If you always thought you'd be, like, really good at making music as a producer or maybe even a DJ, you've probably wished you knew the ins and outs of Ableton software—and that you had the time to learn them. Well, lo and behold, here you are with all the quarantime in the world and a chance to check out this 6-part online Ableton Live 10 training.
Led by certified Ableton instructor J. Allen, these top-rated classes (none come in under 4.5 stars) offer all the techniques and tricks to producing and performing great music. Over 16.5 hours, the Complete Ableton Live 10 Music Production Bundle takes you on a musical journey that starts with the basics, making it perfect for beginners.
You'll learn how to work the Ableton Live interface and how to use it with some standard audio and MIDI recording, which is a great place to start. After that, lessons (220 in total!) cover things like hardware needs and setup—pretty key to getting this whole thing down—plus advanced recording techniques like warping; all kinds of producing and editing tips and tricks that you'll learn through the use of drum samples to edit, arrange, and create unique beats; a deep dive into all of the Ableton Live Instruments; how to incorporate synths and samplers; and more.
And if you're seriously into the idea of hosting your own DJ set (or, perhaps, battle) on Instagram live, you won't want to miss the final two courses that are dedicated to the art of the modern grandmaster. These lessons teach you how to get the most out of Ableton Live's MIDI and audio effects capabilities, how to use the Racks interface, the basics of using controllers, and some other tricks, so you can master, produce, DJ, and perform music. As a bonus, there's a cameo by DJ James Patrick to show you some of the techniques he uses at the club.
The timing is right and so is the price. The Complete Ableton Live 10 Music Production Bundle is on sale now for $29.99, a savings of 97%.

Software apps are a dime a dozen. Well, if you’re going by their actual monetary cost, maybe not really.
