Shirty has created a homemade loop pedal and controller for Ableton Live from a computer keyboard. He plans to use this to perform his music live during his DJ sets.

His homemade setup offers many advantages over the popular loop pedals available on the market – most of all it’s ability to bring in additional pre-recorded sounds and melodies on demand to complement his performance on guitar.

During his presentation at the hack space he will perform some of his music, explain the building blocks of his setup, and talk through the advantages and possibilities created by using Ableton and a homemade pedal for live music performance.
