Book: Ableton Live 5 Power! - Preorder....

Post by AdamJay » Sat Oct 29, 2005 3:03 pm

the book "Ableton Live 5 Power!" by Chad Carrier and published by Thomson Course Technology will be available on November 15th.

you can preorder the book at 10% off the cover price HERE

As a member of the editing staff involved with this book, i recommend this book to anyone wanting to use Live 5 to its fullest. It provides a quality foundation for new users to become more familiar with Ableton Live, and also goes into great detail with regards to the new features in Live 5. This also makes it ideal for the experienced user who still wants to stay current with every feature the latest version of Ableton Live has to offer.
The Author, Chad Carrier did an excellent job tying together the basic functions and features with the advanced tools so that everyone can get the most from Live 5.


Also, "Ableton Live 5 CSi Master" CD-ROM will be available Nov. 22
and available for pre-order at 10% off HERE

an interactive CD-ROM that will include several hours of tutorials on the latest features in Ableton Live.
great for fast learning, and for folks who prefer visual demonstration.

the Live 4 CD-ROM had built in quizzing and a glossary.

you should know that the book "Ableton Live 5 Power!" will also include a small "LE" version of the CSi Master, with a couple examples to help you throw the book. However the full CSi Master CD-ROM will give you several hours of visual demonstrations.

Any clue how much has been added since the v4 power book. Probably just covered of the new features I would assume.

The power book by Chad & Dave for v4 was great BTW so I can definetly suggest the v5 book.

I would like to 'preview' a chapter or so from the book before buying it. I'm wondering if it is also interesting for someone who read the Live 5 manual several times?

Based on the v4 book it makes a nice addition to reading the manual. It elaborates and goes much deeper on some subjects than the manual itself. Lots of good power user tips etc.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this book,
ditto for the CSi Master CD-ROM.
In fact, I recommend both to the Live class I teach
(info here: http://andrew-duke.com/course.html).
And nope, I'm not connected to Chad Carrier or
Adam Jay or Brian Jackson (the man behind the
Live 5 CSi Master) and thus don't receive anything from
my "endorsement" :).

I purchased the book as well. Its very good and for once, I finally understand sample rates and bit depth. The book goes beyond Live and its well worth the investment. btw- I don`t even own Live, I`m still using the demo but its been an interesting journey nonetheless.
