Meet and hear performances by Sound Oracle and NC State student Kaanchee of Sand Pact as they discuss their music and how they use Ableton Live—a software music sequencer and digital audio workstation available at the NCSU Libraries.

State of Sound: Music Performance - Ableton University Tour” on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. in the Hunt Library Auditorium is a special University Tour stopover designed to inform and inspire music-makers of all proficiency levels. Keep your eyes on the Libraries’ social media for opportunities during the day to see how Ableton can be used as part of a creative workflow.

Ableton Live is available in the Music Rooms and Media Production Studios at the Hunt Library and the Music Booths and DML Studio at the D. H. Hill Library. Most of these rooms also feature the Ableton Push instrument, and, of course, there is a plethora of music-making equipment available for lending at Ask Us, including samplers, drum machines, synthesizers, and more.

“Learning how to produce audio, whether it's music, podcasting, or experimental soundscapes, is a valuable digital literacy and communication skill,” says Digital Media Librarian Jason Evans Groth. “Ableton is one of our most popular software options in the audio production spaces at Hill and Hunt. It's fun, powerful, engaging, and connects its users to larger communities of creators, the same way the Libraries does.”
