Advanced Ableton Live

Testimonials

Harris Frangou

A great course for the beginner to the expert learning basics as well as new ideas and concepts from world class pros in this game. This course all forms of music not just certain genres.

Robin Gee-Cutting

I went into the Advanced Ableton Live course unsure what to expect. I have been making music and using Ableton for a very long time and was worried I wouldn’t learn much from the course. Upon completion of the course, I couldn’t be happier. I learnt some excellent tricks that I will be using in my workflow from now on and feel we really pushed the program to its limits. This experience was only made better by the tutor. I would recommend the course to anyone.

Kane Bull

The Advanced Ableton course was exactly what I needed to gain further confidence and know-how to work on my own projects and have the understanding of how the instruments function, how the effects were altering specific sounds and the capabilities of the Live software and external plug-ins. The structure and pace of the course is great and allows for any questions, explanations and demonstrations. I feel much more confident using Live and am very excited and inspired to continue leaning and work on my own projects. A massive thanks to the SOS crew.
