Bio Teaser : If Alicia Keys and Nelly Furtado collided with Daft Punk and Esthero in the vast circuitry of an Akai APC 40, you’d probably end up with an experience as rich and soulful as Erin Barra. Joining the likes of MNDR and Tokimonsta, Erin is part of a brave new digital audio live performance armada of female artists riding a tech savvy wave of musical and electronic innovation.
Don't forget that her new album "Illusions" is available NOW!
Erin will be giving away download discounts for any Ableton products, lots of free Swag (shirts/bags/mouse pads+) - so those of you looking to complete your fashion statement by safety pinning an Ableton mouse pad to the back of your acid washed jean jacket are in luck!!
### The other stuff:
I (Marc) am on a RAMPAGE training and sharing my APC40 template. This is a free template for live performance of cell based Ableton Sets (also compatible with DJ styles). Don't hesitate to bring your laptop to the meet up!!!
Download the current version of the template here:
PASSWORD : "microwave" - quick intro manual included with download (1.5 mb DLoad, 1.49 mb for the PDF document)
The template is built in part form the patches we're collecting on our repository located here : https://github.com/datamafia/ableton-colorado-user-data > click the "Downloads" link for a *.zip or tarball.
This is a great opportunity to skip the 200 hours required to build a solid template and get out performing!
Also on the evening is networking and some sharing of skills (I have a few fun tricks I learned recently for effects processing!).
If anyone has something to share, questions to ask, or live advice - Please bring it!
