DJ Kiva is an artist, multi-instrumentalist, producer, Ableton Certified Trainer, and founder of record label Adios Babylon. He has delivered his music through high energy performances and DJ sets through sound systems from Brooklyn to Tokyo.
One of the key features in Ableton Live is the ability to quickly and easily "warp" tracks.
"Unlike music stored on tape or in a traditional digital audio workstation, the music in Live remains "elastic" at all times. Live is capable of time-warping samples while streaming them from disk so as to synchronize them to the current Live Set's tempo. This happens without affecting the pitch, which can be changed independently. Mixing and matching audio from different origins is therefore extremely easy." - Ableton Live Reference Manual.
There are many different tools and techniques involved. DJ Kiva has set up a course to not only get you started, but to get you well along the path to being a warping master.
He starts from the beginning and explains the key functions involved and shares his best approaches to warping all types of audio files. Towards the end he gets into warping live audio, acapellas, and dealing with issues you might run into.
Whether you are just getting started or you are looking to go to the next level this is definitely the course for you!
