Soul Clap @ Dubspot Video Recap: Ableton Live Collaborative Workshop

In this video, Soul Clap dropped by Dubspot NYC to share some music production knowledge and demonstrate their collaborative workflow with Ableton Live. 

In this video, the electronic music production duo of Charles Levine and Eli Goldstein, better known as Soul Clap dropped by Dubspot NYC to demonstrate their collaborative workflow with Ableton Live. The workshop started with a discussion about Soul Clap’s history and philosophies about production and DJing. While creating a new composition, a group of Dubspot students synced M-Audio Axiom 25 MIDI controllers and worked with Soul Clap to record various musical elements in a live performance/jam session. See how it all comes together!


Ableton Live Producer Certificate Program

About This Program

At Dubspot our world-class instructors provide the most complete and cutting-edge Ableton Live learning experience. The Ableton Live Producer Certificate Program is the flagship of our music training. After completing this program, you will leave with a portfolio of original tracks, a remix entered in an active contest, a scored commercial to widen your scope, and the Dubspot Producer’s Certificate in Ableton Live.

This program is about learning Ableton Live by going through the entire process of being an artist, by developing your own sound through a series of sketches and experimentation. You will also learn the ins and outs of this powerful software through a series of exercises designed to help you master the steps involved in producing your own music. After a level of getting familiar with the tools that Ableton has to offer, you will then develop your sonic ideas into full-length tracks. You will be exposed to a variety of approaches to arrangement and composition, storytelling techniques, ways of creating tension and drama in your music. At the end of the day, it is the sum total of your choices as an artist that define your sound, and levels 2 – 6 will give you the experience of actually completing tracks to add to your portfolio.

Thanks for all the great info you guys are putting out! I did remix of the Soul Clap session. It is posted on my Sound Cloud ( . I used Thavius’s tips on follow actions for the first time in constructing the bass lines and the glitched percussion part. All the parts in the tune were taken from the session except for the 909 beats and some pad stuff in the middle. Cheers
