About our Ableton Live Course Curriculum

A thorough working knowledge of Ableton Live is essential if you're planning to be an electronic musician or club DJ. With its combination of powerful on-board virtual instruments, powerful arrangement tools and live-performance capabilities, Ableton is uniquely suited to the needs of today's electronic musician. When used with the right controller, Ableton is capable of being the only instrument you need for designing, recording and performing your mixes. As a digital audio workstation (DAW), Ableton Live functions much like the others, offering you the ability to record, mix and master your tracks in a virtual production environment with industry standard audio and MIDI processing. But unlike other DAWs, Ableton also provides a powerful, massive sound and loop library, along with a set of amazing features that enable you to mix, edit and beat match in real time. With up to 4000 loops, nearly 400 drum kits, three samplers, five synths and more, Ableton Live contains just about everything you need to create a world-class mix right there in the box. But there's more: Ableton also features a powerful “Session View” window which gives you unprecedented real-time control of your mixes, enabling you to add, remove, start, and stop any or all the loops in your mix while your tracks remain in perfect sync. With all this improvisational and real-time performance ability at your fingertips, it's little wonder that Ableton is the DAW of choice for DJs and live performers. If this is your dream, the Recording Connection can pair you with a mentor who specializes in electronic music and can teach you one-on-one about the ins and outs of Ableton Live. Whether your interests are in EDM, techno, house, trance or some other form of electronic music, you'll receive hands-on instruction on the power of this important software until it becomes second nature to you.
