Free Ableton Live workshop at Beta Friday
The fine folks at Basslab are offering a free workshop on the popular DJ/production/performance software suite Ableton Live at 6:30 p.m. Friday, August 14 in the Beta VIP lounge. Three twenty-minute sessions dedicated to using Live for the specific tasks of DJing, producing tracks and mixing down will be followed by an open, one-hour Q&A and hands-on help session. You'll want to bring "your manners, headphones, headphone splitters (male 1/8 inch to two female 1/8th inch), your computer loaded with Ableton, computer power supply," according to organizers. But fear not -- even if you haven't laid down the cash for Ableton yet, you're welcome to attend to learn some basics and get a feel for what the software can do. Space is limited and attendees need to RSVP as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org.
