Techno Kick Rumbler Maker (Ableton Audio Effect Rack)
Minimal Techno (Free Download)
With Techno its all about experimentation and within Techno over, the last 3 decades producers have continually pushed the boundaries of the musical norms. One clear example of this is making bass lines from soaking your kick in reverb a practise which in all music engineering books is frowned upon.
But let's be honest the grey-haired folk who wrote these books have probably never been to a club in their lifes and therefore have never embraced the gut rumbling power this technique can provide.
We at Mind Flux have created an audio effects rack for Ableton that has adapted this power. The rack has a selection of tools that allow you to easily create techno rumbling kick drums that will leave your studio walls shaking. Simply load a kick of your choice and let it roll.

Warped Moog Bass Ableton Instrument Rack
At Mind Flux we always like to find ‘odd” samples and turn them into something completely different by doing this you can ensure that you have something original to work with.
In this example we will be taken Britney Spears “One More Time” vocal and turning it into a raw bass preset. To do this we will be using Native Instruments highly impressive Form.
Ableton Chord Randomiser
The team of nerds at Mind Flux, have put together a gem of a instrument rack. The main sound of the rack is from the ever impressive Moog Minitaur which is a one stop shop for bass.
But using the amazing elements within Ableton it can become so much more. Simply turn the “Warp It” macro to let loose all hell.
How to make an Dark Techno Chord
Sometimes when trying to build an chord progression or chord melody you seem to just jump instinctively for the same chord, for me its the Minor 7th. While I would say this is my and many peoples favourite chord it does end up with your ideas sounding rather similar to everyone else.
So to help breath new life into your stale chord progressions and chord melodies we at Mind Flux have built a chord randomiser which with the selection of over 80 chord variations will output a new chord at the rate and depth of your choice.
How to Make a M/S Splitter
In this latest blog post we are going to be exploring how to create a rusty down right dirty chord that is perfect for Dark Techno. To create this dark techno chord we will be using Ableton’s gargantuan new synth Wavetable as well as a selection of Ableton stock midi and audio effects. Wavetable is the perfect synth for Dark Techno sound design as you have a huge selection of wavetables to choose from and all can be easily manipulated and morphed.
