Transcripts

1. Ableton Live For Beginners Introduction : Hello guys, my name's gamer Felix have a professional musician and today I want to talk about my new course, EBITDA live for beginners. Yes, I'm going to teach you all of this step-by-step to produce your own songs on Ableton Live, we're going to talk about effects, delay, reverb, corals, flanger, Starship over derived. So it was a great course if you don't know how to apply those effects on your songs, how to create drone lives, guitar loops, how to create music. We did virtual instruments, meek songs, and off course, how to produce your own songs and label it on life. Think discourse, great, chew, guitar player, bases, drums, are any, any kind of musician than one, produce your own songs at home and style. Ron Paul, how's funk music, R&B, techno heap pop in every single style. Which isn't because EBITDA was a great software. We have several very nice 2s to produce our own songs. Okay, this course is for beginners for all this and develop all the lessons step-by-step, okay? If you don't know any fee and bow able to tones course going to be great for your array. And if you have any kind of doubts, yes, send me a message, fruit upon a French chef. Okay, I'm here. Thanks so much. Bye, bye. See you soon. Okay. 2. KNOW THE ABLETON INTERFACE: Today we get to know the Ableton Live interface and understanding how its session works. Is trembling. Barton familiarize yourself with the interface. As at first glance, it can signal Leone to meet A1. But in time, you'll be able to see eats. He has a toolbox for fuses, right? So the sun session, where you can find simple suggested several types, breeds as well. Instruments, more fucose on sex to find variations. There are also facts such as a last string guitar. That's geysers. Of course. The drum section. This is where we find basically the entire drum instruments in the program. They are in me for months in arranging new drum rack. These instruments are pretty Saturday at in midi effects and arrange it at a specific time. The instruments session we can find out similar to the sound part, but they are organized according to the type of sound. All sections have sub-sections where you basically have the same organization as the Sounds tab. Right here, you can find out or effects. These are effects that we added to our files. These effects we can find delays, equalizations, reverb, and a few already facts. We have midi effects to our effects, especially added to midi samples and they modified immediate organization should chairs, scales, toleration, tone, and notes. Write plug-ins section where we add third party applications. These applications can be can be of any type as long as they are in dot PSD format. Okay? Among these plugins, we can find drums, mixing plugin, seen, a few of few others, right? The clip session is a sectional area. We have a samples, organize it in prep for the final loops. So we can find a few effects, the end, several type of variations. Perhaps the most important session of EBITDA, as this is where we find all the samples that are in the program. Some are not organized into drum racks, but it is possible to add the truck cost. And one. Basically everything we do and click on will appear in this region down here. Ideas where we changed the configuration of each track, the configuration of December, of course, in the case of means, we make denotation on the piano row. At the top, we have the tracks that are separated in two, midi and audio. As the name implies, only media algae you can go and meet track chairs like the outer track. All right. Below we have the settings for volume, panorama, preset river monitoring, our Jew output. And among others. Right? Above this section, we have the controls for pulse play. And to record the trauma, of course as well. It's very important to recordings and press the Tab key we change to the arrangement part. And this is where we went tracks to compose the music to be rendered. Now it's time to practice at home. See you next class. Bye bye. 3. Getting to Know the Instruments Section: Now you explore the instruments, session. Instruments, sessions, organize it according to the number and style of each one. Let's start with the analogous session. Here we can see the subcategories that classify the timers. We cannot occur. So we have base, piano, strings, CIF keys, safe leads, and rhythmic. Each of these categories is also presenting our instruments sessions. Let's take a look at each subcategory and understand the characteristics of feet. As you can see, you have several options, right? This instruments are also many files and must be added in the corresponding meet that. Double-click on the clip slack. We can write the notes on the piano. Just like any other meetings from. And we can add special effects. It's just lay flanger reverb compresses and things like that. That is basically right. I hope you enjoyed this class and next, and now it's time for you to practice it at home. All right, So see you next class. Bye. 4. PLUGINS : In today's tutorial, we're going to stand the role of plugins enabled to the vast majority of burglary plugins coming format VST plugins