INTRODUCTION TO ABLETON
Instructor: Greg Gonzalez
Number of sessions: one class
Date / time: Saturday, February 9 (2 pm - 4 pm)
In this two-hour session, you’ll learn what Ableton does and what it can do for you. See the platform at work interfacing with live instruments, controllers and other applications that can put you on the fast track to producing your own music. This workshop will feature a hands-on demonstration and lots of opportunities for Q & A. You don’t need a copy of Ableton to attend (but if you do own the software, feel free to bring along your laptop).
