Ableton Live 9 Jumpstart FAQs

What skill level is this course?

Beginner. You do not need any previous experience in Live 9 to take this course.  At the same time, if you’ve been poking around in Live for some time, this course will fill in all the gaps in your understanding of how to use the program.

What software do I need?

This course is based on Ableton Live Standard, although you can do just as well with Live Suite and nearly as well with Live Intro. While no third-party plugins are required to complete this course, I do use a donation-ware plugin called TAL Elek7ro-II which I explain how to download and use.

Important: To get the best website experience, we highly recommend you use the most updated version of Google’s free Chrome browser. This functions best with our streaming video players. https://google.com/chrome

What version of Live do I need to use the course?

The course is designed to teach you how to use Live 9, but I’ve included exercise Sets for Live 8 as well, so if you haven’t upgraded yet, you can still do 90% of this course. Obviously, the new features in Live 9 will not work in Live 8, so you will have to skip those parts.

What if I don’t have Live?

A demo of Live is available at Ableton.com, though be sure and wait until the course begins if you go this route as it will expire after 30 days.

Is this course applicable to my genre?

In a word – yes. This course is designed to demonstrate how to use the Live program, and that is applicable to any and all genres of music making. While the song that is created during the course is electronic in nature, the functionality of the program is equally pertinent for working in any genre of music production.

What if I don’t like the course?

We want you to be as excited about your course as we are. If for any reason you’re not 100% happy with it, we offer a no-hassle, no-BS, super easy 60 day satisfaction guarantee. Any time within the first 60 days after purchase we will refund your money.

How long can I access this course and the videos?

You have lifetime access to this course.

Can I download the videos?

No we don’t offer downloading of the videos. The videos are available as on-demand streaming HD players that you can access from a computer or virtually any mobile device.

Are there any system requirements?

Yes, a broadband internet connection and computer are required. Minimum requirements are obviously the ability to run Ableton Live, so any computer with Mac OS 10.5 & Windows XP or newer should do just fine.

  1. 5 out of 5

    :

    An excellent course that really opened my eyes over what I knew from “fiddling” with my new Ableton Live 9 Standard, as well as my opportunities to create something with my new MIDI controller/keyboard. The course is well laid out, easy to follow, and the ability to pause the video to try things or to skip back and play it over (and over, sometimes) to fully understand the topic was very useful. I did find that there were a couple of things that were specifically mentioned or done in the video which my Ableton did not seem to have right up front in the same menu or location, but again the pausing allowed me to go looking (and learning) and configure it as the lesson required.
    I’m very happy with the course as it allowed me to learn the basics quickly and easily, and I went on after the lesson to create my first piece with clips and MIDI for my wife’s workout playlist. The course is definitely worth the money, to quickly get going in the right direction!
