About This Courseintermediate

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.

This is Part 2: Recording and Warping

In this class we cover everything when it comes to recording in Ableton Live – including Recording techniques in general.

  • Recording Hardware Needs
  • Recording Hardware Setup
  • Microphone Types and Options
  • Microphone Purchasing Tips
  • Microphone Placement
  • Audio Interface Needs
  • Audio Interface Purchasing Tips
  • Single and Multitrack Recording
  • MIDI Hardware Needs
  • MIDI Hardware Purchasing Tips
  • MIDI Setup
  • MIDI Recording
  • …and much more!

I will be making 6 (six!) complete classes 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.

J. Anthony Allen is an Ableton Certified Trainer, and a PhD in Music Composition and master of Electronic Sounds. His music has been heard internationally in film, radio, video games, and industrial sound, as well as the concert hall and theater.

He is currently an adjunct professor of composition at the University of St. Thomas, Macphail Academy of Music, and the CEO of Slam Academy in Minneapolis.

Praise for other classes by J. Anthony Allen:

“Dr Allen does it again with his music theory for electronic musicians series. This course really opened up everything I learned from the 1st section and now I understand more about the composition side of things for music. I highly highly recommend this course to anyone!!! Really opened my eyes to many things I wasn’t aware of.”

“The Best Teacher ever, who makes you understand the ins & outs of Music Theory by all mean without giving what you don’t want to know.”

“I have never had any formal training in music at all. Trying to learn all the notes and how everything translated was a serious challenge. After going thru this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me.”

What are the requirements?

  • Taking Ultimate Ableton Live: Part 1 – The Interface & The Basics is a great place to start, but not required to get the most out of this course.
  • Access to Ableton Live will be required. Using the trial version (free for 30 days) would be a great way to start.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Learn how to record audio using the best techniques for the home studio
  • Know how to record MIDI using a keyboard input, controller, or manually inputting notes.
  • Understand and setup tracks for Warping using Live’s powerful Warping engine

Who is the target audience?

  • Students who want a comprehensive understanding of Ableton Live
  • Anyone working in a home studio that incorporates Ableton Live, and wants to improve their recording knowledge.
  • Anyone interested in production, who wants to program beats, synths, and basslines using MIDI.

    Great instructor. Great subjects
    Great explanations, very clear not leaving 'blanks' in the explanation. Direct to the spot. Many doubts cleared ! Let's move on to the next course !

  2. Kevin says:

    The detailed explanation of how Ableton handles warping was especially valuable.

  3. Kevin says:

    Great Course
    Great course. Really appreciate that J. Anthony also takes the time to set outside of the software to provide insight into the getting the right gear for Ableton. Have taken some other good ableton courses, but enjoy that the instructor provides some additional real-world guidance.
