London ableton link jam this Thursday

North London folks. I have nothing to do with this, found it on Facebook. Seems like you just rock up with your link enabled app and jam.

  • I have never been to one of these types of meetups. What do people do for amplification? Just use device built-in speakers? Everybody brings along their own personal sound reinforcement? Maybe the organizer figures it out and brings some sort of mixer and P.A. system for everyone to use?

    Looks like they ask people to bring 1/4" or RCA cables to plug into their mixer.

    Sounds like a really fun event! Wish I could go.

    Yeah, as it says in the description, you bring your own cables and plug into their mixer.

  • Sounds so cool. I’d love to do this here in Austin TX

  • @Ribbon @ph8aerror Thanks. I didn't look at the FB page for this one, but was wondering if there is some standards in place as far as how these meet-ups go in general. I wasn't sure if you needed a portable amp or powered speakers to participate effectively, but a house P.A. would be the best I think. Sounds really fun. :)

  • It is a studio so I'm pretty sure they'll have a few pa's. There's talk of small groups and 30mins rotation.

    I'd probably go but too short notice and no place to stay.

    I ran an Ableton-Link Jam in my home town in High Wycombe Bucks UK this year. I bring my PA - a 4 stereo-input mixer and a wi-fi router. And my own gear. Most iPad related.

    Everyone plugs into this. I renamed the group to Electronic Music Jam as some wanted it to be more inclusive of hardware synths and gear. As long as everything can sync to A.L.

    That’s more like it. I’m in Oxford mate! Would be good to hear some samples from your last one.

    Ah, it seems like this isn’t happening anymore.

    I’m up for something like this, wonder if Ableton or someone else would sponsor? I have one iOS Interface but no mixer.

    Art Audio make an ideal cheap passive 4-stereo input mixer for such jams, that I used. No need for an interface

    Cool! Thanks for the tip. i will look it up. :)

  • I run a weekly lunchtime jam at my office in Reading, UK. It’s a mixture of iPads and Volcas and occasionally a guitar and lots of effects. Really good fun. We use a single mixing desk with headphones in a splitter. Today I got everyone routing via my iPad so I could sidechain against my kick (BM3). @nonchai - I keep meaning to come along to the Wycombe jam (I live very nearby), but Mondays is a bit tricky :/

    So cool B)
    Do you record/film/ upload these sessions ?

  • Yeah we've all been busting our soundcloud limits, so they are scattered about.....

    Please bear in mind these are all improvisational - there are moments where 'it works' and others where 'it doesn't' ! Sometimes there's moments where nothing seems to be happening because we're trying to fix something in the setup. Hard limit of an hour because we need to pack up and get on with our day jobs :smile:

    Last Friday's (this one I mainly did the beats and used AUM / Rozeta exclusively, my colleagues are using Groovebox and there's a Korg Microkorg with tons of effects pedals too).

    From earlier in the year (ambient-er)

  • hope i can join there.
