Ableton Live 10 - The Session View Explained

Live's Session view is where you can experiment with clips, loops and arrangements, DJ with Live and much more. Olav Basoski shows you how it works in this short video.  

Ableton Live 10 has arrived with a whole bunch of new features to help you make music. But if you're new to Live, where should you start? Live expert Olav Basoski is here with a brand new course covering everything you need to know to get up and running. In this short video from the course Ableton Live 10 101: Quick Start Guide, Olav explains how the Session View works. 

The Session View in Live is where you build, audition and experiment with loops in clip slots before later going on to arrange them into a song in the Arrangement View. It's also where you can perform, DJ-style with your clips if you have a connected controller like an Ableton Push or AKAI device. Olav shows you how to create jam sessions and experiment with playing different combinations of parts. The Session View is one of Live's most fun ways to make music. Check out the rest of the course to find out everything you need to know to get started in Live 10.

In this 22-tutorial course, legendary producer and trainer Olav Basoski shows you how to get up and running quickly with this amazing audio production and live performance tool that is Live 10.

Olav starts by showing you the building blocks of any Live projects. You learn how to jam and experiment with clips and scenes in Session View, you discover MIDI and Audio tracks, and you learn to apply effects using Sends and Returns. Olav explains all the essential elements of Live’s interface: the Tempo & Transport controls, the Quantization menu, as well as the all-important Browser where you can find all the tools, sounds and instruments you want to use in your projects.

Live’s session view is perfect to use as a sketchpad or for jamming, but of course, Olav also covers the more traditional Arrangement View in great details. You discover different ways to zoom in and out, how to work with the grid, and how to quickly do edits. Continuing with the course, you also learn about Warping, automation, and you get a tour of Live’s built-in audio effects.
