There are tons of books, tutorials and videos dedicated to Ableton Live. In fact learning the interface is the easy part. But once you know how to warp clips and use a few plugins... well, the problem is that Ableton Live is so flexible that there isn't one 'right' way of working with it.
You have to figure out a way to make sense of all this power, and how it will work for you.
At LSS we do more than teaching a list of functions: we understand what you want to achieve and suggest the best course of action: which midi controllers to use, how to setup a template to use Live on stage and one for Live in the studio, what to automate and what to leave to improvisation, etc...
LSS was the first to offer dedicated training on Ableton Live, and over the years we have helped many producers, DJs, and composers, to make the transition to a new way of performing and creating music.
The list of Ableton courses has moved to
"The instructor really knows his stuff and it was quite inspiring to get some very useful tips "
"After a DVD course and two books I was so bored I had almost given up... in one day you showed me all that I needed to know and I am making some sweet tracks... Thanks!"
Abbleton? Abelton? Alberton? A definition of Ableton
Why is it called like that, nobody knows. But here is an attempt to explain what it is, and how it compares to everything else.
Ableton Live is a Digital Audio Workstation that can be played like an instrument (pay attention: we are not talking about playing a virtual instrument, we are talking about playing the workstation itself)
Well, it's a lot more, but no other software allows you to interact with sequenced music this easily, and that's what makes Ableton so special.
Without ever having to stop the music, you can choose to speed up or slow down the music, repeat a section, skip another, you can set the conditions for a certain amount of improvisation and then regain control at any moment, just like you would with a few good musicians...
