Create seamless and powerful transitions…

Welcome to the next episode in the Ableton live series!

In this tutorial ill be going over the transitions and the automation parameters that I use to create seamless and impactful transitions. I’ll be going over every transition in detail and explaining the reasons behind everything I am doing and the reasons why. (the most important part!)

I’ll be showing you the different parameters that you can automate to build and create tension as well as talking to you about common mistakes that can happen when automating element in certain ways.

I’ll also be introducing a snare roll to transitions and talking you through the processing and thoughts behind the sound choices to help you get better sounding snares rolls that fit your track.

During the video ill also be going over clever (and easy to implement) little techniques that you can use to push out even more power in your drops.

The video covers:

Another quality tutorial

I have found this one of the most useful so far - poor transitions and jerky automation made my tracks sound more amateur and thinks to this video they are already sounding better.

Great practical tutorial

This is great, it gets into a lot more detail than most tutorials I've come across. Allan really takes the time to drill down onto things, and isn't afraid to share his little tips and tricks!

Excellent heads up tutorial

More excellent tips in this video. I've bought all 8 of these Ableton build a track tutorials now. Definitely worth having them even for using in the future for that heads up you'll need when stuck in a rut.
