What people are saying about the course.
Rob Jones is a natural communicator. I can honestly say that this course is first class. Rob explains things clearly and succintly. For me, this is one of the best things I have done. As it has allowed me to get into Ableton Live and enjoy being creative without being bogged down with all the technical stuff. I couldn''t recommend this course more highly. It really is top notch.
Electronic music production has come a long way since I used an AtariST 1024 to run Steinberg Pro12 before our band split at the end of the 1980's. We've been out of music creation since then, until the original line up got back together during 2011. Having settled on Ableton Live 8 as a flexible and creative tool, with a refreshingly clear layout, being an old guy I needed clear instruction to get me up to speed. Rob's video tutorials are just what was needed - clearly presented at good pace, each one containing about the right amount of information. In a couple of weeks I have developed a well rounded grasp of Ableton that would otherwise have taken a couple of months of frustration... or more. Money well spent.
Hey Rob!! Just wanted to say thanks for the great lessons learnt from the video clips! I was fortunate enough to get the course as a birthday gift from my girlfriend as i keep talking bout taking the courses. Even though ive been working with Ableton for quite a few years, just had to see it all in detail and at the same time ive learnt some awesome and exciting new tricks to mess around with!!
So, yeah, thanks so much for the lessons learnt from this course, it has made a huge difference in my music production and within the short period of time i have watched these videos. Im yet to complete Course 2 but im really excited to see the new tricks you have up your sleaves!
Thanks again for the amazing course Rob!! Will definitely recommend your online course to anyone that has interest
As a long time DJ, it was a natural progression to move into production. The only problem is that I had no idea where to start. The Ableton Live course put me on the fast track to understanding music production and within a very short time I was able to wrap my head around the software. This course has been an essential tool for me and I highly recommend it. Thanks guys!
I have been using live now for about a year and I did a weekend course locally to try and learn how to use live
to it's full potential and I have to say what I've learned on this course in only a few modules is huge compared
the other course I did...each subject is explained
really clearly and a huge amount is covered in just 20 mins.
I've just finished the beginners course and I can't
wait to start the advanced course.I'm really enjoying it.
And Rob Jones does a great job explaining things.
Keep up the excellent work guys..

I was very keen to get into Ableton Live and wanted a user friendly approach to learning. Rob's style, skills and delivery have made understanding the software really easy. Can't speak highly enough of the course!
I've have enjoyed the course so far. I've been playing around with Ableton for a bit, so some of the very basic concepts are already familiar, but I've definately picked up a few pointers and shortcuts from Rob along the way.
Overall, Rob's pace is just right - I tend to pause and rewind bits and bobs, and try to play along as he demonstrates the techniques, making sure I've caught all the main points. I'm finding this to be a good method, but obviously it means the lesson takes a bit longer to do.
Having the tutorial to explore in my own time is a big plus, and certainly helps to cement the lesson. The PDF notes are a handy primer and, much like the lessons, are the right length - just a few pages with the main points.
Anyway, great work. You guys are doing a great
Thanks for your assistance. Also just wanted to say how much I am loving the course. I have had live for about a year and learnt a lot from the internet but there are so many things I was missing. Keep up the great work.
I'm really enjoying the course. It's well laid out and the examples and samples help a lot. I'm probably not your typical client - I'm 58 years old - and I mainly use Live as an all purpose DAW. It just makes more sense to me.
Your course has opened the program up a great deal. Worth every penny.
Thanks to Live-Courses.com I brought my ableton understanding to the whole new level.
Rob is teaching us not only using the ableton itself but also shows lots of usefull tips for modern music creation.
Everything is clearly explained, step by step, so you can feel the progress with every lesson.
Thanks for a great course!
Happy New Year :)
Hi Team, I have found the course to be excellent.
The great thing about it is you can do a bit as you go along and Rob's teaching style is consistent and to the point with full explanation of every detail.
I believe this course to be great value for money and a must for anyone who is getting used to Ableton.
To Rob, Tim and the rest of the team, I have just finished the course I just wanted to again say a massive thanks!!
I bought Live 7 a while ago but never really got into it. I often played around with the program but only used it just to timestretch my beats, before importing into Logic. But after doing both Abelton courses and upgrading to 8, I am now finding that Live is my go-to DAW weapon of choice!.
I'm now playing Dj gigs with live... and I love it. Rob, Thanks mate without you and this course, I'd be still jammin in the garage!!
Bring on the Logic course....

