Allan Morrow – Ableton 10 Trance Plucks Tutorial [Audio Sample]
Welcome to the next episode in the Ableton Live series where 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.

I really liked this tutorial, so much useful information, I really appreciate the tips about writing pluck lines and so on. I just would like to suggest that the tutorials have subtitle for us that dont have english as native language. I miss some points in the tutorial because the language barrier. Even a tool like youtubes automatic translator would help a lot. But anyway, I learned so much from it. Keep up the great work!
If you like me struggle to find ideas on what to use or sometimes can't find what works well and spend heaps of time before getting it right for intro plucks then this tutorial will surely help you a lot by giving you lots of great tips and things you can try with your plucks and what to look out for. As always, worth the money, even if you already have some knowledge.
Even if you think you know what you're doing i would still say check these tutorials out. Makes so much sense and helping so much .
