The Advanced Course aims to expand students’ knowledge of Ableton Live, by teaching advanced techniques for composing, producing and performing. In addition to showing detailed operational features in the software, the modules also help students
to develop a good understanding of the key stages of music creation, including sampling, synthesizing and processing with effects. Throughout the course, techniques are combined and applied to practical situations to show how technical knowledge can be used to take your music in new and exciting directions. Through learning new skills, students will be able to free themselves from technical restraints and enable a clear path to channel their creativity and artistic vision.
