In this class, we will focus on learning Ableton Live's recording and warping features. We will make our own recordings and learn to warp audio recordings to match the tempo and beat.
For years I've been teaching Ableton Live in the college classroom. As a University Professor, my classes are sought after, and, frankly, expensive. I believe Ableton Live can be learned by anyone, and cost shouldn't be a barrier. This class uses the same outline and syllabus I've used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost.
