In this series, you'll get to see how a song gets developed from scratch in Ableton Live. Your instructor, Paul (P-LASK), will start out using nothing but some of our Noiselab House Music Loops as a starting place. No matter what genre of music you create, lessons like these are great for you to see how various instruments and plugins can be used in creative ways to achieve the results in your mind. You'll see Paul masterfully use built-in tools like Wavetable, Echo, Auto Pan, and other effects to take a simple idea and develop into a working arrangement. He'll also make heavy use of Ableton's Sampler and demonstrate its broad versatility throughout the videos.

Lesson topics include:

  • Developing Songs from Basic Loops and Ideas
  • Wavetable Synthesis
  • Manipulating Sounds using Sampler
  • MIDI Editing
  • Effects Processing
  • Arrangement using Session View
