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:
- One for Kick drum: load a drum rack full of kick samples
- One for Snares: load a drum rack full of snare samples
- One for Hihats: load a drum rack full of hihat samples
- 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.
