Michael Mayeda (fka DJ Megaman) returns for a second “School of Sounds” season with a brand new look. The new batch of tutorials focus on Ableton Live 9 and Push controller. In this first episode, Mayeda produces a remix of Trinidad Jame$’s “All Gold Everything” on the fly – showing us how to quickly lay the foundation of a remix.
What Is Ableton Live 9?
Create, produce and perform. Create ideas, make changes without stopping, and capture everything as you work. If you’ve used music software before, you’re already familiar with one half of Ableton Live. Live’s Arrangement View is a familiar working space: time moves from left to right, while tracks are stacked vertically. But Live also features the revolutionary Session View: a unique sketchpad for improvising, playing and performing with musical ideas, without the constraints of the timeline. Freely and independently start and stop any number of audio or MIDI loops – everything stays in sync. Almost everything in Live works in real-time – add, reorder or remove devices, play with Live’s flexible track routing and more – all without interrupting your creative flow.
The instruments and sounds you need to make music. Live comes with a collection of instruments, sounds, kits and loops for creating any kind of music.
5 Synths and 3 Samplers
Live’s raw devices are the foundation of sound design in Live, including FM and physical modelling synthesis as well as sampling.
390 Drum kits
Classic analogue drum machines, one-shot samples and multi-sampled acoustic drum kits.
Over 3000 Sounds including vintage synthesisers, acoustic instruments and cutting-edge combinations of sampling, effects and synthesis.
Audio and MIDI patterns, ready to use in your own productions, covering everything from 60s Soul and Hip Hop to electronica.
