Learn to make great mixes in one week, with this revolutionary hands-on Ableton Live Course designed for house and techno producers.
Everybody who makes electronic music needs to be able to make a mix that drops deep, heavy Bass and comes with a crisp, wide stereo image on top.
It's harder than it first seems. There are a million details you have to learn about Compression and EQ and everything else.
Usually people get stuck going in circles, wasting tons of time, feeling frustrated, and getting depressed hearing mixes that sound like crap.
You need a plan.
We all run into the same thing when we start making original electronic tracks.
Nothing feels better than sharing one of your tracks and hearing people say, "wow did you make this?"
Here's how you can do that.
Learn how to make your tracks sound Pro with this revolutionary hands-on course.
Basic Mixing for House and Techno
It's unique because you learn by doing guided Activities inside Live instead of watching YouTube videos.
And it's all designed for low-end mixing with House and Techno tracks, where the kick drum is the main character...
The course has four Modules where you learn real audio engineering techniques including Gain Staging, EQ & Compression strategies, Routing, FX and more.
Each Module is a separate Session Lesson® tutorial built inside Live, where you follow along to hear Audio Instructions, see Automated Examples and do Hands-On Activities.
By the end you'll have a mix workflow to take your tracks from sounding amateur to sounding polished and master-ready.
In the first Module we apply basic Mix Tools for cleanup and Gain Staging, to bring out the best of each sound in the Track. You begin learning the Gain Staging Recipe which we will use throughout the course.
In the second Module we make a mix, focusing on the Kick Drum and Sub-Bass levels to get a solid low-end foundation in place.
In Module Three we'll develop a wide spatial 3D stereo sound. You'll learn how to break a big project into subgroups that make it really easy to mix, no matter how large your future sessions become.
The last Module focuses on applying Reverb and Delay FX, consideration of overall Loudness, and exporting a polished Master Mix.
The total course time is estimated at ten hours. You can easily do it in a week.
This includes four hours of Session Lesson time, four hours of practice to apply what you are learning in your own sessions, and two hours to go through the online support materials.
By the end you'll have a completely new strategy for mixing that will allow you to create Professional-sounding Tracks without feeling frustrated or confused.
Our creative Studio TIme is precious... don't waste time guessing what to do with your Mix.
Read these comments from producers who took the course, brought their test mixes through our Track Feedback Crew, and put out new releases. This stuff works.

Hi, I’m Steve Knots.
I’ve been making original electronic music since 1999 with new releases out on Reveller Records, Quazi Delic, Nomadism and Dimbi Deep most recently.
I spent fifteen years working as a professional DJ and doing live sets with Ableton.
And I'm also a trained audio engineer who's setup live sound events with literally hundreds of bands, on large and small PA systems.
My music degree is from the Sonic Arts Center at The City College of New York. (b.f.a. 2003)
I first started tutoring Ableton students in 2008, and I'm the one who invented the Session Lesson® tutorial where you learn by doing hands-on Activities inside Live.
And in this course I teach you the universal mix skills you need to know to make your tracks sound great on everything from headphones to clubs to big outdoor sound systems.
Sign up now and learn the mix techniques that will take you from fooling around in your home studio, to being a published producer with releases you feel proud of.
This course works with Live 9.7, Live10 and Live11
No, the course works with either Standard or Suite. It will not work with Intro or Lite editions.
It works with both Mac and PC, just like Ableton.
Total course time is ten hours. Each Session Lesson tutorial takes about 45 minutes to go through. If you do one per day, and then practice what you learn on your own tracks, you can finish the course in about a week.
No, you do not need to own Push to do this course. A computer and a mouse are enough.
You need a good pair of studio headphones at least. Monitors will make it easier to hear the difference in the examples. You can not do this course with laptop speakers... unless you have a place to practice mixing on real monitors.
No. If you are a total beginner, start with the built-in tutorials that come with the program. This course will not teach you how to do basic program operations like dropping plugins, playing clips, starting and stopping playback, or editing audio/MIDI.
You get 24-7 access to the course materials on the Mixitecture member's site and you can start whenever you want. The site tracks your progress to help you stay focused whenever you need to take a break! There's no rush and there's no time limit to your access.
