In this video, Ableton Live Certified Trainer Will Doggett demonstrates how to set up a redundant live performance rig with Ableton Live.
For many performers, setting up a redundant rig would be overkill. But if you’re performing with large, complex live sets, performing for large crowds or in any potentially high-pressure performance situation, having a redundant live rig can make a lot of sense.
In the video, Doggett covers the elements of a redundant rig, including how to provide audio and MIDI redundancy for your setup.
“I think if you need to try and justify this setup-it’s probably not right for your environment,” notes Doggett. “But for the high pressure situations where something going wrong isn’t an option-this setup is a must.”
