Thavius Beck, Live 8, and the Akai APC40 at West L.A. Music

Ableton clinician, producer and electronic musician Thavius Beck will present the powerful combination of Live 8 and the Akai APC40 (Ableton Performance Controller) at a special event on September 10, at West L.A. Music. Thavius will be joined by Thayod Ausar and members of the Gold Chain Military (Planet Asia, Trisate, Montage One and Turbin). The focus will be on integrating the APC40 with Live 8, and attendees will learn:

  • How to navigate Live's Session View using only the APC, which functions as a hands-on representation of the Session view
  • How effects parameters are automatically mapped to the APC's knobs, and how to switch through various effects on the fly
  • How to create beats with the APC
  • How to use the APC as a live performance tool

Come on out to West L.A. and learn more about this popular live performing and recording combo: Live 8 and the Akai APC40, the easiest solution for beat production, editing and recording.
