Tascam US-200 audio interface
We use an audio interface for just about everything in Ableton. Before we even log in and open the software, there a re a few things you should know. Click the video or open it in a new window.
Now that you know how to use the audio interface, set Abelton's preferences to that you can hear from your headphones or monitors as well as record audio and MIDI at optimal settings. Click here to open a new window. Take the quiz at the end of the video.
In this lesson, you'l learn about the ever-helpful Info View window. You'll also learn how to open and close windows to change your work environment. Then we'll add an instrument to a track, set the metronome and record a few clips. No quiz for this lesson, but you do have to create a file called "First Clips" watch the video to find out how.
Edit MIDI Clips
Building on the last lesson, we tweak some of the MIDI clips you made. Click here for the video in a new window.
