How to write a song in Ableton:(Master Template):
Bass – Part 4
Today I release the 4th part in the process of walking you through my How to write a song in Ableton Live process using the Ableton Master Template & internal effects exclusively. If you haven’t yet watched the first part of writing a song in Ableton, you’ll want to Start Here
My Ableton Master Template is a massive tool I made that gives you all the tools you need to make tunes quickly & easily. Now understand that this isn’t necessarily a walkthrough of the Ableton Master Template as I only planning on using what I need to make a tune, instead of trying to fit every tool into this video. I have a series of videos if you want a detailed walkthrough of the template.
In the video below I share the following:
How to set velocity sensitivity in Ableton’s Sampler instrument
The Velocity settings that react to your midi sensitivity in Ableton’s Sampler is found in the Filter Tab of Sampler. I know that can be a bit confusing for some, so that should help.
I set the velocity sensitivity so I could make my bass part more dynamic by adding loud notes & quieter ones. This gave me the vibe I was going for & helped the song sound not so rushed.
By duplicating the scene I had created, I now have the new Bass & the old one for a bit more flexibility when structuring the song.
Enjoy part 4!
