In this 4 hour tutorial video, we cover all the groundwork functionality in Ableton Live to help you understand the tools and concepts of working in the program.
We lay down some beats, edit audio, play some instruments, create effects chains, create performance templates, and produce some music while explaining how it all works.
Excerpt, Farewell message by Encanti:
I have great news for everybody that’s investing in Electronic Dance Music: The EDM economic bubble is a hoax!
The main point that most music industry fortune-tellers seem to miss is that EDM is not just a generational musical preference, but the direct bi-product of technology innovation, and the new ways that we are capable of communicating.
Electronic means of making music will thrive as long as electricity powers our circuitry, and EDM will go on as long we we love to dance.
The events are only going to get better, the tastes will get more diverse, and the opportunities to participate will become more plentiful.
And since the “sound” of EDM is purely based on the capabilities and availability of technology, the tracks are only going to get better, more inventive, more inclusive of all new directions.
