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.
Cakewalk Mutant R3VOLUTION is a suite of 200 all new sounds for Z3TA+ 2 that equips modern music producers with a sound-designer’s suite of ingredients for making techno, dubstep, trap, moombahton, electro, drum n bass, and every subgenre in between. This library is stocked with mind-bending leads, pro synthesis sound FX, and an enormous spotlight collection of growling, lazer-shooting, earth-shattering brand new mutant bass patches. Each preset was designed exclusively for Cakewalk by EDM producer Encanti (Ben Cantil) as the final installment of the Z3TA+ 2 Mutant Trilogy.
The audio examples of this preset library all contain excerpts from the 2011 Encanti free release Birdthump.
Izotope has also used Birdthump in their official Stutter Edit example video.
I will be instructing a course of two classes, all about producing and performing electronic music using Ableton Live 8 Suite, hosted by CEMMI (Collaborative Electronic Mixed Media Institute) at Artisan’s Asylum in Cambridge, MA, on Wednesday, May 16, 7PM – 10PM and Thursday, May 24, 7PM – 10PM.
Cakewalk Mutant Revenge is a suite of 300 all new sounds for Z3TA+ 2 that equips modern music producers with a heavy round of sonic artillery for dance floor warfare. This library is loaded with blistering hot leads, epic build ups, disembodied pads, cosmic synthesis FX, and a platinum collection of huge low-end mutant bass patches.
Cakewalk Mutant Rebellion is a suite of 300 all new sounds for Z3TA+ 2 that equips modern music producers with the sonic artillery for dance floor warfare. This library is rich with twisted takes on retro dance sounds, mutations of modern pop sounds, and face-melting custom creations. Each preset was designed exclusively for Cakewalk by psychedelic dubstep producer Encanti (Ben Cantil) who contributed to the sounds included in Z3TA+ 2.
