I found the tutorial to be very in depth than others i've seen. So far i've learnt some new tips although some of the videos are a little short but still very good stuff. Is there any other more in depth videos you might have. Thanks.

The music is way to soft behind the instruction..
not quite as slic and to the point as the logic series.
Tends to mumble a bit.
otherwise great - good way to learn...

I purchased this tutorial to learn Ableton Live. I have purchased 3 other tutorials from macprovideo.com (logic 7 and 8 and ESX24 advanced concepts) and I loved them. Unfortunately the Ableton Live tutorial was less than I expected compared to the logic tutorials. I was hoping to get more out of it about performance, the teacher seemed to be rehashing the same simple concepts over and over and never really got to the real concepts about controlling live in and live performance setting, the basic were covered and thats about it. The quality of the videos are excellent, the content about average, I am hoping that I'll be able to download more about ableton and how to use it in a live setting.

Always love your tutorials, how ever I find myself falling asleep to the ones with english accents, I end up skipping the ableton live lessons simply because i feel its dragging on, long pauses, sluring of words.
Maybe its the radio producer in me, but that voice over is some what a drag. Thanks again. As asked feed back good or bad.

Very useful tutorial. I am new to live, and had some problems to use it. Ableton made a great job in usability, but the complexity and features of the software need to be handled. If you watch the whole tutorial you know almost everything about live 6. The structure of the video is very good. You can find the right film for your problem very often.
On my wishlist is a tutorial about producing electronic music with ableton with an special chapter about using live with reason. That would be great. With live and reason you got everything you need to make really innovative music.
I hope there will be an update for the tutorial for live 7.

As a Systems Engineer, I touch alot of technology, and I know how frustrating it can be to stay abreast of all the different technologies; and I've tried many. Your video courses are both outstanding AND convenient. I find that they fit very comfortably into my busy schedule and continue to pique my curiosity with all these new little things I learn. I'm very impressed with your series, but Martin's style of teaching is excellent. It's just too bad he doesn't have a sense of humor ! (Just teasing, sir ! )
I have some other videos to view as well, so I'll write up some reviews of those as well afterwards. Thank you again.

I thought the instructional video for Ableton 6 was very good. Everything was instructed very methodically. Everything flowed extremely well. This video enabled me to learn the system without reading the entire book. Very good job.

The tutorial started out great and clearly the tutor is enthusiastic about the application.
As the tutorial went into greater detail about certain functions, the clips he chose to use could have been better at demonstrating the desired effect. Some of the audio sounds he manipulated were too abstract to see how they would fit in musically with a typical composition of popular music.
Overall it was excellent and unlocked the application for me. Thank you and I will use your service with other applications.
