About the Course

From the Moog analog synthesizers in the 1960s to the contemporary usage of computers, performance controllers, and mobile devices, Electronic Digital Instruments (EDIs) have long been capable of offering artists a new range of musical expression. In this one-of-a-kind course, you'll learn the essential skills you need to perform on an EDI. Your instructor is EDI musician and Berklee College of Music's Electronic Production and Design professor Rishabh Rajan. He will take you through the basics of EDI performance and give you pointers on how to build an arrangement on your EDI. Whether you have just ordered your first pad-controller or have already been experimenting with electronic music, this class will teach you the basics of performing and arranging on the EDI. You will start by learning how to build drum beats and read drum notation. Then you will create bass lines and harmonic accompaniment. Finally, you will learn how to live loop all of these elements and perform an arrangement for a live audience....

Great course to move onto once Ableton Live fundamentals are known

Great course, I actually learned in this course. Despite some experience in music, live looping and electronic music live using Ableton remained a mystery to me but because of this course and another course by Ms. Barra I did earlier made me understand the basics and now I can get going on my own. Thank you for such an amazing course.

I would like give one suggestion. The peer review system doesn't always work and while some weight may be assigned to peer evaluations some portion of the grade must be with the teachers or the teaching assistants. This is important or quality assurance of grading that students received. Also I couldn't find anywhere to challenge the grade I received when I first submitted the assignment because someone randomly graded me with minimum points and no comments / justification whatsoever. This should be addressed.

It´s a good course, but I think it´s to expensive, short and I expected more.
