What You'll Learn

Ableton Rhythm in Electronic Music

This course is ideal for any electronic musician who wants to understand (visually and intellectually) how to create both familiar/standard beats AND innovative/original beats.  From the basics on up, this course will expand your understanding of rhythms and inspire you to reinvent your beats (and maybe make a breakthrough on that old track :).

Where You’ll Start…

We’ll kick things off with a primer on essential beat/time concepts like duple, triple and beats.  Then, we’ll explore polyrhythms, humanizing and use what we learn to construct House, Garage and 2 Step beats.

Design Better Beats

I’ve been an electronic musician and performer since the days of Ableton 4 and this course encapsulates rhythm fundamentals that every beginner electronic musician needs to know.  I’ve learned how to capture beats more easily on Push 2 and how to keep beats feeling human, without them sounding too imperfect…

When You’re Finished…

By the time you’ve finished this course, you’ll have created 3 great beats – House, UK Garage and 2 Step.  You’ll understand how to program beats from scratch AND how to use delays, humanizing, polyrhythms and randomizing capabilities in Ableton to enhance your beats.

I had no idea what I was looking for until your videos on polyrhythm. Its simple to understand, but I didn’t go to music school and I wouldn’t know how to do it. Worth it just for that.
