    #160 - Jesse Terry

    In this episode Jesse Terry shares his experiences leading Ableton's team in designing Push and the APC40. Dan and Jesse also discuss the process of designing Push, new and potential features to come, Jesse's favorite gear and Live devices, his music projects, and more. 



    Jesse Terry joined Ableton in 2005 working in artist and partner relations, which led him to help design the first dedicated Ableton controller, the APC40 (made in collaboration with Akai Professional). Since that time he built up a hardware team at Ableton focused on making Ableton Push and looking towards the future of hardware at Ableton. His work at Ableton includes looking into sustainability, manufacturing and user experience – but his main focus is making the product he uses every day better for the variety of users who have adopted it. He is a multi-instrumentalist and student of many kinds of music; in his free time he plays guitar, bass and keys and produces electronic and hip-hop under the alias Jethroe and with his band Countach. Jesse currently lives in Philadelphia.

LA.CO.NY. ,

Amazing free Ableton tips and inspo!

This show is what we need more of! As a beginning female music producer trying to make it, I appreciate how these conversations are real convos about how people have come up, what inspires them, what their failures are, and some favorite plugins and strategies they have. This is one of the few music making podcasts that’s both technical and philosophical/inspirational. Highly recommend to any producer, seasoned or not!

The Luminati ,

Bomb AS Frick

Free Ableton Live gems - one of the best resources for producers in podcast form. Thanks for all the inspiration D. Geffski!

Ihearttwat ,

Dan G, the chillest emcee, is the man you should see

The podcast rules. It’s got some nerdy bits for Ableton users, but 96% of it is good for any musician. Great chats with music-makers who are making it happen. Dan is a great interviewer.

Started with the podcast, joined the Facebook group, the live session group, and Discord. I got a sick discount in Ableton Live Suite from his website. I highly recommend you check out what this guy is up to.
