About This Class

Take 3 audio clips and warp them so that they play at the same speed. This project is perfect for learning how to create a steady tempo in music you create, produce, or remix.

Ableton Live 9 is uniquely powerful audio software, equally strong in helping you create, produce, and perform music. Now you can learn your way around Ableton Live 9 with audio engineer, musician, and producer Brian Jackson’s straightforward, 65-minute introduction. Brian quickly familiarizes you with the interface, settings, and browsers; demonstrates the difference between audio clips, tracks, and scenes; and culminates with a 15-minute fascinating introduction to warping—matching the tempos of different audio tracks. Whether you’re a producer, musician, sound designer, or just interested in working with audio, this is a perfect way to get started with the software everyone’s been talking about.
