Description

100% Answer Rate!  Every single question posted to this class is answered within 24 hours by the instructor. For years I’ve been teaching Ableton Live and Max 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.MaxForLive is a powerful tool that lets users design their own instruments, effects, and devices. It isn’t without its drawbacks: MaxForLive is notoriously difficult to learn. I’ve developed an approach for teaching MaxForLive that focuses on teaching it like a language: You will learn small blocks and patches, understanding the how and the why along the way. As we grow our vocabulary, we “learn how to learn” more and more.Topics include:The unique and quirky history and development of MaxWhat we can do with MaxForLiveMax vs. MaxForLiveThe MaxForLive DevicesFinding and Sharing MaxForLive DevicesGetting Help: Help Windows in MaxForLivePresentation Mode & Patching ModesThe Max EditorMessagesBangs & ButtonsProject 1: Building a MIDI DelayProject 2: Building an ArpeggiatorWorking with Audio SignalsProject 3: An Audio Delay~ Objects (tilde objects)Presentation SetupControlling LiveAbstractionsControlling anything in LiveProject 4: A Beat-Quantized Randomized FilterFinding the Beat from LiveProject 5: Artificial Intelligence (sort of)… And much more!!!Also included in this class are 6 of my own MaxForLive patches for you to download, dissect, use, and build on.And of course, once you sign up for any part, you automatically get huge discounts on all my other Ableton classes. You will not have another opportunity to learn Ableton Live in a more comprehensive way than this online.J. Anthony Allen is an Ableton Certified Trainer and a Ph.D. in Music Composition and master of Electronic Sounds. His music has been heard internationally in film, radio, video games, and industrial sound, as well as the concert hall and theater.He currently is an adjunct professor of composition at the University of St. Thomas, Macphail Academy of Music, and the CEO of Slam Academy in Minneapolis.Praise for other classes by J. Anthony Allen:”I’ve had Live Lite for a while but never quite understood how to use it because of the different options in how to arrange audio. This course explains exactly how to do that and get the most out of Live.””Great overview – I would start here for sure if you are just getting your feet wet with Live. clear and to the point. session walkthroughs are great. looking forward to more””I have never had any formal training in music at all. Trying to learn all the notes and how everything translated was a serious challenge. After going thru this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me.”
