Learn to create a powerful Hard Trance Kick & Bass

Welcome to this Hard Trance Kick & Bass tutorial!

Getting a Hard Trance Kick & Bass sounding right can be tricky as if it’s not done correctly, it can very easily border on the line of sounding amateur and lack fullness and richness to the sounds. You want it punching hard but also retain that warmth and rawness without it sounding too clinical.

In this tutorial, I will show you how I create a Hard Trance Kick & Bass from scratch. I’ll be going through each layer in a great amount of detail, and explaining the processing and thought process behind everything I do in real-time (nothing pre-planned, so you get to see everything!)

I’ll show you how to create the bass sounds and patterns from scratch so that you have a solid understanding of each of the bass layers and how they compliment each other.

Check below for a full in-depth list of everything I go over. This is not an overview! This is every part of the kick and bass in great detail! 

The video covers:

Choosing the right sounding Kick & processing it for that Hard Trance sound. (Characteristics of Kick and processing all explained).

Creating your unique bass pattern.

Creating your bass layer sounds from scratch.

Understanding the characteristics of the bass layers and their job within the bass.

Each layer created in real-time so you can see the full process, including any issues that may arise.

Tuning your Kick and choosing a bass key

A complete understanding of the thought process behind everything that I do and why.

Hard Trance Kick and Bass - Boom!!

Yet another excellent tutorial but this time on a genre I'm very keen to develop my skills on! This kick & bass tutorial is just what you need to start production of a banging hard trance tune. Again Allan goes through the process step by step and I must emphasise even if you have used one of his other kick and bass tutorials you will still learn new skillls from this video. Looking forward to more hard trance tutorials for breakdowns, leads, arrangement etc.

Hard trance kick n bass tutorial review

I really liked the way that Allan chose sounds in the session from a selection of sounds available for the tutorial.
The explanation is very clear on what needs to be achieved and being able to watch it offline is massive bonus.
I normally produce frenchcore and terror but saw AM Studios and thought I'd have a play. Within one week of starting the tutorial I have built a whole track around the kick bass.

Really impressed with the quality of the video also.
