Best Ableton Training?

Post by Knuckles624 » Wed Nov 25, 2020 3:05 pm

Good Morning Folks!

I'm looking for recommendations on the best online Ableton training programs. I'm already musically trained having earned my masters degree in cello performance, so I don't need music theory, songwriting, or aural training. I really need a course focused on Ableton's core features and common techniques used in electronic music production. I'm also looking for courses on sound design, but that's secondary. Has anyone had experience with Berklee online? So far that looks closest to what I'm looking for. Thanks!

Hi, I am just curious, what are you looking for?
Live has built in lessons to get you started, the Live manual describes all the functionality and everybody has their own workflows depending on what they want to achieve.
I guess most of us did not take the academic route of a teacher teaching me how to use live...

But... There are Ableton certified trainers:

And I know that Rachel Collier and Mary Spender just created a course, but I don't know if that tends to your needs:

I'd start here:

https://www.ableton.com/en/live/learn-live/

Then if you need more check out warpacademy.com, which is run by Ableton Certified Trainers as well.

Dubspot had some cool YouTube tutorials i enjoy. Although some can be a little deep.

Any tutorial that goes through key commands always seems to help me.


Im subscribed to adsrcourses.com. They have pretty good tutorials especially with sound design.


That said it is hard finding one program that is great for ALL of Live. I would break things up.

Midi recording
Audio recording
Audio editing/Warping/slicing
Piano roll editing
Session view
Arrange View
Automation
Mixing/Production (tons of great stuff here).
Basic Ableton effects
Weird Ableton effects
Ableton samplers
Session to Arrange
Key commands
Templates


Ableton manual is pretty good to I might add. Ableton's own basic tutorials are great as well.
