K’ LIVE – the website not only for live keyboardists
For more than 30 years I’m on stage as a keyboardist. In the beginning though, round about 1977 (!), I was rather called an “organist”. Bit by bit I upgraded my equipment and soon owned a Fender Rhodes and a Solina-Strings in addition. (Malicious tongues would claim, only to quit the status of an organist. 😉
Only a few years later I had the opportunity to explore the basics of the sythesizers on aMicromoog.The first synthesizer I owned was a KORG Poly 61, with whom digital synthesizers became affordable. Over the years I had an uncountable number of synthesizers, keyboards and work stations, the enumeration of which would go beyond the scope of this page. These also include milestones asYamaha DX7 and Roland D 50.
The bands, in which I played, were numerous too. As of the mid-90ies I didn’t belong to a fixed outfit, but was regularly booked by several bands as a temp. Not only but especially since then, I constantly received amazed looks and much appreciation for my sounds. That did not change until today, therefore, I would like to impart my acquired knowledge and experience from more than three decades within the framework of my webinars.
Within the following list you will find an excerpt of the topic range I can cover.
a transparent and effective stage sound
how to use splits and layers correctly
how to develop complex sound combinations
how to work out songs, that are “heavy on the keyboard“, for a live performance
the reasonable use of controllers
the “secret weapon” MIDI-matrix (MIDITEMP)
MIDI and audio recording in the home studio
Maybe you can even let me know, what you would be interested in via the contact button below. When it comes to coaching, several options are possible – a webinar, if there is sufficient demand, or – as an alternative – a one-to-one session. I’m looking forward to receiving your suggestions.
PS: I almost forgot to explain the addition in the headline: The use of electronic sound devices in the home studio – plus the corresponding software, virtual instruments etc. – are also included in this topic. Well then …
