In this video tutorial, Dubspot Instructor DJ Kiva explores the creative possibilities of midi sync and audio routing between Dave Smith Instruments’ Tempest drum instrument and Ableton Live.
The Dave Smith Instruments Tempest is an analog drum machine that was created by two of the top minds in the industry: Dave Smith and Roger Linn. Together they have developed an instrument that takes the traditional drum machine into new realms of sound and control. While exploring the instrument in our studios, Dubspot Ableton instructor DJ Kiva recorded this tutorial in which he syncs the Tempest with Ableton Live and records the Tempest’s multiple outputs as individual audio tracks in Ableton. To finish off the session Kiva plays back the recorded parts and adds his own custom delays through send channels in Ableton Live.
