Welcome to the Uplifting Trance Kick & Bass tutorial!
Getting a professional Trance Kick & Bass sitting nice and balanced can be tricky at times, and it can also be very frustrating when you don’t know what sounds you should be using, how many layers, what FX to use on them, or how to EQ them etc! The list goes on!
With your Kick and Bass being the foundations of your track it is very important that you get it right or everything else will start to fall apart. In this tutorial, I am going to be guiding you through every single step of the process in an easy to follow way while explaining everything that I am doing, and most importantly why I am doing it. You will be creating amazing bass lines in no time!
I’ll be showing you powerful techniques that will help you get a professional sound so that when you come back to listen to your track in the morning it sounds just as good as you thought it did the night before!

Love this tutorial. Allan brings his lessons down to earth and explains every part of his thought process in an enjoyable and informative way. Invaluable!
I really enjoyed this tutorial, well executed and full of useful hints and tips for achieving that uplifting trance 'bass sound'.
As a seasoned producer myself, I do like to watch others produce to see if there is anything I can pick up, and this tutorial doesn't fail to deliver.
I love the fact that it is unscripted, and that everything that is undertaken is explained in detail.
Really good video demystifing a lot of what makes the kick and bass sit well in the mix. Well worth a watch.
This tutorial is absolutely amazing to start making better bass lines. I also got the Ableton live - kick and bass template from Allan Morrow studio. It’s a great setup that works well with the kick and bass tutorial. If you are serious about making trance music, this is a video you can’t miss!
I tried a few other trance tutorials long ago, they all ended up with a weak and uninspiring sound. Hearing the samples provided, I decided to give this a try. I don't have the synths used in this one, and while I could get them, I used the ones I had on hand. Surprisingly I still got that 'commercial' sound that I was looking for for a long time. If you pay attention to every detail, you will be able to re-create the sound with any synth. Don't skimp on a good sample library either, it will save a lot of time. I'm looking forward to other tutorials from Allan.
