Following on with our series of Livestream sessions, Point Blank tutor and international DJ Steve Travell aka Travski will be showcasing some of the newest Ableton DJ performance techniques using various midi controllers.

Using controllers including the Novation Launchpad, iPhone, and even a Wii controller Steve will demonstrate innovative ways in which these technologies are being used by laptop DJs to mash and mangle audio loops and samples into exciting live performances. The fact that affects can be routed however you like through these controllers and then everything can be manipulated on the fly means you are able to create intricate electronic soundscapes that will never sound the same twice. For those looking for something a bit extra than DJing on 2 decks and a mixer, this session will show you what can be achieved.
