    Just purchased the Trance from the Core Album. What can I say, OMG!!! It´s an outstanding, bass worshipping, danceable party album. I´m really impressed!!! And it is a big joy to hear something on that album from Feyra Bass and Rivonia Sheiman, even so two tracks from Karl and the one of Mister Fork. It´s really a joy to listen. Hope I´ll get end of the year more time to spend on making music..

    rev.19 And all the other tracks are great too, just wanted to mention the ones specially... ;-) I know, it got really silent around me, but I had a lot of issues to solve this year and I´ll move end of the year to a location where I can make music without disturbing anyone. But I´ve been all the time with You all!

    Ah okay so basically you get your set of sounds together the way you want to hear them and then practice with the sounds a couple times to get an idea of flow. Thanks much.

    i just have trouble with a large part of the tutorials that people seem to say turn up this , and a little of that ,
    but i havent heard many guys explain what the parameters do exactly . Its the same if im just fiddling around on lets say operator , or analog or so ,
    i mean yes i can hear difference when turning most off the buttons but i dont know what to combine with what to get a specific sound .

    Yea I know what your saying and I had this same problem. Check out Nick's Tutorials (nickstutorials.com). He gets as in depth as anyone I've seen on the ABleton Live synths: Analog, Operator, Sampler. He goes over every single parameter and explains in detail with clear articulation what everything does.

    I would suggest that you start by learning Subtractive Synthesis as that should give you a good idea of how synths work at a fairly basic level. Live's Analog synth is a subtractive synth so you could watch his Analog series first. Another thing to note is that your understanding of ADSR (Attach, Decay, Sustain, Release), envelopes, and LFO will be crucial to your beginning of synthesis and sound design. These will all make sense as you watch more of the videos and work with them in Live as well.

    After you get a good grip on Subtractive Synthesis in Analog, it would be a good idea to move on to the next common form of snythesis: FM Synthesis (Frequency Modulation) which is best displayed on Live's Operator. Although on Operator you can also use its operators in a Subtractive synthesis way. Again, Nick gets in depth on Operator, FM, in his series. Now Tom does a great job in his tutorials, but I'm just suggesting Nick's tutorials as another supplement.

    As far as drum sound design: I found Quantize Courses: Kick Drum sound design to be the most help. Quantizecourses.com
    After watching those tutorials you'll have a great understanding of layering massive drum sounds. In all honesty the sounds you want to create are a combination of a punchy kick drum and a huge sub bass tail- you should easily have a good understanding in this area after watching. Here's another tutorial that I like on youtube which talks about how to create your own Kick in Operator:

    even worse with the rest of the tools . for instance , tension or analog and the other stuff thats in ableton i havent even touched because i dont know what to use what for , and how to use it . :blush:

    Honestly, I would stick to just Analog right now until you get the basics of Subtractive Synthesis down. After that apply your knowledge of Subtractive on Operator. Then venture into FM synthesis on Operator which in my opinion give some of the best sounds. Also, don't sleep on Sampler. Sampler is a synthesizer and is capable of doing Grainular synthesis which is pretty awesome in its own right. Sampler is also amazing for your drum sounds. I would hold off on Tension, Collision, Electric until you have a better understanding of the basics. I'm just starting to venture off into some of these other areas and it takes time so don't give up!

Why Producing In-The-Box May Be Holding You Back

Being able to make a fully-fledged song on nothing more than a consumer laptop and a decent pair of headphones is a truly amazing representation of how technology has progressed over the last two decades.

It’s cheaper, faster, and easier. The immense joy of musical creation is no longer a luxury reserved for those with money. Instead, it’s readily available for any person willing to dedicate the time and patience.

But this advancement and opportunity comes with a few caveats, one of which is that the music creation process in the eyes of a bedroom producer has been flipped upside down, chopped-up, and compressed into one holistic task.

Is this a bad thing? No. Not at first look, at least. Every producer has a different workflow, and in my opinion, anyone who stays in the game long enough climbs out of the ruts and moves past difficulties in that area. 

Despite this, there is a problem that many developing bedroom producers encounter. The problem of frustration: not being able to finish tracks, taking too long to finish them, or trying to grasp at the enjoyment that you once felt when creating music. This sense of frustration generally has more than one cause, and this article probably won’t fix it, but it may help some of you.
