Just threw up a new F.B. group called Musicians and Machines. It’s aimed at exploring techniques to integrate laptops and acoustic instruments for live performance. Check it here. Over the next month I’ll be experimenting and working with a new plug-in called B-Keeper which allows a drummer to control Ableton Live’s global tempo. This has some incredible possibilities for integrating laptops and live instruments. Instead of the drummer being the slave to the click, the laptop will flow with the human feel of the drummer. I have a free download available on the FB page here.
