Trance Kick, Bass & Acid Tutorial

This is another really good AM tutorial. It's very detailed yet easy to understand and follow. The end result is great sounding acids.

Looks good

Been using mostly bought drum samples, but wanted to be able to reliably produce my own tracks. Havent gone through the whole thing, but what I’ve viewed so far seems just like what I needed.

Trance kick bass acid tutorial

Brilliant tutorial. Very easy to follow. A great video to have as a reference and refresh. Cheers Alan.

Stuart James
Great Tutorial

This has been a great tutorial. It has given me new ways to be extra clinical when looking to improve the groove of my tracks and new ways to experiment with layering different acid sounds to create more interesting, complex sounding material. I highly recommend Allan and looking forward to learning more from him.

Rob Binner
Great tutorial!

Perfect step to step tutorial about the design and mixing of your kick, bass & acid. My kick punches soo much harder now and the (sub) bass fit’s much better in my mix after watching this. Thx again Allan!
