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 is Part 6: DJ Techniques & Controllers
In this class we are going to focus on using Ableton Live for DJing and Performing. I'm assuming that you already know your way around Ableton Live pretty well, and now you want to take your techniques to the stage. In this class I'll walk you through all the basics of using controllers, Audio Effect Racks, and some other tricks.
Also in the class I have a really special surprise. I've invited my friend James Patrick to show some of his techniques as well. James is a DJ that has toured the world, and is known internationally for his engaging performances. He is going to be IN this class, and has contributed several exclusive videos for this class.

In my other Ultimate Ableton Live classes, we've seen 3 other kinds of racks: MIDI Effect Racks, Instrument Racks, and Drum Racks. Audio Effect Racks are one more iteration of this theme - and to me, the most powerful.
The secret sauce to these effect racks is something called Parallel Processing.
This is a build-in preset that you should have already in your library, and is a popular tool for DJs to use for transitions.
Say good bye to your allowance money, and hello to the world of controllers.
Whenever we connect a new controller, we need to take a quick trip to our preferences to make sure it is all setup correctly.
For this section I've got a real treat: We are going to get some tips from world-renowed DJ James Patrick.
