Allan Morrow – Thinking Outside The Box – Episode 003 (Trance Bass Line Special) Video Tutorial

  • Tired of producing in the same way?
  • Tired of using the same FX chains on your sounds?
  • Are you stuck in a loop?
  • Can’t get creative?
  • Watching videos or other producers and thinking “Why did I never try that?”
  • Tired of using generic sounds?
  • Want to create sounds that no one else is?
  • Struggling to stand out amongst the crowd?

“to think differently, unconventionally, or from a new perspective.”

Welcome to the “Thinking Outside The Box” Series! I have started this series to open up peoples minds on how to get creative with your sounds. Although predominantly aimed at Trance sounds, this series can open up the minds of anyone producing any style of genre. If you are picking samples from packs and just throwing them in your tracks why not get creative with them and create your own samples or manipulate them in a way that no one else will of done before?

In this episode, I am concentrating on different bass sounds and opening my mind and getting creative. A lot of you have a creative side inside you it just needs to be unlocked! How many times have you seen producers do something and thought to yourself “Why did I never think of that?”

Watching this series should open your mind to new ways of manipulating sounds to make them your own while also discovering new effects chains and creative ways of standing out as a producer.
