Introduction to Ableton Live

Electronic Music Production,

The new version of Introduction to Ableton Live featuring Ableton Live 10 will launch on April 20! In the past, Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) were programs used only by audio engineers with a highly specific knowledge base, on machines inaccessible to most people. But over the past 10-15 years, DAWs and the act of recording music have evolved from being a luxury of the few to being available to the masses. Ableton Live is one such application. Used by an extremely broad range of music creators, Ableton Live not only facilitates the work of engineers, producers, and writers in professional, home, and mobile studio settings, but it is also a powerful platform for musicians on stage, in the DJ booth, and elsewhere. In this Ableton Certified Training Center course developed by Berklee Online, you will explore some of Live’s most powerful and useful functionality: MIDI programming, audio recording, warping and processing, looping editing, mixing, performing, file management, and troubleshooting. Meant to be a springboard for those who are new to Ableton Live and/or DAWs in general, this three-week course will provide you with a strong knowledge base for using Live to take your musical ideas from conception to final recording. The course breaks down the many barriers of entry into music technology and encourages all those who wish, to create fearlessly. Note: If you do not own Ableton Live 10, you can download the free, fully featured Ableton Live Trial. The trial version will allow you to save and export your work for 30 days. If you use the trial version, do not download it until the course is scheduled to begin.

ableton live

It's an introduction for the world of Ableton Live.

great start to ableton live for a newbie I was so happy with my results after taking this course with Erin!

This was a great introductory course and it inspired me to take a full length Ableton Live course.

Super-annoying voice, lack of explaining many details, moving too fast - Ableton Live has a far better self tuition options.

Really good course, helps you learn and understand the basics of Ableton Live.

I understand the basics of Ableton Live 9 now after I completed the course.

Perfect Starting point to Ableton Live!!!

music production

I didn't have any previous experience with music production or composing, but managed to complete the course and learned a lot.

Before this course I took the Technology of Music Production course as well which was of great help in understanding the notions in this course.

Also without prior knowledge of music production, the assignments can be somewhat tough.

Go ahead if you're looking for digital music production even remotely!

This is a great course to introduce anyone interested in music production.
