Whether you’re adding instruments to a DJ set or performing to backing tracks, there are always challenges in combining live performance with sequencers and pre-recorded material.

You’ll hear the band perform and then get an up-close look at how the show is run from an MIDI-enabled pedalboard, an iPad remote control, a digital mixer, and a computer running Ableton Live.

About Jon Margulies
Producer Jon Margulies is the man behind Hobotech, songwriter/instigator of @tinymachines, and is one of the world’s best known Ableton Live experts. Since it’s fireside conception in 2007, Hobotech has steadily grown in popularity. Jon’s recent schedule has made an appearance at Coachella, an opening set for Bassnectar with collaborator Haj (Sub Swara), and shows which have found him sharing the stage with luminaries of bass music including ill.Gates, David Starfire, and AN-TEN-NAE.
The EP “This Is The Place” was described as “like George Clinton meets Datsik” on BassGeneration.com: BassGeneration.com, and was included as a featured download in the 2010 wrapup newsletter from TheUntz.com.
Hobotech is the sound of ozark mountain future funk, dirty electro-gospel, and glitched out whomp crashing into delta blues. Hobotech is a place where Tom Waits wreck subwoofers and Ralph Stanley gets his crunk on. It’s contemporary music that nods to a forgotten America, celebrating half-smoked cigars and railside cauldrons of stew.
Jon is the author of “Ableton Live Power!”, co-author of “Your Ableton Live Studio with Chris Buono,” and has written numerous articles for Music Tech magazine. He presents classes and workshops around the country, teaches for cutting-edge music school Dubspot, and is an Adjunct Instructor at New York University. In 2010, he created the ambitious project “365 Live Tips” in which he published one Live tip for each day of the year on his website, jonmargulies.com.
