Ableton live is very complicated and as a beginner I wanted a book that made it simple to understand to get started. I searched for an 'Idiots Guide' but couldn't find one so I bought this as it appeared by other reviews to be comprehensive. Unfortunatley this is not that book for beginners. . ie I quote "Clips are containers, therefore they loop as Session clips governed by their Clip View Loop Brace". Well that's simple then isnt it - DOH ?? If you DO understand things like that then maybe you will understand this book. It does have lots of detail and I'm sure will help people who already know their way around the program to get better but as a first timer I found it too complicated to follow. As you go though you are told that there are several ways of doing nearly everything.. OK , but I wish at the start of the book they would just explain ONE way in a very simple and easy to follow manner. The book is full of lots of little diagrams - but they don't make it clear visually where to find these bits of the program on the screen. . They should have more shots of the full screen indcating where these smaller diagrams can be found. Also as you read through they say : ' dont forget you have first to do so'n'so'' but then you have to wade back through the book to remind yourself what this so'n'so is ! Also unfortunatley they have chosen to use the difficult-to-view dark grey colour scheme for the diagrams. I dont know why this is the default in Ableton but there are other much lighter colour schemes in the viewing options that make the whole thing much easier to view and read. A friend told me about that. I am not new to music production and have been using Protools for about 10 years so I am used to some of the jargon but this is written for an DAW expert not a beginner

Easy to read style and a great accompaniment to the software. As a relative beginner, I don't find myself lost in the terminology.

with any book explaining how to make music it can be a real learning curve and far too much information to digest , but with this book you can just pick it up and go to any chapter you dont have to read it from start to finish i find this very helpful as i already know how to do somethings but want to learn other parts of ableton . this is a must have i highly recommended this book 10/10