are midi sound similar to what we have here at Ableton. And they simulated digital instrument. By default, it does not come with any plugging at it, but we can do this manually. We will download a free plugin In added to Ableton. So downloading still Serge, it's a great and totally free intertidal. Okay. I recommend that you create a folder to put all the plugins you download. And then able to be automatically add the onStart down on this stuff. The plug-in we already appears in the plugin section. Just drag to a medically on the side and it will open, normally. Double-click on a clip slot for first to write the notes and on the piano. Now, right? You can hear the different chambers of the program. This may sound a little bit complicated, but take some time to join us soon the structure of a VST plugins as the vast majority works the same way. Okay. So recent and became familiar with each one right? Now, is time to practice at home. Okay, see you next lesson. Bye bye. 5. Audio Effects : How do effects are fundamental for mixing and especially for energizing the music should they weren't a stand. Some effects, such are fundamental for our musical production. Will continue to do the algebra Effects section. And there we get two new center. I look at the Session folder in their respective names. Let's go choose delay in the loop, okay, but first we'll drag some drums, medically shrew up blind effects. Remembering for, for, for, for, for us to note the effects. Some notes needs to be created in. Okay, You'll note standard, the only effect creates a kind of echo, right? That makes own instruments repeating. Can you hear? I'm interested in. So let's try our effects. But first, we have the leaf, the delay so that the auditor facts don't overlap. So if we go back to the outer effect session and drag the reverb, Let's go to reverb and resonance folder. And we dragged the reverb folder to our midi clip. Brass play right below. And we can here that we created a kind of phaco, which is very similar today. Ambience atmosphere effect. I like. This effect modifies the time vertice somewhat. So continue browsing through the auditor folders in the outer effects session or Dustin how each one works and its influence on the medically, okay, where everyone, that's basically it. And I hope you enjoyed this lesson. Now. It's time to practice it more, right. 6. Adding distortion : Distortion is a dotted doubt. One of the coolest features we can find inhibitor. It's possible to have an effect very close to L a tree tyrants, to add it starshade, you get closer to do sound very close to rock and roll, right? So first I'm going to add a sound that resembles a guitar or less. Guitar. Each has no distortion previously applying. All right, so let's go to the instrument time in search for cleaning bass guitar. Next, x2 add some simple courts. He is simple courts is, for example, studies done. Let's go to the Effects tab and search for driving color. This folder, we have a lot of interesting effects. Lets you reach one of them. Pretty cool, isn't it? So you can tweak the plugin Santi's to reduce or increase the amount of distortion ctree are preferred. Or if you want, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and see you next lesson. 7. MIDI EFFECTS: Midi effects are effects you use it to streamline midi clips like our effects, midi basically changed the way we write notes. They adding chords, progressions, modified scale gene expression, et cetera. For this tutorial, we are going to use the RBG to effect. I'm going to use one from instrument. Instrument, analogy, piano, key, Oregon percussion section. Okay, we drag to an empty clip, right? So it's important to fall step-by-step true for to find this. The sounds. Then mu write any notes for this tutorial, we use C, E, and G, right? Just for example. One steps done, we'll drag and D are BVA to chew our mid clip. Note that in the window below a small wind appears at the beginning, RPG 80. So let's increase the gate. Damped, the repeat. Note Set. This sound has been prolonged. And now we go back to the media effects session and dragged core to the clip. Zoom in and see the difference, seen the results. It's our core for the nodes that will be played. This VR useful for creating chords down, having to write a complimentary notes, browse this section and add effects to see your result. And remember it should lead the effects. You've already added RAB low so they don't overlap. Now, Stanford. 