I'm Ableton-certified trainer Isaac Cotec. In this course, I'll share tons of tips, resources and information around fast songwriting... How you can make the sounds in your head come out into the software and create the music that you've been wanting.
We'll go over tons of the different tools in Ableton Live to speed up songwriting. We'll start with creating a concept around your music using images and videos to really inspire you in the ceation. Then we'll look at pre-production, making templates, tools, and presets that will speed up the process when we sit down and start creating music. We'll also look at making sketches rom scratch and how we can expand those out into full compositions and arrangements that change over time and have a story that they're trying to tell.
I'll also share tricks, tips and techniques that I've learned over the years to keep me producing and in the flow, moving beyond writer's block and staying creative in the studio. At the end of this couse you're going to have the tools, ideas and concepts to help push your music in the studio and create the music that's in your hear and get it out as quickly and as easily as possible.
