Combining unique instruments with more traditional techniques has often been the way to create your own sound. In electronic music and beyond, the blending of styles and genres can help you break out of the loop-based and sample-pack production traps. In this very special tutorial and jam session, Point Blank instructor and lead course developer Ski Oakenfull is joined by tablaist Sirish Kumar Manji to show you how to record an instrument – in this case, tabla – into Ableton Live and combine it with electronic sounds in your productions.
