Allan Morrow – Ableton 10 Trance Plucks Tutorial [Audio Sample]
Welcome to the next episode in the Ableton Live series were ill be making a Trance track from scratch!
In this episode, ill be going over the intro Trance plucks, Tension plucks, Call & Response & more!
Intro plucks are a great way to keep your intros from sounding repetitive and stagnant. They create tension, movement and uniqueness to your track, and can be used to help build the track.
In this tutorial, I’m going to be going over every element and the reasoning behind all of my decisions, so that you have a full understanding of what I am doing and why.
I’ll also be showing you some great tips for speeding up your workflow and showing you how to sit your sounds nicely in the mix!
“Creating call and response plucks will keep your intros interesting while creating emotion and harmony.”
There is no set way to produce music, and you are always going to come up against issues and creative blocks. In these tutorials, there are no pre-planned sounds, and everything is done in real-time so that you get to see any problems that come up and how to overcome them.
This is a much better way to learn than watching sounds that already fit, fall right in to place. We all know that is not how producing music works in the real world! Watching in real-time will equip you with the skills and understanding of how to overcome any particular issues that arise. It will show you different ways to tackle it so you don’t quit and instead come out of the studio with completed projects.

Simple and to the point. As always a very organic session rather than wheeling out pre-made content. Really enjoying your Ableton content Allan
Allan's tutorials have always been a great resource for getting in to Trance music production. I feel he has a solid understanding of the mechanics and nuances of music production that seems to be a bit of a mystery in terms of elevating your productions to the next level. I think Allan is a great teacher and coupled with him being a well-renowned producer and DJ, there's nothing to lose grabbing a few of his courses.
Allan Morrow is the man for tutorials within the first 6mins of the tutorial you have learnt something new. Always easy to follow something for everyone of all levels.
I'm a massive fan of plucks in trance music, they can completely change sections with such little content, create drive and set the tone. This tutorial goes into incredible depth regarding placement, building simple patterns and finding things that work to tailored needs. With practical and very simple suggestions throughout it was perfect for a newbie like myself. However as with all 5 in the series as things click in my head I return and take even more away from it. Have watched a couple of times already and made leaps in this area. Really great tutorial, probably one of my favorite from the series (only due to the topic covered, they all rock!) One happy customer, thanks Allan :)
