In today's music, we hear so many more sounds than could ever be produced with traditional instruments. Whether you listen to Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop, EDM, movie soundtracks, or even country, almost all music today is produced and consumed using some sort of software. If you've ever wanted to create your own beats, your own sounds, or your own style, or just record something of your own, OontzKids DJ Academy has just the class for you - our all new summer camp for producing and performing music with Ableton Live! In this class, we'll learn the fundamentals on software-based virtual instruments. We'll learn how to program and play these instruments, as well as how to record, save, modify, loop, sample, and build a unique live performance of your own customized tracks for an audience. All equipment will be provided including computers, software, synth plugins, MIDI controllers, speakers, and headphones.
