Welcome to ULTIMATE ABLETON LIVE 11, PART 5: Audio and MIDI Effects!

In this course, we will use the real-world experiences of the award-winning instructor and university music production professor Dr. Jason Allen. But don't be worried - Dr. Allen is best known around campus for keeping things simple, accessible, useful, and fun.

Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes. 

He is also an ABLETON LIVE CERTIFIED TRAINER.

In this class, we are going to learn Ableton Live 11, and every aspect of the program. We will focus on how to do everything possible in Ableton Live, and you will finish this course as an expert in Ableton Live 11. Whether you have experience in music production already or not, this is the ultimate class to learn how to use the Ableton Live 11 software for any genre of music.

ULTIMATE ABLETON LIVE 11, PART 5 is everything you need to start making great tracks!

This is a really deep class - tons of content, tricks, and tips. Throughout the different "parts" of this class (there are six total) I'll go through literally everything I know about Ableton Live 11, and everything it took for me to become a Certified Trainer. I'll share some of my own tracks and give you some full sessions from my library to play around with and get you started.

In this part of the class, we are going to cover how to use the Live 11 software to make professional-sounding tracks by taking advantage of the huge selection of audio and MIDI effects built into the program. Including:

  • What are MIDI Effects?
  • Arpeggiator
  • All the MIDI Effects in Live 11 Suite
  • The 3 Types of Audio Effects
  • All the Drive Effects (Distortion)
  • All the EQ and Filter Effects
  • All the Modulator Effects
  • All the Pitch and Modulation Effects
  • All the Time and Space Effects
  • Compressors
  • All the Utility Effects
  • And Much, Much, More!

I will be making 6 (six!) complete "parts" in order to bring you the most comprehensive manual on Ableton Live production techniques ever created. Each class has Sets, sessions, and experiments for you to try on your own and follow along with.

You will not have another opportunity to learn about Ableton Live in a more comprehensive way than this.

The course is a roadmap to MAKING STUNNING TRACKS with Ableton Live 11.

All the tools you need to produce great tracks are included in this course and the entire course is based on real-life experiences - not just academic theory.

The course project

In this class, I'll walk through several projects that I want you to try on your own. Using Ableton Live is the only way to really learn it, so please follow along!

Project: Make a Track!

You now know enough about Ableton Live to make a track. Here are a few guidelines for this project:

  1. Make a track with at least 1 instrument track, using one of the built-in Live synthesizers.
  2. Make at least one track that is an audio track, and has some samples on it, like a drum loop.
  3. Add MIDI notes to your instrument track by playing them in, if you have a MIDI keyboard, or just by drawing them.
  4. Have at least 10 different clips - both audio and MIDI - in your project.
  5. Use at least 4 effects (audio or MIDI) in your session.
