Course 3: Bass

With your voice and beats in the batter, we’re going to start adding bass to set a great foundation by building on the root note and learning how to “root” the listener through laying down those fundamental progressions that’ll get them begging for the break. With Ableton and the techniques we show you, even the most complex bass patterns are at your fingertips. On this ride we’ll crack into MIDI, recording in MIDI, quantizing, modulation, finding variations, and tightening that bass. We’ll also delve into Alicia Keys’ voice and sound, take a virtual field trip to Moog, and start considering how you plan on marketing yours.
