Live set with Tempest

Live set with Tempest
« on: November 27, 2016, 12:53:20 PM »
I'll make my first live set in a couple of weeks and i was thinkinbg about playing for more than 2 hours.
What i'll bring is the tempest, a vermona Mono lancet and an Mpc 1000 (with pad samples and stuff).

Anyone has any tips on how to manage the 16 beats slots and the 6 voices outputs? I'll use one for the kick and probably another one for the clap.

(I make house/techno)

I like to put mine in order of main beats 1-8 and fill/breaks 9-16. As for voice allocation, I enjoy using just the stereo outs. When you use alternate outs, you lose the ability to use the main out volume and distortion on that part. Using multiple outs is totally ftw in the studio and for some things, but the simplicity of stereo out kinda wins for me usually. Im fairly new at mine, but i always make sure i have a beat saved that is blank. The tempest when slaved, follows start messages w/o fail and sometimes i dont want it to. My solution is to let it play, but a blank beat. One could always mute all the parts too, i guess.

crap, just noticed you said a couple weeks, a MONTH ago... So how'd it go? Im thinking of dropping the laptop and creating a Tempest backed set myself.

Thanks man, it went pretty good. I decided to opt for individual outs because i needed to distribute send and returns as i wanted, though next time i'll make a sound check i'll try the main stereo out to see how the distortion effect sounds on a good soundsystem (kick always on a  single out). Preparing a new one at the moment...
