Level: Any // Watch Time: 42min
As part of the Ableton University Tour, I recently gave a masterclass at dBs Music Bristol on the topic of “Using Chance & Randomness to Enhance Your Creativity”.
In the workshop I explore how you can use the built-in MIDI tools in Ableton Live, as well as some really cool MaxForLive devices to help you come up with ideas when you get stuck, or simply help you generate new ideas you might not have otherwise come across.
Many of the things I cover are similar to those in my video “Generate Unlimited Musical Ideas In Ableton Live”, but in the extended masterclass we go a little deeper and look at ways you can also use chance and randomness to add depth to your sound design and even have Live arrange your songs for you.
Watch the full masterclass below, and be sure to check out some of the other great masterclasses available at the dBs Music YouTube page.
