Allan Morrow – Thinking Outside The Box – Episode 004 (Trance Plucks & Arps Special) [Audio Sample]
***Please listen to the full audio sample to hear the different sections and unique sounds created***
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 Trance Plucks & Arps 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.
Trance Plucks & Arps can really add the final touches to your tracks by filling them out and making them unique and exciting, especially when you can create some nice unique atmosphere & movement to them. In this video tutorial, I will be showing you how to get creative with them, and not just creating a simple layered pluck.

This guy is a plucking magician. So much great content! It really does exactly what it says on the tin. A completely new way of approaching plucks, new ways to get the creative juices flowing using synths. 5 Stars all the way, would definitely recommend!! Cheers Allan
I’ve been struggling with arp progression for ages but this tutorial has really helped! In typical fashion Allan explains in detail how to get round around frustration! Very good tutorial!!
This guy never ceases to amaze with his outstanding knowledge and commitment in showing us the ways of music production. Long may it continue.
Thanks James :)
Allan delivers once again on another fantastic tutorial. His videos are always clear, concise and easy to follow. The part I really took away was how to use Logic Pro's flexpitch feature to be able to take the midi notes from a synth's arpeggiator's sequence and then export as midi and change them as you see fit. So happy that i bought this.
I've bought several tutorial videos here @ AMStudios and it has been very helpfull to discover several techniqes used in a trance production.
I was always struggeling with the build up of a track with plucks and this videao is the way to find that out.
very often tutorials from other producers do not give the total view of a production, but Allan does.
Thanks Allan for sharing the secrets of producing a good trance track.
Greetings from Amsterdam.
