Course Description

Welcome to ULTIMATE ABLETON LIVE 10 COMPLETE: PART 1!

In this course, we will use the real-world experiences of the award-winning instructor and university music business professor Dr. Jason Allen. But don't be worried - Dr. Allen is best known around campus for keeping things simple, accessible, and useful.

Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated Udemy instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes.

He is also an ABLETON LIVE CERTIFIED TRAINER.

In this class we are going to focus on using Ableton Live 10, and every aspect of the program. We will focus on how to do everything possible in Ableton Live, and you will finish this course as an expert in Ableton Live 10. Whether you have experience already in music production or not, this is the ultimate class to learn how to use the Ableton Live 10 software for any genre of music.

ULTIMATE ABLETON LIVE 10 COMPLETE: PART 5 is is everything you need to do everything in Ableton Live 10!

This is a really deep class - tons of content, tricks, and tips. I'll go through all of the Ableton Live Instruments in this class, with considerable detail on each one. We will also talk about synthesis tricks and tips, getting most out of your samplers, and tons of production tips. In this course, we will cover:

  • Navigating the 2 Views of Ableton Live
  • Arrangement View
  • Session View
  • Whats New in Live 10
  • Info View, Help View, and "Learning how to Learn" Ableton Live
  • Using the Clip Slot Grid
  • Live's Signal Flow
  • Recording Audio
  • Recording MIDI
  • Recording to the Arrangement
  • Editing Audio and MIDI
  • Automation
  • The Groove Pool
  • Full Track Deconstructions
  • And Much, Much, More!

I will be making 6 (six!) complete classes in order to bring you the most comprehensive manual on Ableton Live production techniques ever created. Each class has Sets, sessions, and experiments for you to try on your own and follow along with.

And of course, once you sign up any part, you automatically get huge discounts to all the upcoming parts (the next 5!) of this class.

You will not have another opportunity to learn Ableton Live in a more comprehensive way that this. Start here.

The course is a roadmap to MAKING STUNNING TRACKS with Ableton Live 10.

All the tools you need to produce great tracks are included in this course and the entire course is based on real-life experiences - not just academic theory.
