Mo makes it all sound so simple and best of all - fun. He gives clear examples of each effect and covers everything that the intro-level user should know. Thanks Mo!

Ableton has the best bundle of plug-ins you can have with any software, well right up there with reason, I just wish that this would have touch on demystifying rewire (maybe a soon to be tutorial?).

Good overview of the effects, could use a few more useful examples of some of the more creative ones but pretty good.

Great course! I think its an overview of all the effects Ableton includes and allows you to start navigating thru them. My advice is tthat after every block, do some experimentation with those FXs

This is a very nice video to start if you have never looked up at Live's Fxs.
If you are already a pioneer of FX you'll not learn nothing new!
Nice tutorial by the way!

i thought this was a bit light on details ... didn't think it went in depth enough

I really enjoyed Mo's tutorial on Ableton's effects. Although i feel it was more of an intro to using the effects, it was still nevertheless very informative. He was clear & friendly and fun going through the tutorial with him. One of the best so far.

Very good tutorials. Although I would of preferred some more examples of the effects in action during a track build, it clearly answers any doubts and does what it says on the tin.. Well done again for another great one!!
