Music Protest Music Theory Concepts on the Ableton Piano Roll TUTORIAL
Getting to know where scales and chords come from is the starting point for most musicians and producers. This course demonstrates everything you need to know about fundamental chord/scale relationships. First, the course explains these concepts in a clear explanation-based set of lessons. Then, this course demonstrates these concepts on the Ableton piano roll (the built-in MIDI editor inside Ableton).
The course teaches how major and minor scales are derived, relative major and minor scales, using Roman numerals, arpeggios and even some common chord progressions. However, we’ll also see how Ableton’s MIDI devices can be used to create unusual arpeggiator patterns, create chords from single notes and constrain all MIDI to a single key (using the Scale MIDI device). This course is intended for Ableton users, but the topics relate to music theory just as much. If you’re wanting to get under the hood with chords and scales in Ableton, this course will light the way 🙂