First i would like to encourage any DJ, Musician,Producer or Sound Engineer to take these courses. Specially DJ's will argue about the digital stuff, but with having been there and done it , i can say besides scratching a vinyl no one with a pair of Technics 1200's and a mixer can do what this software does.
Rob is a great person when it comes to teaching and presentation. I have done both within one month(took 7 days off), but also have to admit being in the Audio(PA & FOH) & DJ bizz for 25 years. But i learned a lot and might need to review some chapters so now and than specially about synth's and midi i am not a musician. Also Rob has given me some great info on controllers and other related stuff. Just a fair and straight forward advice.
Any e-mail was within 24 hrs responded,
I would already like to take the opportunity to say thanks to a great course.. It might sound weird but i cycled through the course 1 already. i used loop master pack and my own Synth on VST from Core and i managed to fill in some tunes and stabs. When out of sync or key-sounding wrong i transposed it and it works out.....
I can't tell you how happy i am with this Course and this Software. It is the most incredible stuff in the world....So far i made a 20 Min song with in between some jam session and remix DJ style stuff fluctuating from funky riffs and into techno Benny Benassi style. And i made a Italo style song of 3 min.
I will practice some more before i begin with Course 2.....
Thanks so far..
I just want say THANK YOU for creade this amazing course.....
Rob explain in a simple way, concepts about electronic music....because of him and your courses, i have stopped frustrating experimentation.....and now I know what i do with the knobs on a synth. I stop play patches on a vst and make my own....it's very funny!!!!!
I used Cubase for many years....and in 2002 with name of FConnection i made 3 production on DEEPERFECT Records (Stefano Noferini label, an italian dj) but now i meet live-courses.com....and WoW....I WANT PRODUCE AGAIN!!!!
In simply words THE COURSE IS AMAZING

This is not some phoney paid testimony. I have tried a lot of DVD instructional training vids and i have read books on ableton live , but only after trying live-courses.com i finally felt like i could build a nice sounding track without constantly stopping and looking something up. The training provides step by step examples. plus ability to email Rob Jones himself. can't wait till logic training is ready!

I just finished the beginners course yesterday and am completely satisfied. I had no prior knowledge about abletone live, nor about any other music software.
I had bought live8 out of an impulse, and was a bit frustrated by the built-in lessons of the official version of live.
Live-Courses.com lessons are crisp-clear, entertaining, and give a very thorough training.
Rob did a marvelous job. I have now quite a bit of confidence, and am amazed at the quality and versatility of live8.
I encourage anyone to take this course.
I am now ready to take the advanced course and hope I will be as satisfied with it as i am with the beginners'one.
thanks again guys,

I'm in my late 40s and new to this stuff. I tried Pro Tools, and I tried Sonar, and although I loved Sonar it was a little too complex for this old dog to learn, but Ableton Live is ridiculously straightforward in terms of getting good results very quickly, and what your courses do is make the difference to enable old dogs like me to learn all the new tricks that helps me put out the best I can. No excuses any more!! Great courses....thanks for opening my eyes at last!
Yo Live-Courses team,
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Rob, Tim and the rest. The course is really great!, I've been playing the modules again and again picking up different bits each time.
Also cheers for getting back to me so quick with any questions I have.
If anyone seriously interested in producing their own tracks is thinking of doing this course, don't think... just do it!

