Here at Liveschool we’ve long being trying to find a better way to schedule the Liveschool course dates. We’ve tried all sort of tricks in iCal, Trello and other scheduling software, but it’s never quite worked the way we wanted it to.

We were at our wit’s end, then had an epiphany that the answer was staring us in the face all along – we could create a calendar in Ableton Live! Our biggest unsolved problem with other software was not being able to shift a group of dates (which for us was a course) around at once. Using the session view in Ableton Live, we overcame this hurdle by making each group of dates (each course) a number of same coloured clips, which we could then easily highlight and drag to different dates to see how the courses all best fitted together. Sounds simple, but surprisingly no other software could do this (if you know of one, let us know in the comments below).

Download the Live Set to check out how we did it and if you want to use it as a calendar yourself, just delete the Produce Music clips and you’ve got yourself a 2014 calendar template – even the public holidays are marked in!
