This weekend was all over the place, hurriedly got ready for my show saturday night. One important thing to remember when making a live set for a show, try to avoid changing it alot at the very last minute.

None of the set was pre-sequenced, it was designed to live loop, however there was a hole in a last minute decision regarding percussion looping that really broke the whole set up.
Taking advice from a good friend, I’m going to make a ‘fun’ set I’m thinking something I can pull 2+ hours of techno from and linking it up with VVVV.

I settled on a Logitech MX Revolution which I do enjoy quite a bit, except there’s no middle mouse button. The clicking is so precise though that it’s pretty easy to click both left/right buttons at once to trigger a middle click. Works fine that way in Blender and Firefox. Reassigning mouse buttons in Ubuntu is not very elegant.Read More
