Solid Kick & Bass He’s gotcha 😉

My first purchase from Allan, was very impressed 👌 Easy to understand & follow along with. Now making tight sounding kick & basses for my tracks & also creating my own presets. Will be purchasing more in the future.

Bass and Kick for Ableton - Simply Awesome

It's the first course for trance production that I have found that someone actually goes through the full process of basslines and kicks, making the track from scratch and no pre planned video. Over 2 hours long and already my knowledge and skills have improved. Along with Allan's Ableton template, this course is a must have in my opinion. Highly recommended.

Kick & Bass Review

Allan goes through the fine specifics of EVERYTHING in this video. Great to see it being done in real time also! A great tutorial.

Kick & Bass

The video is very helpful and I have progressed since watching it. I was stuck at choosing which midi points to use for my bass. Although I use Cubase I have still been able to implement what Aaron demonstrates although he uses a different DAW.

It’s not just the videos though that helps, Aaron will communicate with you and make suggestions to help point you in the right direction.

Overall he’s a top lad and the videos really do help.


Everything is explained and you will definitely gain a lot of knowledge from watching this. Highly Recommended