8. Drum – MIDI and Audio: Now you understand the outer process done in Ableton Live. Major you refers to Musical Instrument Digital Interface you've written has some interface already configured in organizing immediate, for example, in a drum section, we have a vast lists of digital instrument. Organize it in these interface, in the, in these journeys for men that are organized in different styles, right? So let's see a few examples. These instruments can only be using the tabs that are present here beside. Tragic, drag it to the 100 tab, the program you are not allowing. Below, we have the settings refrained should immediate drag it. We can customize the samples at the outer track in, add special effects. The turn can only be drag it to the audio guy. Is our rendered samples. Each are not added to any specific medium. We can create a crystal meeting using drum rack as well. So, so below in the drum rack setting, we can drag simple stupid played. Then we can add by clicking clips lot. And below, we can try this one. 9. EQ and Compressor : Mixing is a very important processing any song, because, because that's where you remove those unwanted frequency and add effects and things like that that are part of the master. And the acquisition process consists of increase and decrease your concerning our frequency, its server to balance the mixing and they're removed instead, my conflict. So let's localize some base. Okay. I'm going to use as subsidy subsiding base as example, right? It's going to be a very nice example. So check this out. This base has mostly low frequency, so let's drag it to the middle clip on a side. Let's add an extended node subroutine here, the frequency variable, okay? Next, we'll need to drag should emit clip. Notice how this graph varies. In also note that the frequency that most predominating is in the sound arbitrary 45 in 200 hertz. We also have some mini frequency, but not high frequencies. So what you do for us is to add a low pass in a high pass right? In the panel below in a row one will change the future modules, the first one. And at number eight, we'll select this box and leave it as it is right on status done flux play here and hear the sound. Here are the frequency. We are between 45 and 400 hertz, which is drag. This varies. Okay? So what we have done is basically leave the frequent step really matters to our sound in doubt. Remove the quality or modify the timer. Okay, so now let's apply the compression to the bass and we'll look at the outer effects by compressor. The compressor prevents the volume for exceeding a value. When this happens, it reduced the font so that the sound is level. That's drag it to our base. Squeeze space to lists. And notes that the sand is pretty evenly. By dyadic some compressor, we prefer that Salford board over bar for some reason, okay. Removes the Rachel Chu four points. Hi Laura. That lines you about below the graph. Does a very nice isn't it? Now, it's time to practice at home, right? So see you next class. Bye bye. 10. Samples: Samples are piece of audio that we can usually work with mucin production. Many of you heard of such music has a same port of certain artists. This is very common in the production where as the vast majority of producers use samples of order songs on their own. Okay, ITO has Sara semster we can use to produce our songs. We navigate to the simple sections, gray. So we have a numerous styles, Steinberg's, different durations, things like that, right? So leasing to week 1. And basically on a sin how the work in Wadi particularities, a feature or options and they are very different. Remembering that we can use samples downloaded from the internet as well in MTO is able to cut in rearrangement up losing quality. It's very important to use symbols in WAV format as it is guaranteed that there is at least possible, the least possible loss of quality in this format. So browse through the central session in clique and nice and chew each one and drag to the track bars on a site and find each one. You like the most. 11. TYPES OF SAMPLES : In music production, we have some terms using universally. These terms make it much easier for us to produce our music. In the story of who you are, understand the concept of click, clap, snare, close, hi-hat, open, hi-hat, base, bad scenes, lead synth, brass, percussion, N key. Those are the names that basically all music production program work. Okay, so each name you represents a category of sample whose number is particular. Let's go to the simple section of able to type in the search dab the name kick. The result shows the front kicks types, but realize that there is a common future. Can achy on each one and heard that in addiction should use, she, her men of you can then find some use. Similar sound. It's because basically in almost all song specially trunk, the Keq is prison. Incentives are very similar samples. First, we'll search for clap. Listen to average sound and we get as result. Note that the characteristics of a clap is Mark, Strand and Don will meet you in high frequency. And that is also has a very short duration, but we find impact. If you search now for scenario, you notice that they both have similar characteristics. Listen and know the dawn of each one. Alright. I hats are dividing the CEU types, close it in open. So the closer ones have a very short duration, K. So in a high, in a, packed in frequencies, the open ones are hi-hat that less longer have high drew notes. They are widely used in treadmills, can electronic. We will then navigate to the instrument section. Let's get to know maize, bad things, brass, percussion, key, array. So base has the name implies is a base. There are necessarily sounds that navigates lowest frequency. Okay? So desire the most case, the base, the base of the song and helps you complete this song. General cycling. So like the other samples, they