Cost efficient Live training?

Post by Ursadorable » Mon Apr 08, 2013 1:37 am

Hi there,

I'm getting into electronic music as a hobby and have been dabbling with FL Studio. While it seems powerful enough, its way too obfuscated for a noob like me. After seeing all the voodoo of the new Push, I found a seller on eBay selling 4 new ones. I grabbed one, they all sold out in a couple hours of being listed.

Anyways, I'm looking to see if there's any cost effective Ableton Live training out there that won't break the bank. Bearing in mind that I'm a hobbist, by no means doing this for profit, I'm trying to find the cheapest training that won't give me bad advice.

I've looked at a few YouTube videos, but they pretty much assume you have prior Live useage and are somewhat familiar with Live's workflow. I'm not afraid to spend a few bucks, but I'm not looking at $500+ to do it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

There's no quick and easy way. Experience, books, youtube, vimeo, and of course, macableton.com.

I do now recall a set of videos from groove3.com, the one I saw was tips'n'tricks that was very helpful, but I think they have a few more you would benefit from, they should be inexpensive. Even if they're older versions, I'd look into it.

Depends on the manual, which I haven't received yet. Some are written in a way that they make alot of assumptions on your current skill level.. and I learn best by visual example. :)

Oh my.. yeah, I didn't know there were lessons built in. My Push and Live Intro won't arrive for a few weeks. :oops:

Sonic Academy has some pretty good videos about how to set up a basic tune completely from scratch, without any prior Live knowledge.

Soooo.. macableton.com then? :D

I've book marked the site and will take a further look when I get home. At quick glance, it appears rather homebrew in the site design..

I've also renewed my Lynda.com account which has a course and several videos.
