    Live 9.5 In Action Pt. 2 (11:30)


Ableton Live keeps getting better and better, and the newly released Live 9.5 update is chock full of improvements. In this six video tutorial series Ableton trainer Scottie Dugan demonstrates the new features and how to use them creatively.

Scottie first walks you through the many general updates to Live 9.5 that make working in it more productive, like a new Metering Display and default 3rd party Plug-In Mappings. Scottie then explores the four new Filter Circuit types found in the 9.5 update and how you can use them to drive Live's Filter Effects and expand your sonic landscape.

The next 3 videos each cover one of the new Max for Live instruments. First, he discusses Bass, a new analog-style mono-synth with classic synthesizer functionality. Next, he explores Poli, which is similar to Bass but with its own unique parameter set. The last new Max for Live instrument is Multi, a six-engine synthesizer capable of a myriad of interesting sounds and synthesis types.

Scottie saves the biggest update for his final video, the update made to Simpler, which has been redone with three different modes including Classic, One Shot, and Slice. Scottie dives into each of them, along with how you can Warp right inside Simpler, making samples in real-time.

Decent Overview

Nice to see a video dedicated to the updates. One BIG suggestion to Mr. Dugan, make your mouse pointer bigger or highlight it/ change it's color, etc. I, and I'm sure others are watching these videos on an iPad or a MacBook. When someone is new to the software, they don't know where the button, switch or whatever you are pointing to, is located. You routinely fly to whatever button, hit it and are gone. Hard to follow the little pin of a black mouse arrow when you don't know the software. I should have mentioned this in my review of Live but the same can be said for all tutorials. Thanks!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I grew up taking classical piano lessons, so music has always been a part of my life. It started out as a daily chore and eventually evolved into a passion. Now I am very lucky to call it my profession.

2. What training have you had?

After thirteen years of private piano lessons I decided to pursue a formal degree. Two years in and I realized it wasn't for me. From that point on a began teaching myself and taking various online courses that offered subjects that excited me. I've gotten to learn and sit under individuals who are way better than I am.

3. When did you get into recording?

Ableton Live and the ability to make music with a computer were the two biggest reasons I didn't continue pursue a formal degree. I was in a band, we cut a DIY "garage album" and that started the obsession. The once obscured world of synths, hardware and software was now overwhealming as I transitioned away from a piano only mindset.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I have the great privilege to be working with Ableton as one of their Ableton Certified Trainers. Being a part of that community has been really amazing and life changing. I have yet to work with anyone rich and famous... but I have a feeling one day some of these crazy talented people will be. I get to work with students and artists who are chasing their musical dreams. I like the purity and passion that comes with that.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Well, I've always been told that I'm a good teacher but I hated talking to people I didn't know. It took a while to get over those introvert tendencies and fear of public speaking and now I can't get enough. Watching a student get that lightbulb breakthrough or seeing an ignition of passion after the transfer of knowledge creates such a sense of fulfillment for me. I can't not teach.
