Vespers is a beat-making robot sent back in time from the year 2502. He was banished from the future for repeat offenses of making excessively bass-heavy noises, leading to irreparable structural damage to the downtown core of Neo Tokyo. It is reported that his long-time sidekick and party companion “Go-Go”, a biogenetically enhanced fennec fox, also travelled back in time to join him in his exile. Vespers is known for his extensive and unpredictable glitches, which cause him to randomly spout tidbits of music production wizardry and secret techniques to virtually anyone who will listen. Kind of like the robot equivalent of Tourettes Syndrome. You can see hours of videos of him waxing poetic about all kinds of audio geekery on his Youtube channel. Legend has it that getting sent back in time was all part of his “master plan” to create a legion of bass worshipers who will take over the future. Although he isn’t human, he does have an puzzling affinity for jazz music and a fascinating preoccupation with saxophones. You can frequently catch him wreaking bassy-havoc and inciting funk-infused dancefloor mayhem at all kinds of music festivals and West Coast gatherings. WARNING: If there is a Vespers sighting in your area, ensure you protect yourself and your loved ones with heavy duty hearing protection and undertake standard earthquake readiness procedures.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT VESPERS..
Your workshop was brilliant…I wish I had taken it six years ago…I’m the classic case of building from the middle up and wondering why the foundation wasn’t there…
I’m in the process of reinventing my sound, investing in updated gear, and I’m really excited about the new energy and renewed enthusiasm I have for music creation…I was burning out from frustration, and feeling lost while everyone that was killing it made it seem so easy…you’re saving me buddy…thanks.

I don’t think i’ve sent you an email yet telling you how much i appreciate, and love watching your video tutorials! I’m a new ableton user, and really don’t like reading manuals… so, THANK YOU for learning so much about this program, and spreading it on Youtube for free! I think i can speak for all your viewers and say THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!
Vespers is an incredible teacher with a knack for simplifying the complicated things. His technique for quickly warp marking your tracks and loops was the single greatest video a beginning Ableton user could stumble across. I can honestly say that I would not enjoy Ableton nor utilize it as quickly and efficiently as I have without the help of Vespers as a teacher.
Well Vespers, you deserve a gold medal in my book for your Youtube channel because I’m excited to watch every one of your videos. Not only do you break things apart in an easy and comprehensive way but your videos have opened new doors for my approach on Live. I’ve been a Live user for almost 2 years and have never taken it to its full potential as I can now see is absolutely possible with your tutorials and techniques.

Your channel on youtube and your videos are the ONLY thing I have found that really delves into real techniques like layering, EQ, and other effects chaining. Thankfully I came across your videos before diving in and it has jump-started my whole learning process.
Vespers- I just wanted to give u props on what u doing. And ur willingness to help everyone aspiring to do creative things with music. After hours of videos on warping…. Ur one video had me on the path.. I finally got enough money to buy Ableton yesterday after my trial expired about 40 days ago. Thanks to you man… I will make amazing music and I will owe a part of it to you.
