In this course, Ableton Certified Trainer Yeuda Ben-Atar demonstrates how to use Ableton Live to its fullest potential in a live performance setting. First, learn how to choose the best MIDI controller to use with Ableton Live, and how to set it up properly to be used on stage. Then dive deeper into how to use MIDI mapping to get the most out of your controllers with Live. Next, Yeuda shares a number of techniques he employs as a live performer, like using cue points, looping, scratching, applying effects, and playing samples. He then shows how to create a live set, including organizing, exporting, and adding instruments and building custom effect racks.
Along the way, Yeuda reveals many live performance tricks using control surfaces and custom MIDI controllers that he's built, plus tips for playing and syncing up with other musicians and recording your live performance.
This course is about live performance and is designed for DJs, music producers, and any other musicians. I'm going to assume that you have a basic knowledge of Ableton Live and have access to at least one MIDI Controller, such as the Novation Launchpad or a standard MIDI Keyboard. If you need a refresher on using Live, you can check out Ableton Live 8 Essential Training or my Up and Running with Ableton Live course on the lynda.com online training library. Additionally, having a basic working knowledge of the MIDI Protocol will help you in understanding of the topics covered in this course.
That said, I created this course to be accessible to everyone. If you're new to live performance or making music with your computer in general, I hope that the techniques I'll be sharing with you will be informative and inspirational. Other than that, all you need is the passion and desire to take your live performance with Ableton Live to the next level.
