Book Description

8 May 2012 Quick Pro Guides
Go beyond the basics of Ableton Live 8 with this book of audio making and mangling recipes, tips, and mixing/mastering techniques. Ableton Live is undoubtedly the most flexible audio application available today: Use it for sound design for music, film, theater, and games; composition; improvising with other musicians; live looping; DJing; and, of course mixing and mastering music. Author, mastering engineer, certified Ableton trainer, and power-user Jake Perrine will inspire you to use Live in new ways, and to improve how you already use it. Striking a delicate balance of artistry and theory, he will expand your repertoire for both the studio and the stage. From inspiring recipes for sculpting audio magic and mayhem, to in-depth discussions of mixing and mastering that you would expect to learn in an audio production school, this book is designed to help you "out of your box" into a larger world. It will deepen, enliven, inspire, and improve and your tracks, audio, and performance skills with Ableton Live 8.

4.0 out of 5 stars good start to Abelton live 29 Sep 2013
By G-Reed
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very helpful, I had not used Ableton live before and this book and his first book really helped in my understanding of the workings of Ableton. this book is a little more advanced to the first book and I find it to be well written and easy to understand and that was what I was looking for.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very, very basic 5 Jan 2013
By Reviewer11922 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you completely have no idea what you are doing with Ableton Live then this could be helpful. However, it just barely scrathes the surface on sound design, mixing, and mastering.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could have been GREAT! 27 Aug 2012
By Smoothcut - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a great companion to Jake Perrine's other book - "Producing Music with...". It covers some topics more in depth such as mixing automation and using MIDI controllers.
Jake has an easy-to-follow, laid-back writing style that will keep you interested as he moves through various topics.
My only complaint is that this book is being marketed as a more in depth exploration of Ableton Live, and yet 50 or 60 pages are wasted duplications of the exact same basic information given in the Producing Music... guidebook. Bummer dude.
Since this book has 30% less fresh material than the other book, It should cost 30% less IMHO.
That being said, I do not regret buying both books, they are going for bargain prices and there is a good solid foundation to had in Ableton Live by doing the all the exercises in both books.
Peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW 28 Jan 2013
By William H. Whitsett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
jake perrine has the understanding and the skills to convey this understanding. not only that, but his writing is a joy to read. he's smart, he's funny and his books are very well organized. he'll lead you logically from one step to the next in ableton, all the time deepening your understanding and unlocking more and more potential. after even a portion of the books, you'll imagine projects you've never before conceived, and be able to realize them efficently and with increasing excitement! can you say 'open sesame'?

4.0 out of 5 stars review 24 April 2012
By smudga - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
jakes enthusiasm for music production is immediately evident in his book. It's very well written, and jakes knowledge of ableton is top drawer.The book follows a project that is on the accompanying cd, explaining various techniques in ableton live from keyboard shortcuts to mastering in live. I personally found the sound design and mastering chapters a little bit lightweight in content, as these are such huge areas they could have been covered in a bit more depth. If your hoping to learn to design your own patches with operator or any other built in synths this wont be covered. Having said that there is comprehensive coverage of using racks, processing, midi and controllers, and mixing and automation to name a few. Overall i thought the book was excellent value for money and I would recommend the book for anyone looking to improve their skills with abletons software.
