Ableton Live Simpler

Thavius starts by looking at Simpler, a classic-style sampling instrument. You learn to easily slice samples, pitch them up and down, loop them, stretch them, filter them... Simpler is perfect for quick sound design work, but don't be fooled by its name because, as you'll see, it can do a lot. It even has features not available in its bigger brother, Sampler.


Ableton Live Sampler

Sampler is a more advanced instrument that allows you to create complex and layered sounds from multiple samples. Thavius shows you everything about it... You learn about Key Zones, Modulation, Waveshaping, all that good stuff! You even learn to do Frequency and Amplitude Modulation synthesis (FM and AM) on audio samples.
