Learn By Doing It

In this course you'll learn how to design your own sounds from scratch using Ableton's Operator synth. We'll crack open this beast to make sub-bass instruments, pads, leads and all sorts of dynamic sounds that evolve over time.

By the end you'll have a solid understanding of synthesis including Oscillators, Filters, ADSR Envelopes, LFO modulators and more.

Best of all, this revolutionary Session LessonĀ® tutorial gives you an interactive experience where you learn by doing hands-on activities right inside Live!  

Want to unlock your imagination and design original sounds that grab people's ear?  This is the course for you.
