Itinerary to follow


2:30 – Organizers and performers setup the backroom with the club’s sound engineer.



Check in and sign-up for “Show Your Project” and make sure to scoop a name tag. Before starting the demos, attendees will have a chance to introduce themselves, talk briefly about their musical background, and how long they’ve been using Live.


3:00 – 3:45 – “TBD”

demonstration by TBD

If this slot doesn’t get filled, we’ll figure something out.

[45 MINS]
demonstration by Aran Arms

Aran is has published 100+ instructional videos on Maschine/Ableton/S1 for Maschine Masters.com.

Aran will show us how he maps midi CCs to Hardware synths, then uses that mapping to automate a hardware synth



5:45 – 6:15 (time-permitting) – Show Your Project

Group members may present their Live projects and get feedback from the group. If there are a lot of presenters, we should keep these short. Make sure to sign-up when you get to the meet-up, and we will go in that order until we run out of names, or until the club kicks us out of the back room.


6:15 – ? – Drinks and socializing in the bar. Stick around for the live show. There will be an early show from 6-10 and a late show afterward. Busy day at the club.

If anyone needs to eat before or after the event, check out Palomino (next door). They can cater to meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike. A quick jaunt up the street will lead you to Vanguard, Honey Pie, and a few other Bay View restaurants.
