U-HE ACE TIP: How to Modulate The Filter with an Envelope
How to Configure Ableton Live to Work with Novation UltraNova (Update: How to Record & Transmit Automation)

Colorado Ableton User Group May 2011 Meet-Up


Update: See notes and photos from this event on my artist site.

I’ll be presenting at the upcoming Ableton Colorado User Group. Here are the details from the Meetup Page.

Our night is generally divided up into 3 segments. Beginner, Advanced, and End-Game. Each has a focus on Ableton and methods of the programming. At the same time there is much to take away if you are not a die-hard Ableton user or practitioner of another electronic music platform.
BEGINNER : How to defy death using Session and Arrangement View
Alternate Title : Lessons learned in Session and Arrangement View
Marc (DJNSM) will lead the discussion on these 2 views. Experts and beginners are very welcome to contribute in asking and answering questions!

  • Basics of the 2 views
  • Similarities and differences
  • Advantages in the studio and performing
  • A method to production for studio to stage and back again

ADVANCED : Making your VSTs environmentally friendly in Ableton
Alternate Title :Taming and Controlling VST with Ableton to extend your sound palette and make these settings manageable and increase patch recycling
Mark Mosher (
ModulateThis.com) shows how to painlessly extend Live’s range and palette with third party instruments.

  • Step-by-step methods for wrapping instruments
  • Performance and deconstruction of a song using instruments to illustrate quick, unique, and creative results
  • Coordination of these elements with Live’s standard modulation, automation, and re-sampling features.

END-GAME : Large scale deployment and integration of mind control devices
Alternate Title : Did I say ‘Mind control device’? I meant Ableton and fail safe control. Original presenter Chase Dobson will be out of town as his back-line Ableton work on Mike Posner’s tour got extended to Europe and Asia (how cool is that?).

So we have David Henderson stepping in on Monome+Live+Launchpad. With Mike S. returning from the Gridfest there is a lot of noise about the Monome type applications and David is going to help ct through all the nonsense and get people dialed in on the Monome experience.

We will have Chase sharing his leanings, but not until he is in Colorado for break.
