Ableton Live User Group With Nick Feldman (28th April, 19:30 BST)
On 28th April at 19:30 BST we are hosting a special Ableton Live masterclass: Ableton Live User Group With Nick Feldman.
During this masterclass, Nick Feldman will explore the various ways that you can work with video within Ableton Live. This will involve understanding what can be done natively in Live’s arrangement view, where Max for Live can introduce semi-native video features to the DAW and where we would instead sequence and send MIDI/OSC control messages out to a secondary app (eg. Resolume Avenue).
You will not be expected to know much about this topic prior to the session as there will be topics of interest for anyone, from complete novices to seasoned video producers and VJs.
Running Aftermath Studios With Paul Montes (28th April 18:00 PDT)
Paul Montes is the Director of Studio Operations for Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, where he maintains all aspects of the recording studio facilities from top to bottom. Throughout his career, Paul has had the opportunity to work with the biggest names in modern hip hop including Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Anderson Paak, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and many, many more.
In this masterclass, Paul will go over everything that goes into running a major studio successfully and keeping the studio in optimum condition for any and all production, recording, and mixing studio sessions.
