This Podcast is for anyone who is interested in Ableton Live. Whether you’re a pro or just getting started, there’s something for all. I talk to lots of different Ableton user’s who I think are using the program in a cool unique way. Don’t worry if you’re not a pro, we’re all finding our way together. My goal is that each episode helps each one of us discover new things about Ableton, and inspire us to continue creating our best work yet! -Kevin Swartwood, Host
