Moreover, SAE Athens offers, for the first time in Greece, a dedicated crash course for Ableton Live.

During this dedicated course, students will learn in depth all the techniques and tools that make Ableton Live such a useful and unique tool for sequencing, production, live performance and DJing. In order to attend the course, students must be experienced with digital audio, MIDI theory and equipment, audio signal processors (EQs, dynamics, effects) and audio desk signal flow. This kind of knowledge can be achieved by successfully attending SAE's Electronic Music Production Course or Audio Engineering Diploma. The course is presented in three classes per week--two theoretical classes and one practical workshop. During the practical workshops, students "get in touch" with the software and are guided by the certified trainer using the school's computers. There is unlimited time available for students to use the school's workstations and studios, in order to proceed with the course's practical exercises.
