Music for Media: Transposing and Grouping Tracks

In the final part of our new series looking at Music For Media, course tutor Kevin Kerrigan looks at transposing multiple clips of your temp track and grouping your channels so you don’t lose track of your project. When composing for film, you can end up with several hundred tracks so it’s important to keep your sessions organised. Kevin also previews the composition he created based on the temp track from the previous videos.

Our Music for Media module is already well established using Logic Pro, but now we’re making it Ableton friendly, with all the videos in this series being taken from the module. While Ableton might not be known for its compositional abilities, we’ll show you how to create professional orchestral soundtracks using the popular DAW. Our Music for Media module, part of our larger Ableton Live Diploma course looks at everything from real-world Case Studies and Projects, as well as explaining the concepts behind sound design, TV, radio and video game composing and much more.

We’ll explain how easy it can be to create alternate mixes for clients, map the tempo of your project to an example track, use Session View for writing to film and also how to work with Surround Sound in Ableton, via a custom-made Max for Live device. All of this and much more is part of our largest Ableton Live Diploma course, which you can learn more about here.
