About our Ableton Live Course Curriculum
If you aspire to be an electronic musician or club DJ, Ableton Live is a must. Unlike other digital music production software, Ableton is specifically designed to meet the needs of electronic musicians, combining the best of in-the-box virtual instruments with powerful arranging capabilities and dynamic live-play features. When combined with a controller, Ableton could easily be the only instrument you need to create, record and perform your mixes.
Like other digital audio workstations, Ableton Live can work as a basic virtual music production studio, allowing you to record, mix and master your tracks on the timeline, with industry-standard audio and MIDI processing at your fingertips. But the true power of this software comes in the form of a massive sound and loop library combined with real-time mixing, editing and beatmatching capabilities. Depending on which edition you’re working with, you can have up to 4000 on-board loops, 390 drum kits, five synthesizers, three samplers and more than two dozen packs of other preset sounds at your disposal, giving you virtually everything you need to create a world-class mix.
But Ableton’s secret weapon is its “Session View” window, a dynamic workspace which enables you to add, remove, start, and stop all the loops in your mix “on the fly” while your song remains perfectly in sync. Perfect for live performance and improvisation, it’s a DJ’s dream!
If you dream of being the next great name in EDM, techno or house music, the Recording Connection can place you with a producer skilled in electronic music who can teach you one-on-one as you learn to leverage the true power of Ableton Live, both in the studio and in your home rig.
