I work primarily in the studio, these are great tips and a great delivery by DJ Kiva!
Awesome video course! Dj Kiva did an excellent job. He shows us a very detail path from a Classic DJ Rig to the Djing techniques, setings and functions on Ableton Live. Explains in detail and practical mode, every about controller set-up, decks, mapping, EQs and crossfader control. The importance of the Audio Interface and cueing on headphones. This tutorial , explains in depth the use and sense of Warping for Djs, as well as the concepts and applications of Blending & Looping.
This is the best course I've seen so far for DJing with Ableton. Simple, clear and to the point. I'm looking forward to the next course by Kiva.
Wow what a great teacher and an amazing class. Can't wait for the next one. His passion really shines through as he shares the knowledge.
I had DJ Kiva as a teacher at Dubspot. His teaching method is outstanding - and this course is no different. Perfect pacing and prompts to try out some of the techniques on your own between chapters. Highly recommend this DJing with Ableton course and looking forward to the Advanced class later on.
