Ableton live is a real-time audio production tool that eliminates the boundaries between composition, performance, recording and sound design. You can easily combine loops, phrases and songs from diverse origins. Create music on the fly, without being bound to a fixed timeline. You can improvise song arrangements, instantly drop samples on cue, and interact with other performers, musicians or DJs, record, multi-track audio or real-time loops. Instantly change the tempo, melody, groove and sonic signature of your sounds at any time. Live 9 can combine all of these possibilities in a simple and friendly environment that lets your creativity flow without limitations.
This is an exciting and intensive 2-day crash course that’s been designed for for complete beginners or people looking to enhance their existing knowledge of Ableton. You will be assigned a workstation and will go through the subjects necessary to use Ableton in an efficient and productive manner. The objective of the course is to enable the student to produce songs in their preferred style using the software including its instruments and processors.
You can take this course either in a small group or on a one to one basis. The course is very intensive but still fun and can be taken over one or two days during weekdays, evenings or weekends. You also have the option of studying this course on a one to one basis where you can change the course content and timetable to suit your personal requirements.
This course is also particularly suitable for people who are thinking of purchasing a home studio or PC workstation but have yet to decide what soundcard, keyboard or software would be the most suitable for their needs. Our tutors and advisors are able to offer informed and impartial advice that will help you choose the best combination of hardware and software to suit your budget.
