Here are my Ableton Live template where you can watch me go through some of the tracks I have made. I try to explain some of the production decisions and why I have done certain things. The musical style is electronic and revolves mainly around the Trance genre. Still, you should be able to apply some of the tips to other tracks and genres as well.
I have used a lot of different DAWs during the years but Live is what makes me most productive. The reason for that is the fluid workflow, interface and frankly the ease of use.
I also have some basic serum presets you can download for free if you want. I have used them in some of my tracks.
For the actual tutorial videos you will have to scroll further down. First we have downloads of some Ableton Live projects.
Shiny – Free Ableton Live Template
You need Serum and Spire for synths. As for drum samples they are copyrighted so I cant include them in this ableton live template. However you will get a pop-up window where you can replace the samples with something else.
I also use effects from Soundtoys and Dada life but they are easily replaced with built-in effects in Ableton Live such as the saturator and ping pong delay.
For mastering I always use plugins from Fabfilter, but here you can go with the built-in limiter in Live, just make sure you dont push it too hard!
Have fun checking out the project! And let me know if you make something cool!
This track is also available for download if you want to use it as background music. Get it here: Shiny – Royalty Free Music (Free Download)
Trance from Scratch 1 (Youtube Series)
This is the project file from the Youtube Series: Trance from Scratch 1.
You need Serum, Spire and Diva to play this track. Ableton Live 9 Standard is needed as well.
Have fun and hope you at least learned something!
