We've teamed up with acclaimed Certified Ableton Trainer Isaac Cotec to create the "ultimate" 3-part Ableton Live course that walks you through all the concepts that you'll need to master it. This is part 3 of the course, great if you're at an intermediate-level, already familiar with the basics of the program - navigating it, the browser, session & arrangement views, Warp modes etc. (you can click here for part 1 and part 2 of the course)

In this part of the course, Isaac goes over the more advanced features of Ableton Live such as editing, moving from session & arrangement views and take control of our editing, dealing with automation, adding audio effects, and remixing.

This is a great course for somebody who knows the basics and wants to start printing out their songs - render out your final track that you're sending out to master for example, or you're writing an album - this is the course for you! Using a mix of "live video", presentations and screen shots, Isaac makes it really easy to follow everything he's doing.

INCLUDED are tons of exercises and course downloads - check them out on the "Downloads" tab above.

Good luck with the course and if you have questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with Isaac directly using our tutoring feature on this page!
