Ableton Live is a loop-based software music sequencer and digital audio workstation for OS X and Windows. The latest major release of Live, Version 9, was released in March 2013. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging, mixing and mastering. It is also used for beatmixing of tracks by DJs, as it offers a suite of controls for beatmatching, crossfading, and other effects used by turntablists, and was one of the first music applications to automatically beat match songs.

nanoKey Experiments [Processing, Sound]

Created by Amnon Owed,  this is an experiment using KORG nanoKEY and Processing to create visual interpretation of sound into objects. While a tone is played, all objects originating from that tone grow in size. The strength that is used to tap the keys (velocity) affects the object’s initial location on the screen. So depending on how the […]
