The Reason of Ableton
A piece of software has revolutionized the face of all genres of electronic music called Ableton Live. It allows the user to manipulate sound files such as drum loops, field recordings, samples, etc. LIVE in realtime.

Our vision is to have a moderate PA with at least 16 stereo pair (32 1/4) inputs and a master midi clock to drive the performance. Users with laptops and Ableton live or Reason could then patch in via a personal midi interface and their audio outputs (1/8 to * adaptors) to the 1/4 inputs on the PA. This could easily be done in multi-channel surround and incorporate MIDI synced visuals.

The master midi clock is analogous to the peak of a giant MIDI pyramid, or the base of a giant MIDI-tree, branching off into a synchronous LIVE performance of numerous individuals able to drop-in and drop-out of the session as they'd like and contribute their personal sound files/loops/samples/etc. through a collaborative groove into the unknown...

We LIVE in a revolutionary time my brothers and sisters...
