Very good tutorial about getting the most out of Live 9. I've been working with Ableton for years but learned a lot of inspiring tricks and techniques.
One of the best tutorials I'v watched. Very insightful Thanks so much!
This is a pretty good description of SFX Layering. It seems to be a good starting point for a Layering Course!!!
Fantastic! Inspiring and enjoyable on so many levels. Timo showed us all a wide variety of techniques that can lead to many joyful hours exploring both sound design potential and arrangement setups. I learned more about signal routing as a creative medium than I have during many other efforts (by book or video).
Its Awesome very Awesome thank you MVP and Timo Preece for this course i learned a lot..but... i need to spend a lot time for more input!
Very nice course on sound design. Even if you're not using live, there is a lot of useful tips and tricks that can be applied in any daw.
Having transitioned from another DAW to Ableton, this course has opened up an infinite possible directions for my future productions. Clearly explained and easy to understand, Timo shares his experience of many different areas that will surely help improve your originality and experimental inspiration, thoroughly enjoyed the course.

Not a bad course, but found many of the examples lacking depth. I wish more detail would have been explained in the examples.
Very impressive and professional. Takes it to another level. Covers all aspects of sound design.
Ableton live makes it easy to layer different sounds and create something new and fresh to add to the mix. Good tutorial.
More of this guy please! Great teaching style. Not boring and digs deep into Ableton. I like where he goes with it and how he teaches his valuable tricks. I must say I'm a big fan.
Very interesting and different approach to get to the own sound.
I earmarked a lot of chapters in this course, it has so many little gems in it. Timo has a very relaxed way of explaining his workflow and techniques.
I have learned a great deal of sound design technics with this one tutorial, I am already putting some of them to use. Very inspiring, Thank You Timo Preece for sharing your knowledge in a very concise and simple way.
One of the best courses I've done. Ever wondered how the top producers come up with all their weird/wonderful sounds? Timo shows you how with some excellent, adaptable techniques. 5*
