Best 9 Ableton Live Remakes and Templates you can´t miss in 2018

Posted by Esteban Miranda on

Are you learning Music Production? Do you want to know how today's hit songs are made?

Today with Top Music Arts we bring you our list of the Best 9 Ableton Live 10 Remakes and Templates of 2018 you just can´t miss. If you are new to Ableton and the Music Production path, you may get lost in the way of the whole creative process of composing.

With Templates and Remakes, you not only can see how other successful producers made their hits but also you can use them to make your own new compositions or help you come up with your own new sounds. In addition to that, it´s a great way to learn a lot about mixing techniques, how to use synths, and maybe even as a source of inspiration.

Think of them as presets in your favorite Vst, they help you get used to it a lot faster than learning what each knob and feature does.

Trying to recreate any existing sound you like is a great way to practice!


So today we have our pick for the ones we´ve found most useful and most liked by the people. With a quick review of each one.

Let´s start…

 

Fisher - Losing it

 

 
We have our previous article about Fisher – Losing it and this Remake, where you can find more details about this very innovative song and how to make it, by clicking Here.

The Percussive and Rhythm elements of this song are really remarkable. You should notice the way they alone, one by one, don´t seem like they are doing much really; but played together they all make perfect sense! If you like Tech house, you should check it.

 

Template for Ableton Live 10, and Sylenth3. All the Presets are included for FL Studio and other DAW. With Tech House Style samples for beginners with rhythm.

Undoubtedly the most played track of Tomorrowland 2018!  

Useful things to have in mind about this and every reference song

  • This Tech House song was first released on July the 13th of 2018.
  • Has a 125 bpm
  • It´s in the Key of G Major.
  • Has a total time length of 6:40.


We´re going to be talking about this features of each remake and let me tell you why they are worth mentioning:

The Style (or genre) and Release Date, because it´s always good to learn the difference between genres, and if your reference is outdated, a producer needs to be aware of what people are listening. After all, we make music for them!

The Bpm is useful because it´s another key element that marks each style, and it´s most important to have in mind when you are starting a composition.

The Key the song belongs to is good to know because, when you know the tonality the song is in, you can figure out the chords and melodies a lot faster.

And finally, the Time Length, because you should notice if your song is too long or too short for today's music standards.