The course was awesome really! I enjoyed lot's of new tips & grew my production skills to the mix, Rob is a great teacher & funny to watch.
I am finding the course extremely good. Having somebody explain how they personally use the programme rather than just a video running through the features really adds to its usefulness.
Hi there !
Rob is amazing ! whenever i have questions he emails me back within 24 hours, he is helpful and encouraging :) The videos are very helpful - I love that i can just keep rewinding it to make sure i don't miss anything. He is also easy on the eyes ;) hehe
Before this course i had 2 different teachers who were helpful but i found them only teaching me things the way they do things... so i found it limiting and frustrating.
So far this has been the most effective way of learning for me.
I look forward to the other modules and being able to finally make sense of making tracks :)
I have attached a picture of my beautiful face.. hehe
Just to let you know that I am busy with Course 1 and thoroughly enjoying it. I am a professional musician who have been using Pro Tools for 10 years and this takes some adapting. But I am going slow and easy at my own pace and love the way the course is presented.
Thank you very much.

Thanks for an excellent course. I Have tried a lot of courses/tutorials on DVD, download, youtube etc. and think this one is the best by far. Here is some of the reasons why:
1. The educational level is very high and professional. Each chapter covers an important part of Live. Everything is presented in a clear ,straightforward way and accompanied with practical examples. (for me as a foreigner ) It is still very easy to hear and understand everything and although the tempo is rather high the learning progression flows naturally in a Steady even pace.
2. The accompanying project material that comes in the extra download contains exactly what is shown in the lessons and now forms a new and important part of my own live library-very useful as a starting point/inspiration for Other pr
I am very happy with the courses and learning the full Ableton experience. In fact I have two albums available at iTunes Stores produced entirely with Ableton resources. They appear by the name of Billy Zelaznog which is my artistic name.

Just a quick note to say a HUGE "Thank you" for your assistance whilst enrolling for the course.
I had some difficulties with my internet connection out here in St. Kitts W.Indies and both Rob and Tim guided me through very smoothly. My emails were replied to immediately and I am now enrolled.
Now enrolled I have done the first couple of modules and I'm already finding a hidden talent I thought I never had whilst using a similar Steinberg product.
Robs ability to put things across in plain English is a talent many people don't possess. I now look forward to switching on the Mac and starting the next module.
I'm enjoying the course immensely. One of the main reasons I signed up for the course was because I like Rob's personality and teaching style. Also I liked the course deal and that it works with both audio (i.e. samples) as well as MIDI in an engaging way.

Just finished the courses, and WOW, so amazing!! The last Video on the Advanced was my favorite!! Rob where did you learn to produce and play music? That track was really cool!!
Will have to go thru things again a second and third time till I get the hang of producing my own music, but this course was worth every penny!!
Will you be doing more courses like this, Im sure there is tons more that ableton can do that was not discussed..
Thanks for the courses! these are great!!
To the guys at Live-courses I must say thanks for this new online course, I DJ with Ableton Live already - and now i am using the software to create tracks too thanks to my new skills!
After taking the advanced level course i definetly have a new level of understanding which has meant my productions have moved up a gear, the course was well paced and supported with good sessions - thanks!

I've had the ableton software for about a year now and knew the basics so did the advanced course and learned loads of new tricks which has really taken me up a level
Hi, I found the course very interesting and covered all aspects of the software in good detail without making it boring. I would recommend it to anyone who is currently using live.
I have already seen many courses like this and Live-courses.com material is very good indeed!
Never used this app before, so I felt to get both series of materials (Beginner and Advanced)! This is a BIG course (9 hours 8 minutes) and covers nearly every aspects of Ableton Live 8.
Having checked the videos now I absolutely got why it is praised by many producers and what it is especially good for. The concept and the structure of both courses offered me a great learning experience and learning something really new and different was a big fun at last! Even the basic Live course surpassed my expectation and resulted sometimes in a high "whoooaaa-factor".
All videos come with great looking PDF materials, they reminded me perfectly what I had watched earlier, so these additional PDFs
