Sonic Academy welcomes back Techno legend Christian Vance for an all-new Ableton based 'How To Make' course and this time he's taking a no-nonsense approach by building a driving, energetic Big Room Techno track.
With just five main elements - kick, bass, synth, an 808 kit and a drum loop Christian builds this track from scratch, and as with all of his tutorials he utilises Ableton's racks to modulate and manipulate the different sounds so there's a constant flow of frequencies, velocities, delays and reverbs to keep the track moving, interesting and energetic.
Unlike most other club tracks there are no specific breakdowns, build-ups and drops in this track, however with slick use of filter automation Christian cleverly manages to create those 'hands-in-the-air' moments in this driving, brooding classic.
Another super accessible course for all abilities from a true professional.
