Creative Drums

Out of inspiration for techno drum patterns?

Use the Max for Live Mono-Sequencer which comes standard with your Ableton Live set-up.

Create 4 tracks:

  1. One for Kick drum: load a drum rack full of kick samples
  2. One for Snares: load a drum rack full of snare samples
  3. One for Hihats: load a drum rack full of hihat samples
  4. One for Percussion: load a drum rack full of percussion samples

On each of the tracks you add the Mono-Sequencer Max for Live device.

Randomise on the pitch and octave of each tracks mono-sequencer and click PLAY.

A cool beat will pop-out.

To make it maybe less experimental unclick the “blue bars” at the bottom of the mono-seuqencer to indicate which of the steps must be played by the sequencer.

Enjoy!
