FAQs

What Software Is Used?

This course is taught using Ableton Live Intro, as that is the most accessible and economical version of Live available to the most users. However if you have Standard, Suite or Lite, you are still in great hands and will get a ton out of this course! Many of the features are similar and all of the topics on theory, sound design, arranging etc., are widely applicable, regardless of DAW or version of Live.

What version of Live do I need?

This course is taught using Live 10, but if you have an earlier version of Live, that works great too!

Do I need a computer? Mac or Pc?

Ableton Live is compatible on both Mac and PC, so either option is great! 

What will I need to take this course?

All you need is a computer, a copy of Ableton Live and headphones or speakers. If you wish to do recordings, you will also probably want some type of Audio Interface. There are no additional purchases necessary as we tried to keep the requirements to a minimum so the course is open to as many folks as possible.

Will we use any 3rd party plugins or additional paid software in this course?

We will use some 3rd party plugins however they are all FREE ๐Ÿ˜Š Again, the goal for this course was to keep the price barrier to entry as low as possible. No paid plugins, no expensive extras. As we are using Live Intro, we found that there are some great free plugins that can help us get a lot of extra mileage, particularly in the synth department. The details on the plugins used and where you can download/install them are revealed once you enroll. 

How long is the course?

As of now, there are about 50 videos, totaling over 7+ hours. It might even be over 8 hours by the time we launch! (Not all videos are uploaded and fully reflected in the course preview above).

When does the course launch?

We will go live on July 21st, 2020!

Is there any benefit to purchasing the course now?

Yes! There is a discount code available now for folks who pre-enroll. $100 Off using PRESALE-LOVE

How long will I have access?

You will have access as long as the course is available! There is no expiration date so you will be able to refer back to the videos whenever you like.

Do you drip feed the content? (Time delay when new lessons are available)

Nope! We find that super annoying, so you are encouraged to go at your own pace! You will have access to all the content immediately, with nothing held back. 

Is Liam Shy an Ableton Certified Trainer? What does that mean?

Yes! Liam Shy is a 100% official Ableton Certified Trainer, through Ableton directly. It is an extremely rigorous process that ensures he is competent to teach and posses a deep knowledge of Ableton's hardware & software, as well as music production in general. For more information, please visit: https://www.ableton.com/en/certified-training/liam-shy/

Is there anything you don't cover in this course?

This course will cover the foundations of how to use Ableton Live, as well as an overview of every single plugin included in Live Intro. The plugins specific to Standard and Suite are reserved for future classes.  While we do go through how to compose from start to finish, we have specifically left out the process of mixing and mastering, which will be revealed at a later date as a separate course due to the large amount of additional time needed to cover these topics properly.

I'm a complete beginner - is this course for me?

Yes! This course is designed for folks who are starting at square one. This is the perfect course for you!

I'm an advanced user, will I get anything out of taking this course?

There is still a ton that you can glean from this course, but some sections you might be able to skip. If you are interested in diving deeper into the specifics of how each plugin truly works, sound design techniques (including with some pretty unique 3rd party instruments), or music theory/composition training, then you will still get a lot out of this class. However if you are looking for a very advanced course, then sign up for the e-mail list to be notified when more advanced courses are revealed at a later date.

I have other questions, how can I get in touch?

Drop us a line! [email protected] We look forward to speaking with you!

Testimonials

โ€œI have know Liam for over five years now, I meet him at Pyramind and Audio engineering school in San Francisco. He was an instructor at Pyramind and he taught me everything I know about using Ableton Live and music production. The reason I enjoyed his class is because he always had interesting new ideas on how to use Ableton which I had never seen anyone use. His classes were always fun and informative, it always felt very short because we covered a lot of material that was important to improving my production. I was very impressed by his knowledge that even to this day I still take all my tracks to him for mixing and mastering. Iโ€™m so glad that I met Liam because my music production would not be the same without all his help. Thanks you much Liamโ€
Ka'nete M.
โ€œLiam is such an engaging and entertaining instructor. He makes the information presented accessible to his students of all different levels, and he is so incredibly passionate about music. His use of personal anecdotes and sense of humor makes learning enjoyable, which can often be challenging when learning such a complex subject. He brings his zest for life and intricate knowledge of the music industry to his students, which is a huge asset. Liam wants his students to achieve greatness and to succeed with flying colors, so he is definitely an instructor I feel has been of great value to me. Any class Liam creates, I am happy to take!โ€
Alexis H.
"I knew Liam for a number of years during my time at Pyramind.  He was the instructor for many of my Ableton related courses.  Liam's knowledge of audio production is nothing short of excellent.  He is able to explain detailed concepts to beginners in a comprehensive way, which makes them immediately accessible.  His understanding of current genres and production styles is vast and makes his knowledge all the more pertinent to young and upcoming producers.  There was never a production technique he was not familiar with.  He has a natural ability as a communicator and everyone seems to get along with Liam.  Liam will bring life to your music with technical production techniques and his unmatched passion for music."
Steven S.
โ€œLiam Shy is โ€œThe Real Deal!โ€ Iโ€™ve been in the performing arts industry for over 15 years and guys like him are second to none. He not only has the technical knowledge and over 10 years of real experience as a premier DJ in the San Francisco Bay Area, but he also has exceptional attention to detail and a great attitude which is a rare find. I learned more about digital production in a few hours with Liam than what I learned in a semester long digital audio class in college. Anyone who is serious about learning music production should seek out Liam Shy.โ€ 
Levi M.
โ€œI had the pleasure of having Liam as my instructor for a music production class in San Francisco a couple of years ago.  Liam is that rare instructor who has deep subject matter knowledge and at the same time is also a very gifted communicator / structured thinker.  The results are nothing less than a joy for even the most demanding students.  Anyone looking to learn music production would benefit immensely from Liamโ€™s expertise and passion.โ€
Ian K.
"Liam is an amazing teacher! He uses teaching methods that are clear and understandable. If something is confusing, he is happy to try again to explain it so that it is easier to understand. 
He puts a lot of effort into each lesson both in terms of learning outcome and production value.
For online lessons he uses multiple high definition cameras to make sure every aspect of what he shows you is easy to see. After only a few classes I felt very comfortable continuing to explore Ableton Live 10 on my own. Liam also focuses a lot on teaching how to promote yourself in the music industry to become a successful producer."
