Start producing your own music from the ground up! Ableton Live is a groundbreaking program whose unique nonlinear, incredibly flexible features set it well apart from all the other digital audio applications. It is equally at home with making beats, remixing, live recording, DJing, live looping, sound design, electronic music, hip-hop, and much more. Unlike other books about Live that simply explain its features like a second manual, this hands-on-centric book is a series of exercises that will walk you through all the features you need to use Ableton Live 8 to make an actual track from start to finish. Also included are audio content to assist the process and screen-cast videos of the exercises, so you can learn at the pace and in the way that suits you. A substantial appendix section offers discussions of important non-Ableton-specific topics including digital audio basics, components of a producer's studio, considerations when buying a DAW computer, and more. In addition to over 20 years of making electronic music, certified Ableton trainer Jake Perrine has over a decade of experience teaching audio production, so not only does he know what he's talking about, he knows how to make sure you know what he's talking about! Whether you want to DJ, make mashups and remixes, play with a band, or build epic dance anthems from scratch, this book will show you all you need to know to achieve your goals with Ableton Live 8.
