Solid Foundation for DJing, Great Teacher
This is a great course in explaining the basics of DJing and how it relates to LIVE. I see this course as more laying a foundation to set you up in a great place to really thrive in the "Action" part of DJing a little bit later. You get very familiar and comfortable with the LIVE software, parameters, and features in LIVE that are really great for DJs like warp mode, audio effect racks and MIDI/Key mapping. Toward the end of the tutorial, you start to get into the more active components of mixing songs... overall, it lays a great foundation for DJing with Ableton. I look forward to the next volume.
