I am a beginner to all this music production and what not. i know basically nothing about music or what to do and how to make it sound good. I am interested in making more experimental like electronic music. Are there any good blogs or websites out there with ableton tutorials especially ones for beginners, info about music gear such as speakers and midi controllers or any other site you guys think will help me.

1. Read the Live's manual. Seriously ;)
2. idmforums.com is a good place to search for experimental music tutorials
3. if you want to make experimental music, try not to follow the tutorials, but learn the hard way - during experimenting ;)

Not to offend you, but based on your post, my first impression is you're not a native English speaker (nor am I). Tell us what is your native language, maybe someone will point you to tutorial-website written in it. It's always easier and more pleasant that way ;)

Might be. But I'm under impression, that the post has been edited, cause first time I've read it, it was pretty obvious to me.

Hi, the best Ableton website is http://www.macableton.com, where the tutorials are all free, and are written, which is the best format in my opinion. The site also contains lots of other resources.

You know, in this case, a Funken self plug is completely justified. It is what the OP was asking for. Hell, tarekith did it as well.

Can we keep this little dispute out of the music forum?

The best site I can think of, the one which (IMO) rules them all, is Synthtopia.

As the name implies its a site aimed at synthesizers, music production and what not in general. You'll find demo's and links to nice VST's (whether free or commercial), it keeps up with the latest news on this crazy world of DAW's (whether its Live, Reason or Komplete or smaller home-made solutions).

The best part of that website, once again IMO, is that because its visited by many different users (from hardware to software, from Live to Reason,etc, etc.) is that you also often get very interesting views on specific topics.

So far without turning into a flame fest either. I've seen Reaktor users make very solid points of critic on Max / Max for Live for example, and vica versa.

And the best part is that if any of the sites mentioned above have something really AWESOME to share, its very likely it'll end up on Synthtopia as well.


Of course, as many others, I also maintain a website / blog but its updates depend heavily on the time I have to invest (don't expect new posts every day or week).

URL is in my signature.

You mentioned the 'v' word and the website didn't have any ponies on them. That leaves people disappointed :lol:

Oh, if you go to my website, at the bottom of each page is a link called Useful Links. If you click on that I have a links page about 50 useful links with descriptions. Actually it used to have more, I had to take a couple down recently.
