SOUND DESIGN

Create your own signature sounds

Sound Design is the defining element of modern electronic music, and an essential skill for creating your unique and defining sound as an artist. Average or preset sounds can reduce your song to a ringtone, good sounds will inspire your ideas, and truly great sounds can evolve a simple melody into a masterpiece.

In Liveschool’s Sound Design course, you’ll learn to harness the power of all the instruments built into Ableton Live Suite: how each one works, the special tricks they’re designed for, which ones to use and when. Using these Ableton Live instruments you will learn the fundamentals of sound design and synthesis which you can then apply to every synth, sampler or sound design tool to make any sound you want.

Liveschool courses support both Live 9 and 10, so making the transition to 10 is seamless for all students and past graduates.

FAQ

What skills or experience are needed to do Sound Design?

Sound Design is useful for in-depth exploration beyond the Create & Destroy course.

You can attend this course if you fit into one of the following options.

1. You already have operational knowledge of Ableton Live or basic MIDI programming.

2. You have attended our Create & Destroy course.

 

What happens if I don’t complete my final production projects on time?

During the course you are given creative projects to work on. These help you put your learning into action, while progressing your skills at a comfortable pace. If any of your productions aren’t complete by the due date, there is no penalty – the projects are about creativity and production quality. If you are falling behind for any reason, we can provide one-to-one training to help catch you back up.

 

What if my circumstances change and I can’t attend one or more sessions?

After booking your course you are responsible for attending all dates and we do not refund, nor accept any liability for your loss of course time.
