Ableton Live for Beginners (Lite)
This is the free "lite" version of the full, 89-lecture tutorial course, Ableton Live for Beginners.
The free version contains a ton of really useful information and will give you an idea of how I like to teach my courses. We'll learn how to navigate the user interface, creating new tracks, recording and editing midi, recording and editing audio, audio effects, and much more.
I created this course because of a feeling.
You probably know the feeling. It's the feeling you get when you start something new. It's unexplored territory. It's exciting but frightening. It's promising but humbling. I love that feeling but it can be overwhelming to start something new. That's why I created this course. I want to teach you the essential foundations of music production in Ableton Live so that you can be encouraged and have fun making music.
My goal with this course is to get you up and running in the shortest amount of time possible. If you have just unboxed the software for the first time and need someone to give you a quick run-down of what's possible, this free course is for you.
If you enjoy it and find it beneficial, I hope you'll consider enrolling in the full course. Thanks!
