There's an old audio saying: Garbage in, garbage out. Trash is cool, but sometimes you want that pristine, clean, pure and undistorted audio. This course, by the irrepressible sound artist Bill Burgess, explains the process of how audio is best recorded, resampled and effected in Ableton Live.
Bill Burgess is the former Pro Audio Product Marketing Manager and Logic Pro Artist Relations Manager for Apple Inc. He's also a brilliant software educator with long experience teaching audio producers how to make music!
Solid tracks begin with solid audio. Solid audio begins with solid audio capture techniques. This course takes you on the Ableton Live epic audio journey where you learn everything there is to know about getting solid audio results when you work in Live.
You start with the fundamentals. Sample rate, latency, bit depth and gain staging. These are the essential ingredients of well-recorded audio. From there, Bill dives right into recording. You learn to record single and multiple tracks. Then Bill shows you punching and loop recording techniques that he has perfected as a longtime user of Live.
Next up is a collection of tutorials that dive even deeper into the recording process. Bill shares his advanced techniques of rerecording and resampling audio, MIDI and device chains to create your own library of power-user clips. This course concludes with some "don't miss" audio effect tools that'll take your tracks to a whole new level.
It's time to kick back and learn how to make your audio cut through the clutter with these deep tips straight from the creative mind of Bill Burgess.
Great course on many levels. Bill is as entertaining as he is informative. This course is a special one and I love the intersection with the visual arts that Bill brings out in it. More please!!

This tutorial needs to not assume that the listener already knows how to set up your project the same way you did. Please allow time for the trainer to explain how they set up the project before diving into it. I felt I was lost.
