    Great intro to Live

    I got Live 9 Lite with my Novation pad, and even though the course is in Live 8 Full it worked very well. The content is very informative, and comprehensive enough for being a free intro course. Whenever I had problems with production quality, I think it was because of my own connection from my country house. The Instructor Mitch Lee is great.

    Great start for a newbie

    If you've never used abelton before this is a great intro. It starts with the basics and takes you through to creating a complete track. It is paced perfectly and flows well. I was used to more traditional DAWs so a lot of the concepts were familiar but they are handled in a new way in ableton. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who has never used it before.

    Excellent Course

    The instructor was dead on amazing and at times inspired. Going through the course really helps one to understand Ableton and the thought process that goes into creating music tracks.
