Useful ideas and things from Ableton

Just a quick post following an email I got today. Ableton have put up a very handy page with a bunch of useful things for Ableton users and also non users too. You can find the page here.

In particular you should check out the excellent book Making Music: 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers, which is available in multiple formats. I’ve read this more than once and it is very handy indeed.

I thought you should know.

Ableton, M4L and BEAP

I got very excited when I heard about BEAP.  A modular thing for Max 4 Live, which looked like just the right thing for me in terms of messing about with max a bit more.

So I’ve downloaded BEAP and started to install it, which isn’t as easy as any kind of normal installation, but it seems to be going in the right direction. Next I have to see if I can get it to do things I like, and when I do, I’ll post some results I expect.
