The course begins with an in-depth look at Live’s warping and transient modes.

With lots of in-action examples, Kiva teaches how to create DJ-style and glitch effects, and explains why all beat makers should know about clip envelopes, sample offset modulation, time stretching and resampling. But that’s not all!
