Abelton Live Basic View on the Session View When rst looking at the default screen when rst

opening up Abelton it can make you feel a little over whelmed, and confused on how to go about writing music in this window. This rst lesson we will be going over the basics of this window and coming to terms with the different parameters found within the Session View The rst thing youll notice is that there is no Time Line. The Time Line has been replaced by clips, or boxes. There are two different types of columns, one for audio les and another for MIDI.

In order to get audio playing in the audio column, you need to select,drag and drop a WAV le found in any of the 3 folders found on the right hand of the window.

You have 3 folders, each one can be navigated in order to nd the sample library you are looking for.

For both the audio and MIDI columns you can have as many as you want or need, but by default the amount is twenty clips per column.

Now for the MIDI. In order for you to get any sound, you need to select an instrument from either the device menu or from your 3rd party plug-in folder which is found in the power plug icon.

To get the VST to work, all you simply have to do is, select the instrument you wish to use, drag and drop on to the MIDI channel. Each channel has the basics that all DAWs have, which is pan,solo,mute and record, which you can nd under the clips.

So there we go everyone, a very basic over view of the Session window found in Ableton. Next lesson we will be going over the in/outs and the possibilities of routing between audio and MIDI. Exciting times ahead!
