Never has there been music production software that so closely emulates the human mind and the demand for delivering music through a computer than Live. With an imaginative design and a forward-thinking mission, Ableton continues their legacy with Live 9, a software package that drives music production to the cutting edge while squarely meeting the needs of the composer, producer, perform, songwriter, DJ, and beyond. With such a progressive approach to its development, some of you may feel a bit disoriented or even intimidated at first sight of Live’s unconventional design, especially those of you coming from a traditional Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) background. If you are new to DAWs, DJ style programs, or software music production in general, then you’ll soon be right at home with the "parallel concept" of Live’s Session and Arrangement Views. For the rest of you, you’ll have to rethink your approach to composing, arranging and producing music just a bit; but it will be a worthwhile adjustment. That is why this book has been written: to help reinvent the experienced software-based music producer and to unleash the new user. The goal here is to build and cultivate a strong understanding of Live 9’s concepts and to provide material that will engage all DAW users alike. With this goal in mind, at the end of each reading you should feel that your current skills and knowledge base have been elevated to the next level. For the current Ableton Love user – yes, you - there is plenty here to unlock! After all, there is still a little "new user" inside us all. Now it is time to learn how to Create, Produce and Perform with Live 9 – all you have to do is decide what your needs are, because it’s all here. First published in 2013. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.

(Power Tools). 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. 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.

Interactive Composition empowers readers with all of the practical skills and insights they need to compose and perform electronic popular music in a variety of popular styles. The book begins by introducing all of the tools involved in creating interactive compositions through the software Ableton Live and Max for Live. The following chapters then put the tools to use by both describing particular musical styles and also teaching readers how to compose and perform within these styles using the software. As readers progresses through the book, they will learn to use the software to facilitate their own unique compositional objectives. This book takes readers through all of the steps in designing interactive music compositions. It is geared toward both beginners as well as intermediate and advanced readers, and so readers with even little experience working with digital audio software will quickly learn how to design powerful systems that facilitate their unique compositional ideas. A particular feature of this book is that it discusses the historical context of several electronic music styles used by DJs, electronic musicians, and other artists, and then describes, using software, the technical process used in the composition and performance of these styles. Each chapter leads readers to create an original composition in a given style and also discusses the techniques that can be used to perform the piece in an idiomatic fashion.

Music Theory for Electronic Music Producers

The Producers Guide to Harmony, Chord Progressions, and Song Structure in the MIDI Grid.

The producer's guide to harmony, chord progressions, and song structure in the MIDI grid. As an online class, Dr. Allen has had over 50,000 students use this ground-breaking curriculum to learn music theory. Students and Producers who have wanted to learn music theory to improve their own music, but have been intimidated by traditional approaches, music notation, and abstract concepts will find this book to be the answer they have been looking for. From the Author: "How music theory is usually taught is unfair. It starts with the assumption that you can read music and understand the language of classical music. My book leaves all of that behind - focusing only on the MIDI grid that producers are already familiar with to learn all the key concepts of music theory, and ultimately, make better music." This book covers all the fundamentals of music theory, but is written using the language of the DJ and Producer - the MIDI Grid. It includes "analysis" projects that look at the harmonic and melodic ideas in songs by popular producers including Zedd, Boards of Canada, Daft Punk, Deadmau5, Bonobo, Richie Hawtin, Moby, Skrillex, and Aphex Twin. Praise for Music Theory for Electronic Music Producers: "Aspiring electronic musicians have choices to make when it concerns their own education and training. This text makes one choice much easier: start here and get learning, quickly. Grounded and easygoing, the book uses real-world examples to help you make sense of music's inner worksings while steering clear of dense theories." - Michael J. Ethen, PhD Musicologist "This book knocks the oftentimes alienating world of music theory completely onto it's side. Difficult to explain concepts are perfectly demonstrated for the aspiring electronic music producer who might have no formal music training. A must have for all aspiring producers." - James Patrick (DJ, Producer, Educator) Slam Academy, Dubspot, IPR, Ableton Certified Trainer "With Music Theory for Electronic Music Producers, Dr. Allen has produced a remarkable resource: an extensive tour of musical theory that leverages some of our favorite modern tools - the virtual studio and it's piano roll note display. By introducing us to the "why" as well as the "what" of music theory, this book helps us to understand what makes music tick and how to improve our own work. In addition to offering a sound theoretical foundation, the deep dives into analyzing tracks by Skrillex, Aphex Twin, and Deadmau5 keeps our attention focused on real-world production. MTEMP will definitely go on the top of my recommendation list for anyone that needs a fresh view of musical concepts." - Darwin Grosse Director of Education, Cycling '74
