This is really good course that covers almost all the instruments and their parameters in Live.
I've been using Live for a while now and there were a couple of instruments I had never looked into.
The ones that aren't covered in this course are covered in Olav's other courses in great detail.
Recommended watching for all Live users!

This Ableton Instruments review tutorial is exactly what I needed as someone who just started using Live 9 and Push in the last couple weeks. Would recommend this streamlined class to anyone who doesn't have years of synthesizer experience or sound design experience.

A good rundown of the instruments... I was excited to see Olav was teaching this course. He is very knowledgeable and no b.s. like if he doesn't like something he'll just say it. So when he says this or that is a great feature... it really is. He's clear and concise when he describes what he's doing. And he makes some funny comment every once in a while so you don't fall asleep!

Very good course. All the parameters where explained very well. Althought the course might have little bit longer...

Very nice overview of the Ableton Suite instruments. Gets right to the point of clearly explaining what's happening in each one.

The instructor speaks very clearly and slow enough to understand. I also like the circle around the pointer so that I know exactly what he is clicking and where he is on the screen.

Great course for getting familiar with the tools of this software. It clearly show you the power of the built in tools that can easily get users new to music production and audio engineering started in the right direction.
