This is literally the first Ableton Live tutorial I created. I did this back in 2009 as a way to explain Ableton Live to producers and beatmakers that were coming from hardware sequencers.
Many of us were used to pattern based sequencing like the MPC, ASR, or MV8000, so the whole linear layout of a DAW was not really the workflow we were used to.
The Session View is why I fell in love with Ableton Live, it brought the pattern based workflow to a new level because you could be super flexible, each clip could have it’s own length and you could try all types of arrangements.
To this day I’m still a 99% Session View guy, I love it, and this was my first video trying to explain how dope I think it is.
