I love Ableton Live. I’ve been using it for about 9 months now and I just keep running into new things. It’s a playground for music producers. I admire the design – it feels like Live is designed from ground up to foster creativity in electronic music production. I love watching how other people are using it.
Youtube is full of tutorials, but it’s not always easy to run into something really interesting or inspiring and well presented. I’ve been bookmarking some good ones since I started learning the software. So here are a few of the best Ableton Live tutorial videos I’ve come across. Have a look – you just might run into a game changer. I know I have.
