Advanced DAW for Songwriters: Ableton Live
Building on student's Ableton Live skills developed in SW-181, this course provides the songwriter with the tools to compete in the current marketplace, equips them with the tools and strategies to be in control of their content, enhances their songwriting skills/workflow, provides them with creative digital tools to use in their writing, and increases their employability. Students record their original songs, learning advanced recording skills, including mic placement, recording vocals, EQ and compression, preproduction, overdubs, and mixing. Students sonically recolor existing songs using their writing and production skills, as well as constructing a musical piece from found sounds or samples. Students also create a collaborative performance piece.
