The Recording Connection Teaches You Ableton
The premiere DAW software for electronic musicians and DJs alike! Learn it here.
If you ask some of the most prominent electronic music greats what software they use in their music production, chances are you’ll hear “Ableton.” Among the noteworthy acts who use it: Deadmau5, Skrillex, Daft Punk, Bassnectar and many others.
Specially created to meet the production needs of electronic musicians, Ableton Live offers a huge array of crystal-clear virtual instruments, along with a dynamic mixing/editing environment and a set of powerful features for real-time performance. Combined with a controller, Ableton has enough in-the-box tools to be your only instrument for recording, mixing, arranging and performing, if you so desire. No wonder so many club DJs and electronic music producers consider Ableton to be an absolute must.
As far as the basics, Ableton Live works much like other DAWs, affording the ability to record, arrange, process, mix and master both audio and MIDI tracks right on the timeline. But what electronic musicians like most about Ableton is its ability to combine a massive array of on-board sounds and loops with unmatched real-time editing capabilities. A favorite feature is the “Session View” workspace which gives the musician/producer the ability to start, stop, add, remove and mix tracks and loops “on-the fly” in real time while the song itself remains in perfect sync. Not only does this feature enable quick editing in the production environment, but it also allows for live performance re-mixing and improvisation—a perfect feature for DJs.
