The Ableton Thread

Recommended Posts

To anyone looking to learn the basics of Ableton; I just watched all of these videos and they're amazing. The videos are broken up into topics that make a lot of sense, and none of them are much longer than ~10 min.

nice find mate. helpful to many no doubt :thumleft:

Ableton hidden options.txt guide - allows enabling some features/changing some settings that can only be done by modifying this txt file

My favourite is the show device slots, so you can quickly see all the devices applied to a channel, without having to click on that particular channel

With Mitch's help and tutelage I am taking baby steps with Ableton.

What I have really enjoyed is using the effects like erosion to mess with vst synths and hardware synths can anyone think of any other good plug ins effects like erosion to play with the audio chain. I am trying to create abstract ambient music not bangers.

I am just using intro at the moment before I take the plunge and upgrade.

Thanks in advance.

Point Blank so some good courses. Well worth it. I did an ableton house course with them when I first got into Ableton and it helped a fair bit.

If your making ambient style stuff you should play about with the ping pong delay and reverbs.

The Corpus and Resonator effects units are good too but not included in the intro version

I think I will do the the course, I am just hoping they will do a intensive weekend course soon as the weeknight course is unfeasible.

They look good but they are twice the price.

I have had a really good Sunday with the program and I am thinking I may be able to teach myself the basics and go for an advanced course in a few months. Today I made some basic loops with the Tr-8 and mixed a spoken word track with an ambient piece. There is also a guy that does private tutoring on the program in my area.

Anyone djing on abelton I am thinking of trying it over traktor especially since the music I am djing is not bpm based now.

Late reply as I only just signed up. Ive done a little live stuff with Ableton and an APC40. If you had a controller with assignable parameters and sample triggers you could have some fun. The name of the game is to formulate a strategy and start simple. Having good gear helps too. What extra stuff are you hoping to introduce with Ableton?

 

I did some trippy ambient stuff once where I drenched the whole master in reverb and used the faders and lowpass filter controls on the APC40 to bring elements of the track in and out. Simple concept, just messing with a looped eight bar progression, worked well.
