I founded Oaktone in 2020, but I've been performing onstage with a computer weekly for over a decade. While Ableton Live has made this a breeze most of the time, I'm always on the lookout for tools and tricks to maximize the experience for my band and me.
Thanks to Max for Live, the programming language that allows Ableton Live users to add additional functionality to an already feature-rich platform, I've managed to create a few solutions that didn't exist already.
Since performing with a computer sometimes makes people nervous, I've made it my top priority to build products that are reliable.
Aesthetics are a significant part of the creative experience so I've worked hard to create interfaces that are intuitive and nice to look at.
After using these devices in my Live sets for years, I decided to launch Oaktone and make them available to others who probably have the same needs as I do.
On the Fly In-Ear Slates
There are other options for launching cues in Ableton Live but if you've tried a few, you'll understand how valuable the CueList that comes with Taz can be. And when it comes to a solution for making and editing slates on the fly in rehearsal or onstage, nothing else comes close to the convenience of Taz Pro.
Included with Oakboard
Taz Lite is a simple but reliable cue launching application. It's available to download for $19.95 or it comes free with the purchase of an Oaktone Oakboard MIDI controller.
"We’ve used TAZ the last few years for a big production we do and it’s awesome. Band loves it. Great work!"
Mike Moore, Worship & Communications Pastor
