FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is this class for?
This class is for complete beginners who have not had any formal musical training or music production experience. It is also for students that have dabbled with Ableton but not had any formal training and have gaps in their knowledge, which they would like to fill by taking a structured course and learn from a reliable source.
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. It is also useful to have a small MIDI keyboard. You do not need to have an Ableton Push (although they are pretty cool!).
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.
