Blog reader Brad recently wrote in wondering if I knew of any good tutorials on DJing with Ableton Live. I haven’t worked with Live lately as a DJ tool, but I did point him towards some of the tutorials that have been featured on Beatmixed in the past.
As luck would have it, however, another blog reader (Thibaud) wrote in to share some amazing videos of mash-up artist Moldover giving a live how-to on using Ableton as a DJ tool. The demonstration really is amazing — for example, Moldover shares his own personal techniques such as how he assigns his channel faders and color coding clips according to their harmonic key. The video is quite impressive — Moldover really is pushing the boundaries of digital DJ technology. Definitely check it out.
