Remixing Techniques in Ableton Live by Rob Jones

From Producertech Course Director Rob Jones comes this comprehensive course, which will take you through the whole process of creating a Remix in Ableton Live. It begins with the initial importing of stems and ends with detailed editing of the arrangement, showing how the individual elements of the original folk track are skilfully combined into evolving Deep House.
In the two hours of movies, Rob covers all manner of techniques and remixing concepts, including working out the tempo and key, creating catchy basslines and hooks, sampling and resequencing parts, mixing and automating, making epic breakdowns and satisfying drops, and much more.
Accompanying the lessons is a download pack that contains over 50MB of bonus samples, as well as the Live set from the course. All lessons and downloads are available immediately after purchase and ready for streaming 24/7/365.

Module Details

  • 1. Module 1: Importing and Editing Stems
    In this opening module, Rob auditions and imports the stems, then works out the original bpm of the track, before editing and organising the project to create the basic building blocks from which the remix is made.
  • 2. Module 2 Part 1: Creating the Bassline and Groove
    This module starts by making a simple beat, to which various melodic, looped stems are added, which are then analysed and used to work out the key of the song, as well as its groove, from which a bassline is made.
  • 3. Module 2 Part 2: Creating the Bassline and Groove
    This module applies an extracted groove to the bassline to influence its timing and level, as well as using different groove variations on other rhythmic parts to ensure the overall groove is locked down.
  • 4. Module 3: Creating Melodic Hooks and Loops
    In this lesson, Rob continues working with some of the melodic stems, adjusting clip envelopes and applying various effects, to help shape them into workable parts for the track.
  • 5. Module 4 Part 1: Sampling the Organ and Adding Percussion
    Rob begins this lesson by sampling the main organ from the original track and using it to sequence a new melodic phrase, which forms the main motif in the remix. After this, he shows how a looped percussion sample can be recreated using various Drum Rack techniques.
  • 6. Module 4 Part 2: Sampling the Organ and Adding Percussion
    In this module, the recreated percussion parts are edited and processed to work with the groove, and a cabasa stem is also added to the rhythm section.
  • 7. Module 5 Part 1: Arranging the Remix
    This set of 3 lessons sees Rob creating the arrangement, starting off in realtime and then ending with a walkthrough of the final layout.
  • 8. Module 5 Part 2: Arranging the Remix
    This lesson shows how to create a variation section for the main drop and then some techniques for making an epic breakdown.
  • 9. Module 5 Part 3: Arranging the Remix
    In this last module, Rob provides a detailed commentary on the finished arrangement, mentioning any particular areas of interest or parts that have changed in the final arranging stage.
