For years I've been teaching Ableton Live in the college classroom. As a University Professor, my classes are sought after, and, frankly, expensive. I believe Ableton Live can be learned by anyone, and cost shouldn't be a barrier. This class uses the same outline and syllabus I've used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost.
This is Part 6: DJ Techniques & Controllers
In this class we are going to focus on using Ableton Live for DJing and Performing. I'm assuming that you already know your way around Ableton Live pretty well, and now you want to take your techniques to the stage. In this class I'll walk you through all the basics of using controllers, Audio Effect Racks, and some other tricks.
Also in the class I have a really special surprise. I've invited my friend James Patrick to show some of his techniques as well. James is a DJ that has toured the world, and is known internationally for his engaging performances. He is going to be IN this class, and has contributed several exclusive videos for this class.

I will be making 6 (six!) complete classes in order to bring you the most comprehensive manual on Ableton Live production techniques ever created. Each class has Sets, sessions, and experiments for you to try on your own and follow along with.
And of course, once you sign up any part, you automatically get huge discounts to all the upcoming parts of this class. You will not have another opportunity to learn Ableton Live in a more comprehensive way that this.

Praise for other classes by J. Anthony Allen:
The secret sauce to these effect racks is something called Parallel Processing.
There is a whole folder of audio effect racks in already in your Ableton Library. In this section I'll take a look at a few of them.
Whenever we connect a new controller, we need to take a quick trip to our preferences to make sure it is all setup correctly.
We've seen some MIDI Mapping before, but now we are going to incorporate it into our controllers. Mega Power!
