Ableton continue to aid new music producers with the launch of their latest website, which is a free online resource that teaches the basics of music production.
Real songs are used in the lessons, including Beyoncé’s ‘Single Ladies’ and Bob Marley’s ‘Get Up, Stand Up’, whilst there is also a section where users can put their new found knowledge to use and create their own tracks. This can then be exported to Ableton Live in order to make finishing touches.
There are seven categories available, called Chapters, and out of these there are additional lessons that cover a wide range of topics, and the website, which is visually similar to Ableton’s Live Clip launch page, requires no additional equipment.
Alongside the new site, Ableton has also released a series of online video tutorials, as well as publishing a new book called Making Music — a publication designed to help new producers.
Ableton’s Loop convention returns this November in Berlin. Registration for the event is open now.
