Music Production in Ableton Live

There’s only one DAW that’s truly flexible enough to let you experiment with loops and ideas on the fly, arrange and produce full-blown tracks, mix with industry-standard tools, and take your songs to the stage. You guessed it: Ableton Live.

In our brand new course, Intro to Music Production in Ableton Live, you’ll learn the fundamentals of creating music and audio in this incredibly versatile and innovative digital audio workstation, and you’ll have turned a few random loops into a fully completed track! We’ll even introduce some of the most anticipated updates of Ableton’s exciting new version, Live 11.

We’ll look at strategies for recording and editing MIDI and audio, concepts related to arranging and composition to help you start creating solid musical ideas, and look at how to take a track from the studio to a live performance environment. (They don’t call it “Live” for nothing!)

This cutting-edge course, taught by Ableton Certified Trainer and music technologist Claire Marie Lim (dolltr!ck), contains all the tools you need to get started making amazing music with Ableton Live. We’ll look at strategies for recording and editing MIDI and audio, concepts related to arranging and composition to help you start creating solid musical ideas, and look at how to take a track from the studio to a live performance environment (They don’t call it “Live” for nothing!)
