This course is about looping audio and/or MIDI on the fly. Ableton Live excels at looping, as the DAW was designed with live performance in mind. That being said, there are multiple ways to approach looping in Ableton. It's important to learn the various approaches if you want to take full advantage of the software. Not only are these techniques great for live performances, DJ sets, etc. - they are also incredibly useful in a production workflow. These techniques can help you to have a seamless, nonstop flow of creative ideas where you'll rarely ever need to hit the stop button.

Lesson topics include:

  • Using the Capture feature introduced in Live 10
  • Recording and looping MIDI
  • Key mappings for looping
  • Recording MIDI effect output
  • The Looper device
  • Live looping audio
