Using the Akai MPK Mini MKII for live performance in Ableton Live

YouTuber/Musician, Teatro, put together this awesome tutorial on how he uses his MPK Mini II in Ableton Live. I have one of these myself and really found his videos inspiring and helpful. The MPK Mini MkII is a really nice little controller that is very affordable, and if you map controls intelligently, it’s quite capable for live performance.

Above is the tutorial, then below is the actual performance of he’s talking about in the tutorial. Great stuff!

If you want to pick up an MPK Mini Mkii for yourself you can get one with the link below from Amazon.

Painstaking recreation of Prodigy’s Voodoo People in Ableton Live

A Facebook friend of mine shared this video by jimpavloff¬†who painstakingly recreated Prodigy’s Voodoo People in Ableton Live and went so far as to even track down all of the original sample sources.

It’s pretty cool to see somebody dissect a song like this and also pretty informative as to ways you can use and manipulate samples. Definitely a cool vid and worth watching the whole thing. Here’s the original as well to compare.
