It's a classic on steroids: the ultimate house production companion.

Every paragraph from the original book has been ported into one beautiful looking, easy to use App, a scrollable, fully indexed reference manual that covers all aspects of making house music - from creating beats to programming basslines, from arrangement to production, mixing and mastering.

  • Song arrangements are offered with the original tracks included.
  • A unique new section showcases what different effects do.
  • A 'perfect mix' table shows how good - and bad - mixes sound.
  • House beats are broken down into their constituent elements and then rebuilt, step by step.
No stone has been left unturned to cover the production of house - and the tools needed - in a level of detail never before seen.
With every page lovingly rendered to this new format, this is an App that will be dipped into time and again; an essential studio companion.

Creating Percussion Loops

In this Ableton Live Tutorial, we take a look at how to rearrange some percussive loops that come with 3rd party sample packs.

The video focuses on the use of Ableton's clip follow actions to randomly generate new percussion sequences. The output is then recorded in to the arrangement view where we can quickly select a loop that matches our track , along with some interesting fills.

This technique can be used on all types of drums, glitch tracks and even bass lines. Ableton Live can record either MIDI or audio tracks in this manner so experiment to see what you can come up with!!

This Ableton Live tutorial is suitable for both production and performance.
