Producertech announces Live Beginner-Intermediate & Advanced Level Weekends

Producertech Live weekends

Producertech has announced the first of many live teaching events, starting in November with 2 Ableton Live weekends by certified trainer Rob Jones.

These weekends, one for Beginners and one for Advanced level users, include 2 full days of training on Ableton software and music production in general, as well as instruction on Ableton’s control surface Push, free online courses and £100 worth of samples from Loopmasters.

Located in Producertech’s new UK headquarters, the Echoplex Studio complex in Eastbourne, these events allow students the opportunity to interact directly with certified trainer and online course creator Rob Jones, while he teaches the ins and outs of Live in detail to a class of no more than 16 people. Throughout the day, there will be exercises set, which students can carry out on the provided workstations or their own laptops, along with in-depth group and one-to-one mentoring to maximize students’ experiences and learning.

The first weekend, for beginner-intermediate level users will cover all of the basics of producing with Live, right from the very start. Each area will be explained comprehensively and some more complex aspects like envelopes and modulation will be introduced, so both someone starting out and those with a little experience already are suitable attendees. The second weekend then goes deeper into mixing and sound design, looking at more technical aspects of producing and performing, to take a student’s skills to the next level, and is suitable for someone who has been using Live for some time and has a reasonable grasp on this amazing software.

Ableton’s control surface Push will also be shown, so that students can see a first-hand demonstration and have an improved understanding of how it works. There will also be some demonstrations of recent hardware releases from Producertech’s sponsors Focusrite, Novation and KRK.

Every attendee will be given an online course from Producertech – the level 1 (Beginners) course for attendees of the first weekend and the level 2 (Advanced) course for the second weekend. These courses, worth £150, mean that students can continue studying online for as long as they need after the event. Any students who are already signed up to these courses will be allowed access to other Producertech courses, such as Paul Maddox’s Tech House and Techno course, up to the same value, free of charge. Furthermore, Loopmasters are kindly supplying all students with a voucher for £100 worth of sample packs of your choosing, from their enormous library of high quality samples!

Live Beginner-Intermediate & Advanced Level Weekends

  • 2 full days of software/production training with a certified trainer.
  • Instruction on Ableton’s Push control surface.
  • Free access to Live-Courses.com online level 1 or 2 course (worth £150).
  • £100 voucher for Loopmasters samples supplied to every attendee.
  • Evening’s entertainment of Live DJs and Performers.
  • Additional demos of recent Focusrite/Novation hardware releases.

You can sign up by emailing rob@producertech.com, to reserve one of only 16 places.

Producertech is offering rekkerd.org readers a 20% discount on all courses at Live-Courses.com, Logic-Courses.com and Reasoncourses.com. Use coupon code REK20 at checkout to take advantage of this offer.

Power Tools for Ableton Live 9

Hal Leonard Books has announced Power Tools for Ableton Live 9, a book by Ableton certified trainer Jake Perrine.

Ableton Live 9 is a groundbreaking music production and performance application whose uniquely nonlinear and incredibly flexible features set it far apart from all the other digital audio applications. It is equally adept at making beats, remixing, live recording, DJing, live looping, sound design, electronic music, hip-hop, and much more.

Unlike other books about Live that simply explain its features like a second manual, this hands-on-centric book contains a series of exercises that walk you through all the features you need to produce professional-sounding music with Ableton Live 9. As a fundamental instructional component to Power Tools for Ableton Live 9, certified Ableton instructor Jake Perrine guides you through the creation of an actual track from start to finish. In addition, you get plenty of practice using Live with the included audio content, video tutorials, exercises, audio samples, and third-party plug-in demos contained on the accompanying DVD-ROM.

A substantial appendix section offers discussions of important non-Ableton-specific topics, including digital audio basics, components of a producer’s studio, considerations when buying a DAW computer, and more.

The book and DVD-rom is available to purchase for $39.99 USD.