have unique timbres of different styles. All right, so it's important to find your favorite bass sounds. Bets are tumors, furious sounds that can bring all frequencies of the spectrum. They are user basically use it, adds a lower volume in order to also complete the sound and add atmosphere that connects all the instruments together. It seems can also add some characteristic is off bad. However, there's sounds are left hemispheres and have a great attack. These, for example, are stronger and normal size. Ours mover and able to weekend see that there are numerous type of each one is worth to listen. Okay, so important. My favorite brands is very close to the weaning instrument. They have a certain distortion in its atmosphere, have tons that are very easy to distinguish, to be distinguished from other types of samples. So then can be using similar purpose two beds in S3 and have a great influence on the music. Let's talk about persecution. They have characteristics of drums, read those triangles in it, et cetera. Digital have unique characters, okay, So they usually completed drums and search. You energize the music. And finally, we have the keys. Who's our keyboard instruments like piano, electronic keyboard, and let's rank beyond. They are, use it basically in almost all styles of music. And server two added the complimentary, complimentary instrument, should a music. Well everyone, I hope you enjoy this class. Remember that it's extremely important to listen to eat simple and understand its particularity. See you next lesson. Bye bye. 12. ADDING SAMPLES TO DRUM RACK : Now we are going to learn how to create a drum rack with samples we have in Ableton. It's quite simple for that. We go to the drum section and drag the mid drum session should they meet track next to it. We can see that bad is greater right below. This is where we drag our samples. Then we go down to the side, to the simple section array. We have a numerous samples of different styles. But for this tutorial, we are going to use the base of the drums, drum set. We drag a kick. I had a collapse in a scenario where we can go down to the burrow, but we can also use the search gij, be more should appoint. Okay, So let's type the name, kick into the Search tab. We have tons of tons for a cake. You can add the Kikee one, right? But for this tutorial, I'm going to add cake analogy one. You can add any kind of click. Okay? Drag. It doesn't make any difference. Let's do the same thing for the drum instruments. Let's start now for Rye, I had in the works in air, drag each one to the drum rack. Okay. So let's use this hi-hat open 9, 0, 9. Now we do the same thing for snare, Kate, I'm going to add as many as 90, nine don't for a similar style. So we do the same thing for clap as well. I'll use a cloud 909. In the future. You will memorize are the step-by-step. Okay, don't worry about that student's theory to practice. Now, just double-click on our drum rack clips lot. Anyway, we'll be able to ride and nodes and those, that move below. So let's write a look right here at class has true. Okay. The main of you have heard this drum route. Hope you enjoy it and see you next class. 13. Sampling a song : Simply is nothing more than using a piece of music. It's a resource often using electronic emails can trap. Many people also use samples of other songs in remixes. Let's learn how to sample a piece of meals can add something you choose simple sum, we need to drag it to an audio clip. It will load in our window below you appear. If we repress play, the music would be faster or slower. That's because the beats per meals per minute, by default is at a 120 VPM. Since we'll sample piece of music Jews, there is no reason to change the BPM, right? To sue the time of the music. I enjoy this, this part of the sun a lot. Right? So the autoclave it and drag to the arrangement to Ray status done, we'll click on the outer track is selected. We want to use of the sun. Important shortcut is to keep the correct time of the song by creating marketing used. Remember we turn on the metronome. It serves to add the sample with the correct time. We'll just create a March in, drag it. And you have to basically do that then to load of the song fits with the metronome. Sounds confusing, but it's pretty steep. So now I'm going to select this region where my symbol starts. Right-click in select split. At the end, we do the same thing, but with the n of the sample. We just have the loop option. So it can extend the duration of the sample. It, the outgoing ray. Spice it up. I'm going to add a drums, drums steps, insertion or select. Let's suppose. It looks very nice, isn't it? So now let's play it all together and see how it looks. Each array to see you bye-bye. 14. Basics of electronic music : There is no recipe for producing a song, but there are some patterns. Dan Chu seen some styles should that you're going to learn that base. So filament electronic music. To create an electronic music for drums, really need a kick, close it and open hi-hat scenario and a clap array. So another varying part element is the base, which will be the foundation of our music. And finally, a sanction, the bad