He plays touch-guitars (tapping guitars similar to a Chapman Stick), keyboards, electronic percussions and also sings. His musical style includes Ambient, Experimental, Avantgarde, Jazz and even Classical music. He also uses visual parts for performances – for example, the virtual orchestra (a modern and contemporary concept of live performing – the interaction between virtual and real musicians). He has mostly played in central Europe with many musicians from around the world like Jamaaladeen Tacuma, G. Calvin Weston, Krzysztof Majchrzak, Philippe Pipon Garcia, Eivind Aarset, Markus Reuter, José Terán, Luiz Márquez, Denovaire, Pepè Fiore, Peter Jan Marthe, Norbert Zehm, Charly Fischer, Harald Pröckl, Karlheinz Siessl, Kristian Tabakov and many many more.
He uses Gig Performer combined with many plugins such as Line 6 Helix. Here’s some action with Gig Performer:
Next week is his big performance 24h long and a live stream will be available.
Spaghetti were hot alright - 24 hours!
(I now imagine @dhj that says - Meh, I didn’t close Gig Performer for months )
Here’s some feedback - the live stream won’t have the replay, it is removed - they plan to release a “trailer” from the whole 24h. (I’ll post it here as soon as I get the link).
Harry said that he überlebt! and Gig Performer was rock-solid, and overall a “phenomenal tool” and his “control station”.
I’m very happy that all worked so well, I watched parts of the stream, also left a comment.
I have bunch of photos and here is my selection - Gig Performer in Action!
Hello Harry, I really enjoyed the presentation of your equipment and your use of GP (although there are no translation subtitles available in the youtube video - I am French).
Just one question: why are you using an old version of Midi Guitar which is a fundamental part of your setup? MG2 allows a much better tracking of the guitar, there are new important functions and new very interesting guitar fx like for example Deep Expressor (which I can’t do without ).
In any case, congratulations again for your installation which is very well designed and thank you for your music which delights me.
Thank you for your message. Why I’m not using MG2 - I have so many old Ableton setups - and my controlls will be lost by changing … but you are right. But why i’m not using MG2 in Gig Performer … when i activate the licence from MG2 the older Version is not running … so maybe about your message it will be time to move to MG2 thank you for your kind words.
Thanks @npudar for mentioning standalone, I haven’t tried that in an age.
I have used up to 2 MidiGuitar blocks and 1 MidiBass in the same patch. An MG on both the Melody and Bass sides of the Stick, and an MB on the bass side to catch lower notes MG does not reach.
Similar to @tonycore explanation here Overcoming the low end range restriction of MIDI Guitar 2 with GP - #2 by wtapia
At one point I even had all the MidiGuitar and synths in a separate instance of GP to the Audio processing. (Now I actually use setlists in Setlist view this could be much easier to coordinate than before!)
This is not possible in standalone, but it is a use case I currently don’t need so I shall experiment
Hi to all GP Users, just a nice short story about my workflow and process …
Many times I smiled when I see there are users who build their midi controllers in GP to look like the original hardware. Why? I switched my whole working process to GP and up from then - I did not really use MIDI controllers …
But now I have a solo gig - where I want to play some stuff from my good old ableton days - but it’s not worth to build this songs in GP (many loops and samples used). Now there I am - I visualized now my nanoKONTROL and nanoPAD in GP to control ableton … crazy, but it makes sense. I love the visual desktop in GP much more than to see the ableton screen.
For me it’s easier to use the rebuild controllers now in GP than the original hardware … because I need it only for some songs … 90% of the gig is played direct with GP.
