Product Overview

Today's creative DJ does so much more than just spin tracks. Alex Solano shows you how you can use Ableton Live, a AKAI Pro Rhythm Wolf, and a AKAI APCmkII to keep your beats live and your set exciting!

Alex begins by showing you the capabilities of the hardware and software used, and what they offer to the DJ. He then shows you how to optimally configure Ableton Live for a DJ set.

Next, Alex reveals how to set up an Analog Beat Box / Synthesizer like the AKAI Rhythm Wolf to add a sense of live excitement to your DJ set and avoid problems like tempo drift. He then follows up with a video on how the APCmkII makes an ideal DJ controller.

The last three videos are all about performance. Alex shows you how to use Ableton's Session View to drag in Clips and Loops and trigger them during your set. Following that, Alex explores the Effects Racks in Live and how to use them in your set. And finally, he walks you through the full workflow of performing the entire set.