remembered that there's not a ruler, but they are very common elements, symbols of electronic music. First of all, we'll drag him meet drum kit 909 should immediately be signer a. If it is done, let's write a sequence that will compose our drums. Now, let's go to the base release to Tara, we use these analog write. This sounds very nice and you drag, read the notes. So let's Buddha see the nodes. In B note. We already have the foundation of our music. You're now back in to see thin beds. It's important to point out that I'm Ryan, a garden scene leisure. So we've followed the same base notes of our music. Alright, so let's drag this one and then another one. This one right here. Yes. Sounds nice. Okay. So remember, C major is C, D, E, F, G, a, and b. Now we have denotes the arrangement section. Here we go. This way. Now just press play in, hear how it sounds. Now, it's on your ISO. Perhaps a lot important to practice at home. 15. Fundamentals of hiphop music : Hip hop is one of the most listening styles in the world. Should they will learn some basics of hip hop music? Remember that there is no recipe for producing music, but there are many elements that you can certainly be learned. I start with the drums, kick, snare in high hat and are very present in hip hop music. So that's right, I drone set in this style. For this tutorial, I'm going to use this treat mine kit. You can search for it in the drums that let's drag it, should say in below your organize the samples. Okay. You can find a best central Genesis surge research. Though. Now, let's set a really strong base. We move onto instrument and let's search for a base, base, metal base. Below, we write the notes re, create a melody following key array. For grand piano. Once that is done through the arrangement sector in the musical arrangement. As you can see, it important to use your creativity techniques. So just press, play and listen. Are arranged with just this volume right? Now isn't much bad. Very nice, isn't it? Now, it's time to practice at home. See you next lesson. Bye bye. 16. How to keep music always in tune : Whenever we started music production, it's important to define the tone that we were working on a music. So we can assemble chords and be always coherence in relation to the notes we will use. A burrito has very interesting feature that helps a lot when producing. Let's go. So first, let drag a piano and shoot a MATLAB. For this tutorial, we'll use a grand piano. Good your instruments, instruments, rack, p and n keys, grand piano. No studies window appear down here. Disease, where you added the necessary settings. Click on the scale in select E major. Note that on the side, the piano keys lit up. These leaky isn't a key region. Nodes are part of E major scale. If we change the scale, we have different variations. Now, we can create a chord that is within the E major scale. It's important to do this for all instruments to be using, so we will always be in tune with the music. So I hope you enjoyed this video and see you next time. Bye-bye. 17. How to use automation : Automation is a feature we can find in most music production programs. Unable to us nine different from has very easy and very fast way to use out. Okay, so first, let's add an effect to any drum set. It is in effect that automation. So I'm going to select and drag the cash on kid. And now it's time to write a very simple sequence. So going to be very sick firm, not true creativity today. Now, let's go to our effects. In search for delay. We will open this folder is first folder and drag this delay to the trucks. Okay? Hold the middle equilibrium, the drum and clicking tab. We'll drag it to the arrangement section. Let's Spend. It. Looks nice, isn't it? So to add automation will click on drums clip. During the delay window on is dry and wet level. We right-click and select Show Automation. If we look at the arrangement sec section, a red arrow up here. And so this arrow indicates the values that will be moving as the music plays. Let's mess with this and fix the result. Note that the delay enters progressively in the dry wet values, increasing their car to the line. That's automation and streaming use of a future that make Minsky more interesting array. So it's impossible to add automation, pretty much everything, right? So I hope you enjoyed the shortcuts and see you next class. Bye bye. 18. Mixing Kick and Bass : Mapreduces in that running into a problem between 600k and base. This probably is about if frequence both work on no frequence there for in a mixing general day and that boosting the base frequency and consequently waiting in dirt in the mix. So they will learn how to fix this problem. Okay? So we're going to use a really strong base survey instruments for sine Bayes to great base. And then we are going to add a drum rack. In this tutorial, we use the Cash home kit. First, we will write an extended node for the base in four beats for the kick. First, we are going to recognize the tune instruments to make sure that frequency are not conflicting. Chuy met. I say so much because it's not always possible to cut DNA effectively. What we need to do now is true at a site change the