Welcome to Ableton Live 12 - the ultimate DAW for music production, songwriting, composition, film scoring, game audio, and more.

In Part 7 of my comprehensive class, we cover Max4Live. (There are tons of patches in this lesson, free for you to use!)

  • Max4Live is an incredibly powerful tool within Ableton Live 12 Suite. It is a visual programming language that lets you build anything you can dream in the realm of audio, video, and control.

"Visual Programming Language?" I know that sounds like a daunting subject, so I'm giving you two ways to approach it:

  • Learn how to harness it: 
  • I begin with a focus on "secret weapons" created in Max that are free to open up and see. Some are from me, but many are from the extensive community of programmers who give away their work. I teach you how to tap into this world for your own benefit.

  • Learn how to build with it.
  • Then, we dive into making programs (they call them "patches" in Max). I dissect some of my own patches so you can see how things work under the hood, letting you keep the patch and dissect it yourself. Then, we build some together!

Do you want a dynamic MIDI generator that can play pretty melodies, forever? We make one in this class.

This is truly one of my favorite topics to teach. It's such an amazing, versatile tool with the potential to do anything. I'm aware of how intimidating that sounds, so my class is built specifically to break it down for non-programmers like you and me.

Learn to produce amazing music with my systematic approach.

Why Learn from Me? In addition to being an Ableton Certified Trainer, I’m also a tenured university professor with a Ph.D. in Music Composition, AND a dedicated professional music producer. I've had a few tracks on the charts in the last few years, and a long series of awards for my teaching. My passion for teaching and staying at the forefront of music production techniques brings a unique perspective to everything I teach.

Tens of thousands of students have taken my Ableton Live 9, 10, and 11 classes.
