Your Ableton Live Studioby Chris Buono
Synopses & Reviews
YOUR ABLETON LIVE STUDIO will show you step-by-step how to use Ableton Live as the central component of your home-based audio-production studio. What's more, YOUR ABLETON LIVE STUDIO will help you create a mobile-based studio so you can take your music to the people. You'll discover what you need to do and buy to create your Ableton Live studio in both scenarios. Once you have your studio's computer in place, you've chosen the version of Live you want, and you've decided which audio interface will do your bidding, it's time to fill in the rest of the essential hardware. You'll look deeply into what kind of speakers you'll use to listen to your productions as well as what headphones you should have. You'll also learn about microphones, MIDI controllers, and the many little things that play a huge role such as cables, adapters, and much more. After your physical studio is set up, this book teaches you how to use Ableton Live to make and record music. Everything is covered, including Live's interface from top to bottom, MIDI, assembling and launching clips, audio manipulation, editing, and mixing, Live's built-in devices, automation, creating arrangements, exporting your production, ReWire, Max for Live, and much, much more. You'll even learn to set up a mobile studio and how to optimize Live and your computer for live performance.
Your Ableton Live Studio gives you the information you need to set up your own home or project studio using Ableton Live as your digital audio workstation (DAW). You'll learn how to decide which system is best for you and learn to install, set up, and use Ableton Live software with your Mac or PC. Your Ableton Live Studio will help you decide what kind of studio you need, where to put it, how to make it sound better, and how to furnish it with the right gear. You'll also learn to record, mix, use plug-ins, edit audio, hook up external MIDI devices, and record or edit MIDI in Ableton Live. The book also focuses on how Live is different from many other DAWs, and how it can be physically "played" in both a studio and live environment. Your Ableton Live Studio is a thorough, practical, yet compact introduction to the complex world of professional audio. It's just what you need to get started today, whether you plan to pursue music as a hobby or as a profession.
