Ableton Live Mixer

Continuing from our last episode, in which we got to grips with Live’s insert effects, Liam O’Mullane guides us through the mixing environment in Live 10. The mixing view is where you’ll be balancing levels of your instruments, pushing them into a stereo space and sending them to effects units to make them more interesting. Liam will show you how the send and return channels function in Live 10, how to route audio through different sources and outputs and how to use panorama to send tracks to the left and right speakers.

Other lessons in our Ableton Live Tutorials series so far include:

  • Exploring the interface
  • Arrangement and session view
  • Choosing instrument sounds
  • MIDI clip recording and editing
  • MIDI clip programming
  • Using Audio Clips
  • Understanding Warp Modes

Those of you who already know Live inside and out, but are looking to explore other DAWs may want to check out our Logic Tips Series, following a similar pattern to this course.

Liam O’Mullane is an Ableton Live expert and has been working with us for quite some time now, and was even previously Features Editor for MusicTech. He has offered his expertise over at dBs Music and Ask Audio, and has played out as a DJ on BBC 1Xtra radio and won many DJ competitions under the alias The Scratch Technician.
