Ableton Live 9: Level 4 Class 4
Looping Complex Samples and Granular Synthesis

This is an excerpt from our recently updated Dubspot Ableton Live course. This is a teaser to give you an idea of some of the concepts and techniques that you will be learning in our full Ableton Live music production course. This specific lesson comes from Level 4, as we dive pretty deep into Live’s Sampler for original sound and patch creation. – Chris Petti 

You can also catch the first episode of UnFiltered featuring 13-year old producer Devon Karpf receiving some creative criticism on his Ableton Live project by his online instructor Thavius Beck right here.


Ableton Live Producer Certificate Program

The flagship of our music training, with every Ableton Live course offered at the school. 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.

What’s Included:

  • Ableton Live Level 1: Beats, Sketches, and Ideas
  • Ableton Live Level 2: Analyze, Deconstruct, Recompose, and Assemble
  • Ableton Live Level 3: Synthesis and Original Sound Creation
  • Ableton Live Level 4: Advanced Sound Creation
  • Ableton Live Level 5: Advanced Effect Processing
  • Ableton Live Level 6: Going Global with your Music

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.
