If you have not had an opportunity to learn from this master musician and synthesizer guru, check out his recently completed 14-part series:
In the first installment of this series, we discussed several different configurations of PERFORMANCES for your MONTAGE. Here you will use what you learned (and created!) to take a closer look at putting together your own LIVE SETs.
