Ableton Live, Beyond Music Production: Part 1: Audio

This class is for anyone who:

  • Produces music
  • DJ’s
  • Works in the field of audio engineering

And who wants to learn:

  • How to network a variety of applications to produce synchronised outcomes in audio

  • How to create your own templates in TouchOSC to control said applications wired or wirelessly

In this class we start with the very basics of Ableton and applications like RemixLive and Traktor Pro, all the way up to producing synchronised audio across mutiple applications. I walk you through every step of the process, and explain my logic behind every decision I make. I'll even walk you through a complete demonstration from beginning to end.

The goal of this class is for you to learn how to create co-ordinated audio for use in the home, venue, club or stage.

In this class I'll be using Ableton Live and I've gone to great lengths to make sure this class is useful to everyone, no matter what your experience.

I'm best known for working with electronic music and corporate audio visual events, but I've designed this course to be useful to anyone who has interest in the topics discussed.
