This course is about how to use MIDI Effects to compose MIDI chords and melodies. You'll learn how to use the built-in effects in Ableton Live, as well as Max 4 Live, to generate new ideas in a very musical way. By leveraging these effects (essentially MIDI processors), you can take simple incoming MIDI input and convert it into new musical ideas that are interesting and unique - you'll create ideas that you may normally otherwise not consider. These techniques are great for musicians who already have theory knowledge and are seeking inspiration for new ideas, as well as for those who are new to music theory - these techniques are a great way to learn about chords and melodies, and make it easy to come up with ideas quickly.
