The Drum Machine gets a mention live on Radio 6 in an interview from Lauren Laverne at Glastonbury 2010.
Here’s a clipping from a South West publication called Venue Magazine. One of many happy punters from Glastonbury festival!
Big thanks to Ableton for sharing our promo video with their extensive Facebook fanbase. We’ve had a huge response and hundreds of people sharing the film across the world!
Also have a read on the Ableton blog where they’ve featured an extensive write up on how we implemented Max For Live into The Drum Machine.
Also why not get involved in Bristol’s very own Ableton User Group. Loads of info and interactive sessions for you to learn more about Ableton with friends and mentors.
This was one of our tech guy Steve’s first interactive projects using Ableton as the sequencing package to his own hand made bespoke midi interface. Check this film to see it in action and find out more about The Abletonator.

“It’s big. It’s beautiful. It’s … not at all practical as a mobile controller. It’s the Abletonator: Ableton Live on a PC with custom controller and casing, transformed into an arcade game cabinet form-factor. Why? Because. So, if you liked the Ambassador Live controller with arcade buttons, but wanted a full cabinet so it’s impossible to lift, you’ll love this.
The creator is Jr Savage, who evidently created this in 2006. Install MAME on this, and you’ve got an all-Live, all-vintage-gaming dream machine. Specs:
- Custom-built plywood cabinet
- PC running Windows XP, Ableton Live 6 (hmmm… may want to upgrade the cabinet), with a 8×8 audio card
- 19″ LCD monitor
- Custom control surface: 8 channels, joystick navigation (of course!), touchpad and mouse
- 2-octave keyboard
“Coin-op electro shock.” I love it.”
