Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Jason Edleman and welcome to my course Introduction to Ableton Live 9. I'm an independent composer and musician. I have my early roots in rock and soul as a working drummer and singer. When I was in music school I quickly gravitated to the electronic music lab, and that is where I feel most comfortable. Digital audio workstations are a fantastic place to start, and that is why I picked Ableton Live 9. Live 9 has a simple-to-use interface, allowing you to lay down ideas quickly, and it provides professional quality at a reasonable price. It's used by many professionals, artists such as Deadmau5, Orbital, Nine Inch Nails, and Korn. In this course we're going to build out a piece of music from scratch, all the while teaching you how to use Live 9. Some of the major topics that we will be covering will include learning how to get around the tool and setting up MIDI controllers and microphones. We'll cover recording live audio and MIDI. We'll learn such things as warping, converting to MIDI and applying grooves. We will learn how to create submixes, apply effects, and learn how to export your mix for final mastering. And finally, you will learn how to share your music on SoundCloud and Blend. By the end of this course, you'll know everything you need to create a fantastic and professional-sounding piece of music. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with some audio concepts and music composition, but if not don't worry, we'll get you up and running with as little theory as possible. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Ableton Live 9 with the Introduction to Ableton Live 9 course at Pluralsight.
