FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is this class for?
This class is for producers that understand the basics of Live and want to learn about Live’s more advanced features. The course will teach students advanced workflows that will add a deeper dimension to their music.
What is the time commitment and class schedule?
We offer classes that meet from once per week to several times per week, so you can choose a class that suits your schedule best. You will be expected to devote about 3 hours of time per week, outside of class, to practice the concepts covered each week.
What equipment do I need to take this class?
All you need is a laptop with Ableton Live installed and a pair of headphones. You can download the free demo of Ableton Live here. We’ll provide a MIDI keyboard and Ableton Push for you to use during class.
Do you offer discounts on Ableton Live and other software?
Yes, as a 343 Labs student, you are eligible for a 40% discount on an Ableton Live license and can get discounts on most software and hardware through us. Just let us know, and we will help. If you prefer to try out Live before buying, you can download a free 30-day demo here.
What edition of Ableton Live do I need? Can I use an older version of Live?
We recommend that you use Ableton Live Suite or Ableton Live Standard. If you are using an older version of Live (such as Live 9), you can use that, although we always recommend using Live 10.
Will there be homework, and will I get feedback from my instructor?
Yes, you will be getting assignments after every class to practice and apply the concepts you learned. You will also be working towards completing your first track and presenting it to the class on the final day. Students will present their assignments at the beginning of every class, and the instructor will be giving feedback and making improvement suggestions.
What happens if I miss a class?
If you miss a class, you can watch the recording, or refer to the class notes emailed to you by your instructor after every class. You can also arrange a makeup class with your instructor for €50.
Do you offer refunds if I change my mind?
Yes, we do. You can read our full refund policy here.
Can you transfer me to a different class if the class is too easy or hard, or if my schedule changes?
We would be happy to transfer you to a different class if you let us know within the first three sessions. We usually don’t charge for making a transfer.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes, we do. Please contact us to arrange it.
Why are you called 343 Labs?
