computers, the lines differentiating the different types of electronic music performers is becoming ever more blurred. Jon will demonstrate how incorporating original elements can make a DJ set more flexible and improvisational, and why producers might want to consider incorporating other people's music into their live sets.

Whether you're an experienced producer or brand new to the game, Ableton Live 7 has powerful new features that you need to come experience for yourself. More on Jon here (
