Finally Feel In Control Of Your Live Rig

An exclusive video workshop for anyone who performs on a stage with a computer.  You'll discover the BEST method that will also unlock complete control in your setup.  A true "Dream" scenario for computer-based keys platers.



Never feel like you're trapped or limited or "stuck" with your software setup again...

I've been hearing very similar things from many people:

"I've spent all this time and money buying and learning this software, and now it feels like there's less flexibility and more things to go wrong."

Which is sad, as software should exist to make us MORE flexible, and open up an infinite realm of possibility. And it can. It's simple actually.

As a matter of fact, there are a few key things I've done to set my rig up that give me the ability to DRAMATICALLY change my sound, while being in complete control. and most of all... FUN.
Believe it or not, it's actually enabled me to use just a couple of patches - about 10-12 total... and be able to use them to accomplish nearly ANYTHING I want to.

And now, I want to show you how too.



How to design the perfect live rig for complete control in Ableton, Main Stage, and Reason. - without the guesswork, glitches, and restrictive limitations


Complete Control

Discover the exact routing, bussing, and effects setup you can use to take back control of your Ableton, Mainstage, or Reason setup. Learn how to morph sounds on the fly, stay in control of the flow/set, and have the cool confidence that comes from knowing you'll never be caught off guard again.

Maximum Flexibility

Imagine being able to control the sound of any patch you use and be able to dramatically shape and mold it... at your whim. What if you could quickly turn a piano into a vibrant angelic pad, a synth into a mellow pad, or a mono signal into a wide expansive roar... all at the turn of a simple knob or two.

What Specific Effects You Should Use

You'll learn exactly what effects matter and what ones don't. There are a few core effects that work BEAUTIFULLY on just about any sound. By adding these 3-4 to your setup, you'll unlock near infinite possibilities... live.

Examples In The Software You Use
I give you the exact templates and the exact settings I use in Ableton. I then take those settings and move them into MainStage and Reason. You'll be able to simply "copy/paste" my settings into your software. These are the exact same settings I use live with Jesus Culture, at Bethel, and on recordings every day.





In this video workshop, you'll learn how to approach your rig from the perspective of control and flexibility.  I'll show you how to take the concepts in the ANALOG world - with all the knobs, faders, control (and FUN), and apply them to the DIGITAL world - with patches, presets, effects, etc.  The result is a live rig capable of ANYTHING.




You'll watch as I open sessions and build the system from scratch in the software you're already using - Mainstage, Reason, and Ableton.  So you can rest assured you'll get what you need to fully take advantage of the methods shown in these videos.




Everything you see in the workshop is saved and attached to the lesson.  So you can actually download and play with the sessions yourself to see how it all works - before you chart your own course and sculpt your own rig.

  • I don't just teach this stuff, I actually use it: This is the EXACT setup I have used on stadium tours, video shoots, live recordings for Grammy nominated artists, and more.  I'm not just repeating what some other person is teaching others - I literally figured this out via trial and error from countless hours on stage.  When you hear different sounds, morphing textures and effects, or wild layers - THIS setup was responsible.
  • I'm not JUST an instructor: but I am also a musician who plays at churches, live recordings, works in the studio, producers, writes, and everything else we do as musicians.  I've been working with Ableton since Version 1.5 (that's 2002 if you're curious) and have been a professional musician for 2/3 of my life.  So you can believe me that when I tell you that, when it comes to live patches rigs in Ableotn, I GET IT!  ;)
  • I've helped A LOT of musicians with their Live Patches Rigs: At the time of writing, over 2300 people have gone through Transform Your Live Rig.   I've helped people who use Mainstage, Ableton, Reason, or even hardware keyboards. Chances are that, if you're using it, I've heard about it and already helped someone with it.

Without it, you waste your time troubleshooting, trialing complex solutions, and just "hoping" your setup works as well as you'd like.

With it, you unlock the path to effortless control, cool confidence, and infinite sound morphing possibilities - LIVE, on the fly.

Now, go forth and start creating!
