How to Make Drum and Bass (FREE Ableton 10 Project File Included)


Learn how to make drum and bass (in the style of Wilkinson, Sub Focus and Hospital Records) in this drum and bass tutorial.

In this step-by-step drum and bass production tutorial, I ONLY use the stock plugins that come with Ableton Live 10, and you can download it for free and play ’til your little heart’s content – breaking apart my methods and using them yourself.

If you’ve ever wondered how to make music like Wilkinson, Sub Focus, Netsky or other drum and bass artists (like those on labels such as Hospital Records or Ram Records), this will give you an insight into how to achieve similar results.

This isn’t only a tutorial on how to make drum and bass in Ableton Live, though…you can use the same methods in FL Studio or Logic X, to produce your own techno in the style of Wilkinson or Sub Focus.

This tutorial will go through all the steps, including…

  1. Kick selection
  2. Bass creation
  3. Percussion
  4. Chord Progression
  5. Layering
  6. Arrangement tips
  7. Adding sound effects
  8. Vocal processing
  9. Mixing
