Welcome to this Hard Trance Kick & Bass tutorial!

If you have found yourself wanting to create a hard-hitting Hard Trance Kick & Bass but feel that yours are lacking punch then be sure to check out this in-depth tutorial.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to easily make a Hard Trance Gated Kick along with different options you have to suit your style and taste. I’ll be going through each bass layer (Sub bass, Mid Basses, Groove Bass, Bass Transitions/Fills) in a great amount of detail and showing you how to create some layers from scratch. For those not comfortable with sound design ill also be mixing it up with the odd preset and showing you what type of sounds to look out for when it comes to Hard Trance.

Everything is also done in real-time with nothing pre-planned so you get to see the full creation process from sound/sample choice, sound design, bass patterns, processing, effects & mixing.

Just what I needed

This is a great tutorial, and one I desperately needed to watch. Been trying to achieve this kind of bassline for some time (the aggressive mid bass in hard trance), but could never quite get there, until now...
Surprised me how easy Allan made it look, and I've since gone on to make a few such basses with ease to completely transform tracks I've been producing. This really was totally worth the small fee I paid - as with all of Allan's tutorials. You will not be disappointed.
