Ableton. What is it and what's the buzz all about? Ever heard of a Digital Audio Workstation or DAW? Ableton is not just any DAW, it is the favourite music creation tool of many artists, producers, DJs and beat-makers. And also an ideal digital recording studio!

But an endless source of possibilities can also be quite overwhelming ... Enter this crash course: for songwriters, producers and (hobby) artists-to-be, or for anyone who dares to pronounce the words 'laptop' and 'music' in one sentence. This course will cover all the basic concepts and explain in detail the general principles of Ableton. From there you will be set to your first discoveries in the crazy world of digital audio.

After this day, you will open your laptop and be guaranteed to be lost in an ethereal cloud of music for hours. Get rid of Garageband , and get to work with the most complete music program on earth. As a bonus, your own musical ideas get a turbo boost!


Bring your laptop and a version of Ableton (Intro/Standard/Suite - you can also use the free 90-day demo) + headphones. Do you have an audio interface, midi controller or keyboard? Feel free to bring those! (this is not a requirement). An external mouse may also come in handy to work smoothly.
