Ableton Live is the cross-platform software which has rocked the music world - gathering ardent fans in a way usually associated with performers rather than software. Musicians, DJs, remixers, composers, and producers alike have embraced Live, and it's fast becoming the universal software studio.
This book will give Live novices an insight into working methods that otherwise would take months to discover. For the more experienced user it promises a quick catch-up with Live's latest developments (including new software instruments, complex instrument and effects chains, the phenomenal audio slicing, and full video functionality), and a new perspective on some of Live's more established features.
The book does not duplicate the Live user manual, it expands upon it, and introduces creative concepts, workflow enhancements, and workrounds for common objectives and problems. It also includes interviews with high-profile Live users in a variety of musical genres, passing on their real-world experiences to you.
Although the Live interface is remarkably simple, there's a lot of power under the surface. This book will show you new ways to access that power.

Good Book To Learn This Music Production Software Aug 16, 2008
This is the book to learn this particular Music Program, by all means, this is not a substitute to the Ableton Manual but merely a companion to that, to get the best results out of this book, you need first to have the actual software install on your computer to follow through with the tips and trick it teaches, basically giving you a basic definition of the feature in question followed by a suggestion example to apply to your musical projects.
The illustrations shown here are quite clear throughout the book with big snapshots showing where you need to be around Ableton at all times which is very helpful, this is the area where most books fall short, drowning the user with endless text with not enough visuals to follow through.
The author (Mr. Delaney) obviously knows the subject matter very well, with the graphic ability to show not just the basic operations, but additional tricks to apply to your piece of music. Ableton Live 7 Tips and Tricks is really what it is, additional ways to use the program to your advantage beyond the Manual. I've been using Ableton Live since version 5 for Multimedia projects and even I've learn different ways of applying effects, dynamics and using hardware keyboards and controllers and better implementing Ableton Live with different Audio and Midi interfaces along with other Software's as VST or Rewire
Conclusion: To get the best results out of this book, I suggest reading the Manual first and the built-in Tutorials that comes with Ableton Live to get real world satisfying results out of your Multimedia. Newcomers, Intermediate and Advanced User will all benefit greatly from this book. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
