Keychee Shares Process of Making a Track
Ableton’s new video series Made in Ableton Live follows a range of artists in the process of making a track. Each video focuses on one artist and the different approaches they have to produce, from beat-making and vocal processing to sound design.
Keychee builds up a hard-stepping hit of hip hop-flavored funk using drum layering, automated envelopes, sidechain compression and master effects chains. The end result is a textured, dynamic track layered with rich synth hooks, all created in the box.
Whether it’s handy signal chain shortcuts or inventive ways to route audio, these videos are full of useful insights into some of the many different ways you can make a track.
