Ableton Live is a great DAW (digital audio workstation) that appeals to users at all levels from beginners to experts. But if you are new to the platform, things might initially seem a little daunting. Luckily, Rishabh Rajan is here with a whole course to help you get up and running in Live 10.
In this short video from the course Ableton Live 10 103: Audio Essentials, Rishabh walks you through the process of recording audio in Session view - one of the core concepts when using Live.
You'll see how to check in the Preferences that the audio input settings are all correct, then how to assign inputs and outputs to pick up your external sound source - in this case, a synthesizer. Rishabh explains how to activate monitoring and its various different modes so you only hear signal when you need to.
After switching on the click track, he proceeds to record a clip and then show you how to edit the recorded take. With this short video you'll quickly learn how to set up and record audio tracks in Live's Sesion view, and with the rest of the videos in the course, you'll get a complete rundown of everything you need to know about working with sound in Live!
