Electronic Music Live Performance with Ableton Live (Launchpads)

Electronic Music Live Performance with Ableton Live (Launchpads)

if you wonder what it would be like to play electronic music hands on instead of programming it, this course will teach you the basics of using pad controllers (like the Novation Launchpad, Akai APC, or Ableton Push) to express yourself. You will learn how to do finger drumming (playing beats), improvise on pads, and launch clips and loops.

Basic

Students will be introduced to a more free-flowing, improvisational approach to electronic music, integrating pad controllers such as the Novation Launchpad or the Akai APC, Ableton, MIDI control and other hardware.

Our interactive advanced course provides a more tailored approach to live performances, by addressing specific questions from students. A particular focus will be placed on the smooth integration of modern MIDI technology with the Ableton DAW, whilst also covering more advanced audio effects, sampling and live performance techniques.
