I had no idea how much potential for creativity can be discovered in Ableton racks! Definite game changer for me.
Takes some getting through, but if you can stick with Noah and follow his actions in your own copy of Live, you'll start to appreciate the usefulness and complexity of racks.
Nice Tutorial! on working with the Racks in LIVE. I really enjoyed the parts on working with the macros within the racks. the section on Midi/capturing midi was also good.
By far the most powerful tutorial on Ableton you could watch. Noah does an amazing job at guiding you through it.
Nice course, lots of good info on how to use the different racks creatively.
Quick and good - a really good description of how racks work within Ableton. Thanks for this tutorial!
Well narrated, well thought-out, straightforward… there's nothing here to criticise. If all tutorials were like this, learning online would be grand.
Another great course with lots of base knowledge. Seemed a bit short but I don't see how you could have made it longer unless you went through more examples. Great instruction.
Noah has done a great job with this tutorial. He makes understanding the flow very easy to grasp regardless of your current skill level. Nice work, my friend!!!
Great! Easy to follow, but not too slow. His understated way to talk makes it easy to concentrate on the stuff to learn.
this is really good ...some good examples and good depth ... top work
The tutorial was in-depth and mindboggling. Noah Pred thoroughly explained all the concepts of racks in a very casual way which made it easier to catch on the the ideas presented. I really enjoyed it. Will have to buy the tutorial to get more comfortable with using racks. Thanks!
Haven't finished watching the whole thing yet but enough to get the gist of it. What I've seen so far leaves me impressed. Ableton is an amazing DAW & racks are just so easy to tweak in so many ways it defies imagination, just the way I like it! To me Live it's really a multifaceted musical instrument. The nervous pace of the vids is well suited for those who are familiar with Ableton. For those new to it, hang in there, watch them as much as you need to & develop an adventurous mindset so to become as good as our friend Noah here. Many thanx for this learning experience.
Great vid! Very useful stuff!
Unbelievable Noah!!! I can't wait to start messing around with this on stage, this is the best Ableton tutorial I've seen so far and I hope to see more titles from you. Thanks, brother!
This is exactly the type of tutorial I have been waiting for. Although, I already knew what racks were and the power of racks, i never knew or understood the concepts of racks within racks. While it is a complecated concept, i can def. see myself using it in every production I do from this day forth , now that I fully understand.
