    The Producer Bundle was the first online course I’ve ever purchased and I’m super happy I did! The content helped fill in the gaps that were missing from what I’d already learned on my own. The production of the videos is professional and presented in a manner that makes learning fun and easy. I highly recommend any of Warp Academy’s courses!

    (verified owner):

    Would recommend to anyone looking to learn the basics of Ableton and more. Easy to follow curriculum, focused and insightful. Now that I have the fundamentals down, will most certainly be looking at additional offerings from these guys to take my production to the next level. Thank you Warp Academy!

  3. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner):

    This course is hands down the most effective way to immerse yourself in the basics of Ableton, learn the fundamentals and drill down to an understanding of the subtleties. Each segment is presented in the same easy to comprehend format that I’ve come to expect from Warp Academy. The best aspect, and in my opinion, the most valuable, is the ability to review specific areas when you need a refresher; which is great for someone that does not work with Ableton on a daily basis. Excellent all around!

    If you don’t know Live 9 after taking all these great courses, you’re a basket-case ;-)
    Seriously, you get a lot for your money. All high standard material with lots of inside info, which helps you work smarter and faster with Live. Highly recommended!

    (verified owner):

    Great courses at great value. Amazing breadth of videos for beginners, hobbyists and relatively skilled amateurs alike. The short video size makes it easy to watch a lesson, tinker and explore and come back even if you’re quite busy and dont have a lot of time to learn. I’ve learned many below-the-surface ableton tricks in the time ive used it. Very very awesome experience.

    If you were looking for “THE” perfect companion course to “Ableton Live 9 Jumpstart” stop here: you’ll find it.
