Learn how to make Progressive House in Ableton Live in the style of Ben Böhmer, Lane 8 and Anjunadeep in this Progressive House tutorial.

In this step-by-step progressive house production tutorial, I (almost) 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 Ben Böhmer, Lane 8 or other progressive house artists (like those on labels such as Anjunadeep), this will give you insights into how to achieve similar results.

Ben Böhmer is known for his beautiful melodic and harmonic compositions, using a combination of orchestral instruments and synths and samples.

His music is emotive and delicate, and that is the vibe I am going to show you how to capture in your own music today.

The record label “Anjunadeep” release melodic progressive house in general, and if you want to get your music released on Anjunadeep, this tutorial will help you.
