Digital Lab: Songwriting & Digital Performance

Learn digital DJing and Live Performance with Ableton!

In this Introductory course students will learn the basics of how to transform their computer into a live performance powerhouse using Ableton Live. We will explore DJ techniques, audio interfaces, cueing, crossfaders, warping tracks for beat matching, effects, and DJ set templates and arrangement in Ableton. Students will also be given a solid overview of MIDI controllers and custom MIDI mapping techniques for enhanced live performance. This is a great introduction into digital music performance and DJing.
