Ableton Live is a software that is designed for live performance. In addition, one can work with sound design, composition, arranging, recording and editing. The program is often used by DJs because of its beat-matching, looping and crossfading features. Live is also popular among performing musicians as it also has a particularly good functionality in terms of real-time audio processing via plugins, and further through the Max for Live add-on.

Course leader is Sven Erga, sound designer at Nationaltheatret. He is also active as a musician and uses Ableton Live both on stage and in studio.
The course will go through most of the functions in Live, but focuses on making you familiar with the basic functions as quickly as possible and getting started with your own projects.
This will happen through teaching as well as student exercises.

We will also go through the setup of audio interfaces (sound card, interface) and MIDI controllers. Then we will go through more specialized features.
In order for everyone to get the most out of the course, it is important to bring their own laptop with Live installed. We expect you to have the latest version (version 10). Earlier versions than this are not recommended due to changed functionality.

Participants bring:
Laptop with Ableton Live 10 installed
Audio interface / soundcard
Microphone and cable
A midi controller with at least 4 faders or encoders as well as keys or pads. (May be Ableton Push, but not necessary)
We will help you set it up so it works as it should.

If you have any questions you can send an e-mail to the course leader
