The concept of live tracks is simple. Running background music that allows the band to accomplish something that they otherwise couldn't. It takes a simple Google search to discover that Ableton is the software of choice to accomplish that task.
However Ableton can be a double edged sword - it is EXTREMELY flexible and can accomplish almost anything... which often means that there are a myriad of ways to approach a problem - too many options.
And it's all too easy to end up creating more problems than we are solving - problems that feel impossible to address. Maxing out CPU/RAM, glitches during the live performance, and a stiff/inflexible performance are all too common amongst Ableton users.
The thing is, most of these issues show up over time, as we continually tinker with our live set, which adds again to the difficulty of troubleshooting and finding solutions to these problems.
However, it is entirely possible to prepare our sets in a manner that prevents these.
The method I use in Ableton is highly CPU/RAM efficient, allows for infinite arrangement changes on the fly live, and is very stable - very few glitches! Most of the differences in my set are very simple and easy to implement... you just need to get it right from the start.
And now, I want to share that method with you...