base n. For this, we'll click on this little arrow here. Mere checklists such an option. Below. We'll check this arrow right here and select up Schadt side chain below. We'll select cake machine for pre effects. Now, we need to move this line down and increase the gain a little bit so that the side chain effect is strong. Bases mix it. The best, breed, conflict. It's nice, isn't it? So I hope you enjoy these tips. And now is time to practice. Practice a lot a half. Okay. So see you next class. Bye bye. 19. SideChain Tutorial : Side chain is very useful resource in electronic music, either to ensure a cleaner mix or at a special effects to the music. In ableton has a very easy wage run a side chain. First, let's drag a few things around. First, a drum rack, then a pad, and a compressor that will be applied to the bad. We're going to use the drone cash and carry it for this tutorial. The PET CT in for the compressor, go to our effects dynamics compressor tan, and you drag it over the mid clip, where are bad we will be when you go down to kick machine for him, right? That when we do the same thing with pad. Now let's go to the compressor window. Let's click on this little arrow next to the name and then check the side chain option. Bargain. We'll select cash HomeKit and that option, both effects. So let's look up the name kick machine for effects. That's it. Now we are going to change the rate of values up to about 4.1 here. And we're gonna go into move that line down, right? Reducing the volume as the sun place. Everyone. That's basically it. I hope you enjoyed this class in nanostructure practice a lot, right? See you next lesson. 20. Setting up an Arrangement in the Arrangement Sector : Now you're learning how to build your arrangement, the arrangement SAG, actor session, all right, For that, we need to drag clips lot. So let's quickly go to the drum rack session and drag in some drum sound. Then we hold a mouse, drag the clip, and press the Tab key. Note set a window opens immediately. Just dragged the tab corresponding should eclipse lot array, in this case, mini 1 a. So we have a clipping side arrangement. We end up here. We can change the duration of the clip. We can add automation. But for this tutorial, you choose to make the duration array. You can see that when we drag it to the side, it completes itself like a loop. This loop is a sound that will complete itself without having any pulse or, and think that breaks the continuity. We can also add another meet by doing the same drag-and-drop process for its corresponding mean. Okay, so let's add a base. Let's go to the instruments session. In there we will drag a base two MPT medical aid. Okay? So we use a sub pure muted base from the analogous session. Let's double-click on the clip slot, human rights, some simple notes. So let's use a, C, a, G, and B. Once we have done these, we hold the clip. We just created and press tab and drag it to the arrangement and we end up we'll put it on a tracker responding to me to now to increase the duration, drag to the variety, and that's it. Whereas in here, perhaps you on here, we can occur the two tracks plane together. 21. Creating a song from scratch: Today we are going to learn how to produce a song from scratch. Pissarro. Let's define a scale in which we work the courts. In this chart, I'm giving shoes a minor purse. I'm going to create a sequence notes using a notepad. Just search for it in the nice ferment the apps, Alright. You can find easily. So a minor is a, B, C, D, E, F, G, delta, and sharper flat. Okay, so let's write the following notes. But first, Let's increase the loop duration to four bars. So I'm going to write our sequence is going to be a nodes. So let's see in the duration of the node B, F. Next we will add base with the same notes. Just select everything with Control plus a. In the bass, we uses this SA, sub complex base. Now I have a good foundation for hours our music. So let's add the drums. Search for trashcan, keep in the drum stamp when you add it from the outside. So Tammy track is created. Now let's assemble the sequence. Having created our sequence here, it's important to apply a site change the base, so, so don't mess up our sun, right? So we go to our effects that you can search for a compressor k. Now we drag down. Okay, so let me see here. Let's click on that little arrow. And unable and any enable, enable, sorry. Side chain right below, we choose machine for pre effects for a key. For the Q-Q to be responsible for belied a side chain effects. Now we just reduced the lines on the side to get the desired effects. So let's add one more element to our sequence. I'm going to add it seems. Okay. Now let's assemble the node sequence for these instruments. As you can see, it's important to use our creativity and our techniques knowledge shortcuts. I teach you during this course. Now, let's assemble the arrangement with the loops we create these, we hold it with the left mouse button and press Tab key. So I was ready and now just press play in here their results. Creativity in all the knowledge, and create your own music and arrangements, right? So thank you so much. See you. Bye-bye. 22.
