At our INPUT: A Music Producer’s Conference in way back May 2013, Seekae’s Alex Cameron and George Nicholas gave the audience a rare look under the hood of of their Ableton Live performance setup.
On this blog we’ve looked into using Ableton Live on-stage with Tim Shiel (Gotye) Mitzi (Future Classic), Rüfüs and Panama (in three parts: one, two, three) and it’s clear that there’s a no definitive way that people use Ableton Live for live performance. Seekae’s Ableton Live performance setup is no exception.
Seekae have honed their on-stage Ableton Live set across numerous globe-trotting tours in the past several years, with the result being one of the most complex, powerful and yet elegantly simple to operate Ableton Live performance setups that we’ve seen.
In this short video excerpt from their talk, Seekae share some of the techniques behind their on-stage Ableton Live set, and show the audience exactly how they manage changing instruments and effects during their live performance using dummy clips and the chain selector.
