Ableton 201 - Advanced
This is an Ableton Live course where you will learn about sound design, synthesis, sampling and advanced mixing techniques to further refine and develop your productions. Students will apply the ideas and techniques learned throughout the class with hands on examples that reflect different parts of the music production process. This course is a great sequel to my 101 course and also good for someone looking for more advanced Ableton knowledge.

The course is broken down into two (6 hour) class days and two (2 hour) workshop days where you will be able to have your questions answered, work on projects, receive feedback and share with the class.

You will receive quick key charts, reference materials, term sheets and other production materials.
