For years I've been teaching Ableton Live in the college classroom. As a University Professor, my classes are sought after, and, frankly, expensive. I believe Ableton Live can be learned by anyone, and cost shouldn't be a barrier. This class uses the same outline and syllabus I've used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost.
This class is an excerpt of Ultimate Ableton Live: Part 4 - Synths & Samplers.The full course is available here on Udemy. But if you just want to test the waters of this class, then start here!
In the full class, Ultimate Ableton Live: Part 4 - Synths & Samplers, we cover tons of content, including all (all!) of the Ableton Live Instruments. Here is a summary of topics from that course:
You will not have another opportunity to learn Ableton Live in a more comprehensive way that this.

Praise for other classes by J. Anthony Allen:
Welcome! In this video I'll walk through what we are going to cover in this class, and how we are going to cover it.
First, we will walk through the basic outline and signal flow of Analog, paying special attention to our "4 Key Elements."
Now its time to get down and dirty: In this lesson we will program our own sounds, and explore some of the parameters in Analog.
A few extra features available to us in Analog, that we will also find in most of Ableton's Instruments.
Thats it for this class! Please leave me comments, feedback, and check out some of my other classes!
As a bonus, lets take a look at another instrument in Live: The Collision!
There is so much more to learn!
