Intro to Ableton: How to Start a Track

This is an introductory workshop for DJs and enthusiasts alike who have always wanted a crash course in Ableton but have found it largely confusing and inaccessible. We will build a drum rack from scratch and go through the basic elements of an electronic composition. Students will be given the opportunity to share their work after.

This workshop is part of Long Winter's 2021 Together Apart Festival.
