Ableton Live 8 differs slightly from traditional production and Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) programs in that it’s also designed to be used during a live performance. So you can build your tracks from the ground up, and perform them all in the same user interface. The obvious advantage to this is that the artist doesn’t have to learn/use two separate user interfaces, allowing them to focus on the more on the content of their performance.
These differences in Ableton may or may not appeal to you as an artist. Remember, it’s important to try as many different music production software platforms as you can to find what’s right for you.
As usual, I found a video series to share with you, this one is made by Dub Spot, an amazing, cutting edge music production school in New York City. They also have online classes which I highly recommend checking out. The classes are expensive, but they’re very in depth and basically guarantee that you’ll create your own professional-sounding tracks.
Sorry I couldn’t find part 3 =/
Check out DubSpot’s YouTube channel here. They have tons of more free video tutorials which can give you an idea of what you can expect from one of their classes.
