Olav Basoski is back and this time he's turned his incredible chart-topping song skills to his new favourite audio tool, Ableton Live 8!
In these new, Pro Level Ableton Live 8 tutorials Olav Basoski shows you how he constructs his monster dance floor anthems in Ableton Live 8. You'll learn insider tips and tricks for structuring your tracks, using compressors, EQs and other DSP effects, and hot mixing tips that will make your songs shred dancefloors the same way Olav's do.
Olav has produced hundreds of Dance records and he owns 3 of the worlds most popular dance music labels: Work Records, Samplitude Records, and Rootz Records. If you want to produce songs like a legend of the house music industry, you need to check out this new tutorial by Olav Basoski.
By far the best introduction tutorial for Ableton Live. Olaf Basoski are making this easy for anyone to understand and have become my favorite tutor. Hope to see more tutorials from him in the future.

One of the best courses I had heard so far on live, this guy knows his stuff and puts it over in such a way you're drawn into his course. Excellent excellent excellent

A comprehensive look at building a track from the ground up using clips. This is a great starting point for Live beginners as Olav dives right in to designing/arranging the various elements.

Olaf Basowski is jovial instructor who makes it easy to follow a workflow. Enjoy this tutorial! I'm working through it for a 2nd time to internalize the finer details in electronic music production.

For starters, the fact that one of the elite names in electronic music is offering his wealth of knowledge to us "superstar" bedroom producers is worth the price of admission.
Olav guided me through fine tuning my Logic skills and now that I've partially jumped ship to Ableton, I sought out his knowledge once againâ€“and was not disappointed. Whether your aim is to create EDM or not, Olav cuts right to the chase. Each video is paced perfectly and Olav's approach is informative as well as entertaining.
There are some MacProVideo.com videos that feature voiceovers from instructors (who shall remain nameless) that border on dull and boring. Then there are other videos that just seem to go on forever...Olav's a natural teacher and I will continue to pick up each of his courses.
He goes over the reasoning behind his order of operations, the usage of certain plugs, shortcuts (including keyboard shortcuts) and all sorts of tidbits that have really propelled my journey into the endless rabbit hole that is Ableton. If you're new to the program or are simply looking to fine-tune your skills, look no further than Olav "Effing" Basoski.

Really great video. But I think it's more of a learning ableton live while making a "dance tune". It doesn't go into the specifics about electro music.
Still a great video and you learn a lot :)

I'm enjoying this very much. While I'm not into this style of EDM, it still sets a very strong foundation for all 4/4-based electronic music; and you can easily see how your genre's needs will be tweakable/adjustable via Live's controls and effects.
Very easy to understand and follow along.
The only clip I find curious is the side-chaining tutorial. There is an even better, faster way to do this in Live (at least from v.7+) But it's another example of how there's always more than one way to achieve a desired result in electronic music. :)
Highly recommend this to either total newbies to production or if you're a DJ and have a basic understanding of DAWs and sequencing.
I've learned more from this series of tutorials over the last week than I've learned over the last few months of self-study. His workflows really help you navigate and set up groups, racks, and effects chains; I would recommend this entire course just because of this section. :)
Very enjoyable and glad I've gone through it. I should also add that I'm watching it in conjunction with the Live 8 101 series - both have TNT's that the other doesn't, so they work well together as you study.
