Dubspot instructor, Ableton Certified Trainer, and electronic musician Thavius Beck returns with a brand-new season of Did You Know? We launched the series back in January, and for eight consecutive Mondays, Thavius shared invaluable production advice, tips, tricks, and techniques and examined some of the less explored and slightly hidden features in Ableton Live. In the latest installment of the series, Thavius shares an extremely helpful tip for performing or DJing with Live; he explains how to create essential key or MIDI mappings in Live.

In addition to his work with Dubspot, Thavius Beck is a prolific producer and remixer, and his latest album The Most Beautiful Ugly will be released September 11th by pioneering Los Angeles label Plug Research. He has also released music on labels such as Mush and Big Dada and collaborated with the likes of Saul Williams, Nine Inch Nails, Nas, and Busdriver. The Most Beautiful Ugly is Thavius’ first album in three years. You can pre-order the album here; it will be available in a limited colored vinyl edition as well as CD and digital .
