Live side-chain and time coding.
Red Bull Studios ‘Master Class’ is back for its third installment, this round featuring Jimmy Mac with a series focused on taking Ableton Live to the stage.
Jimmy Mac, otherwise known as ‘Scuba Diva’, has toured the world as Lorde’s keyboard player, filled the subs of The Grammy’s, and played alongside Beach House and Flume at Laneways 2016.
In this episode, Jimmy takes a midi signal from an SPD and uses it to sidechain the synths he’s controlling in Ableton Live. Secondly, he illustrates how to send time-code from Live to trigger external lighting and video rigs.
