ProducerTech – Ableton Live DJ’s Guide with Adam Goodlet — ProducerTech — Free download
Ableton Live is not just a hugely popular and powerful DAW, but also a highly effective and intuitive live performance environment for DJs. Whether you’re an experienced producer, a new Ableton user or an old school DJ looking for a powerful new creative tool, this extremely detailed course from Adam Goodlet, founder and owner of Re:Creation Studio, will fully equip you to step up in front of an audience with Live at your fingertips.
In the first half of the course, Adam demonstrates how to set up Live with all of the functionality of the most popular hardware DJ mixers . You’ll learn how to build a pioneer-style channel strip; add effects including loopers, delays, distortion and reverb; how to customise a cross fader and assign a cue output and how to lay out the mixer for maximum control.
In the second half of the course, you’ll learn the best way to work with samples and how to break down a track into stems for further manipulation, hugely increasing your creative possibilities. Next, you’ll be given an insight into the most popular 3rd party plugins and hardware MIDI controllers in use today, as well as the complete setup that Adam uses to take his DJing to the next level. Finally, you’ll be shown how to record and edit a mix that you can post online.
This comprehensive course is available in the new Producertech Academy, and can be streamed from the web 24/7/365. The tutorials come with the completed DJ template for Live built during the course, a channel FX rack for shaping and glitching tracks and 100MB of bonus FX samples courtesy of Loopmasters.
