Proper technique is a crucial component to almost every type of development but it can also be one of the most difficult things to learn on your own. Being tuned into efficient, productive workflow can often be the difference between finishing your productions or not.

Learn valuable strategies, tips, tricks and innovative methods for improving productivity, efficiency and quality from an experienced industry professional and expert Ableton Certified Trainer: Timo Preece (Berlin-Germany). Attendees are encouraged but not required to attend both the Saturday and Sunday sessions. Each session’s content will be related but also stand on its own. Feel free to bring a laptop with Ableton Live installed, although this won’t be required for the sessions.

The workshops are limited to 6 students per day to ensure an intimate learning environment and will take place at The Noisefloor, Edinburgh’s unique DIY music and sound production studio. Attendees will be able to take advantage of exclusive, discounted rates on future use of the studio.

The full weekend course will cover topics including:

– Streamlined navigation of Live’s interface
– Roadmaps and templates for efficient music production
– Instrumentation, beat creation tips and techniques
– Automation, modulation, effect processing and beyond
– Efficient signal routing
– Optimizing Live for maximum efficiency
