Dubspot is offering a special 30 | 30 promotion: 30 free video lessons on Ableton Live to users who download and activate Ableton’s free 30-day trial of the software. (The course is also available to all registered owners of Live.) The main goals of the partnership are to help new Live users learn how to turn their ideas into sonic reality and give them a glimpse into Dubspotʼs full Ableton Live curriculum. If participants enroll by the end of June, they will have the entire month of July to access the videos and modules as often as they want and go through the lessons. All those who enroll and get a perfect score on each of the brief quizzes contained in the course are also eligible to win a spot in Dubspot’s full 6-level Ableton Producer Program through our online school.
This free course packs a surprising amount of material into 30 lessons, including DJing with Live, Beat Programming, Simple Sound Design, and Producing a Remix. Participants will learn how to quickly get started making music with Live. Developed by Dubspot Instructor and Ableton Certified Trainer Thavius Beck, the videos and modules also feature loads of great information for advanced Live users.
We are also proud to announce a remix contest for one of the tracks heard in the 30 | 30 course, “Runway” by Blackbird feat. JimiJames and produced by Thavius Beck. To participate, enroll as a student in 30 | 30 and create a remix using the stems provided in Module 4, “Producing a Remix.” When you are finished with your remix, export your final version and upload it to our designated Soundcloud group here.
The winner of the remix contest, chosen personally by Thavius Beck, will receive a QuNeo MIDI controller from Keith McMillen Instruments.
