Producing a Future Bass track from start to finish inspired by artists like Flume, San Holo, Cashmere Cat, Odesza

Required:

  • Basic understanding of using Ableton (like loading files, creating MIDI clips, loading instruments)
  • Ableton Live 9.2 Standard (or higher)
  • VST: NI Massive (1.3xx or higher)
  • no other 3rd party plugins needed (SERUM would be optional)


The course will take around 5+ hours and walk you through:

  • Idea generation (first in Session View, later we switch to Arrangement View)
  • Writing powerful Future Bass chords and advanced MIDI writing techniques
  • Writing fat and powerful drums
  • Writing melodies
  • Sound Design (with NI Massive – and optional with Operator and Serum)
  • Making vocal chops and glides
  • Creating chord slides, glides, pitch effects, LFO shapes and techniques, frequency shiftings
  • Filtering, EQing, Vibrato, Envelope shaping
  • Layering and sound stacking
  • Creating crazy little fills and breaks for huge drops
  • Creating Future Bass arpeggios and melodies
  • Adding sphere with resampling and reversing sounds
  • Creative arrangement (taking your 8 Bar loops and turning them into a full song)
  • Mixing: We are completely mixing the track using techniques like “Frequency Masking”, Mid-Side mixing, and many more
  • Mastering: in the end we are fully mastering the track with a custom Ableton effect rack chain.
  • Bonus: Serum sound designs, more vocal chops, ..
