What You Talkin' Bout, Willits?

Guitarist and electronic musician Christopher Willits gives the first of many lessons on home recording. In this episode, Willits starts with the basics: how to get sounds from your guitar into your computer using pedals, pickups, and Ableton Live. Tune in once a month as Chris tackles the different aspects of home recording–from which gear gives you which sounds to his take on the best available software programs.

Coming Soon
On a very special XLR8R TV, artist Matt Furie loses his ability to draw and on his quest to regain it, he finds something even more valuable...himself.

Very Cool! Willits makes amazing stuff. Such a down to earth guy with music in outer space. Always wondered how people would use that software live with instruments.

It's very cool to see you showing your setup. I would like to see you explaining some of your glich-spraying MAX effects. Good work.
