Ableton Live Looping with Roland Fantom-06 - No Halo
hey everybody rachel k carlia here hope you're all having an awesome summer so far the last couple of weeks i've been getting really stuck into this phantom zero six from
rolandand this is from the new series of phantoms a little bit more slimline and portable i'm loving this thing not only is it a standalone synth a sequencer a sampler a very good midi controller it also has wait for it daw integration so in today's video i'm gonna be hooking this up to
livedoing a little performance with just the phantom zero six and then i'm gonna break it down for you let's get into it foreign us through a lens is leaving shadows and sunlight perceptions not airtight so you should know i can't do everything i make you hurt shadows and sunlight perceptions know so shadows and sunlight perceptions not a tight so you should know thank you very much so i hope you enjoyed my little performance of no
halolet me know in the comments below if you think i should release that track but right now i've dimmed the lights i've added some more gadgets let me break it down and explain to you how that all worked so first things first before i dive into the specifics of the track with the phantom i've just hooked it up via usb into my computer and by pressing this little button here door control on my phantom
livewill magically appear when you've installed the driver so definitely do that and then
livelooks pretty much...
exactly the same as it looks over on the computer obviously it's a little bit more compact and you can jump between the mixer window and then the clips window with these buttons here you can navigate around the project using these little arrows to go down and change it to go across which is cool and then it's a touch screen so everything else you press it's just gonna work just like it does in session view for my little performance i have set up what you call on the phantom a scene and it's called rkc's picks and it's all the sounds that you heard in that track there's a mixture of midi midi stuff and audio stuff like those nice chords so just to clarify a scene on the phantom is split up into 16 different zones these zones can be audio channels midi channels or a mixture of both i actually used eight zones in this performance and i flick between my audio channels and my midi channels then you can hook up your channels ready to do your
loopingand then in the performance what i was doing was switching between my zones and then doing my
abletonso let me demo this for you let me turn on my click track here and then what i did first of all was loop up the kick drum so here we go one two three four two three four and then i mapped up these pads with midi mapping to tap out of the loop and then here we go the next channel i've got is this very rkc sample so same thing i'll do the loop few one two three four and then i'm...
gonna switch zone now go to this this very cool sound my gopro is having a little dance and then i'm gonna loop up that channel of audio as well so one two three four and then sneakily press the stop button just in time for it to loop up and then i continue doing that added the drums as well which is another midi channel of a drum rack that i created of sounds that i liked another audio channel then which was my guitar which i felt quite brave playing today and then scrolling along i actually did some vocal loops and i did a sneaky little base loop and the way i did that performance was by
loopingup a series of clips and then arranging the stop buttons so that when i trigger for example the second scene certain clip stop and then i can loop up new clips and then bring new clips back in so just for example i got my three clips in there now i think we need one more so i'm going to trigger scene one i've also mapped this up to the pads here so let's loop up those drums one two three four and then i mapped up a big reverb swell filter press scene two and these clips will keep going because i've removed those stop buttons and then i can gradually bring things back in so of course with any
liveperformance and a controller it's essential that we can do some midi mapping and this phantom you can map up all of these knobs and all of these sliders so in the performance you probably heard me going to the higher octave so i've just assigned the...
on and off button there for an octave higher i also assigned cc31 to a lovely little delay and cc33 whoa that one's pretty intense and then this little slider here i mapped up to my synology effect and then i also had like the overdrive mapped to the first sound so i map that up in
abletonwith some reverb which is pretty fun and you can tell all these knobs and sliders exactly what cc note you want it to be and you do that quite simply by jumping into your menu go into your scene edit and then you can scroll down here and this is where you can choose your midi cc number and the range and then you can do exactly the same thing for the sliders as well so there we have it i really hope you enjoyed my little performance and breakdown with the phantom 06 this is an epic workstation i definitely recommend checking it out i'm going to be taking this out with me
liveon stage as well combining it with all my other gear i'm really excited for that if you want to learn how to perform in more depth with
livethen i've made a whole course that goes through all my tips and tricks in extreme detail there's a link in my description there if you do want to check out that otherwise don't forget i've got my patreon community we're over in discord we've got monthly music making challenges i give away all the stems sample packs there's just loads of stuff happening there and it's always good to see new faces so come and join us over in the...
patreon otherwise i'll see you next time you
