Deep House Arpeggiated Chord Pattern Generator in Ableton Live

Hi, there. My name's Ski Oakenfull; I'm aCourse Developer and Tutor, here at PointBlank Online Music College. I alsorun my own label, Primaudial Records. Over the years, I've had releaseson labels like BBE, Talkin Out, Ministry Of Sound, and Trolic Soul. I'm heretoday to give you little tutorial on Ableton Live, which is one ofthe subjects I teach, here at the college. You can get loads more free contentfrom the school's website, which is PointBlankOnline . Just go tothe free courses section. Taking inspiration from Deep House Don, Jimpster,I'm going to combine

there of the great Ableton MIDI devices tocreate an arpeggiated chord pattern generator. I hope you enjoy it. We're going to see how we can create an arpeggiatedchord pattern generator. You might be wondering what thatis, so I'm going to play an example. The example I've got is a Jimpstertrack. It's from one of his recent Free Range compilations. It's the firsttrack, it's called Inside the Loop, and I've taken the section that'sgot this apeggiated chord sound, I've looped it up, and I'm going toplay that to you now. Here it

is. It's a great sound. It's kind of obviouslygot some delay, some reverb on, it's quite washy, and it kind of ridesover the rhythm. It's also going to cross the rhythm, so it's not startingon the one. I'll just give you another quick play of that now. What I'vedone is also taken the beat from that track start. I've just kind of loopedthat off and I've added another beat over the top, as well, just so we cansee if we can get something, not exactly the same, but a similar kind of vibeto it. The first thing is going to do is drag overa sound so we can establish

what key were in. I'm going to that now. Thisis one I created earlier, it's on an analog. Here we go. I'm going todrag that over and listen to the sound. I'm also going to drag over thislittle virtual keyboard so you can see the notes I'm playing. I'm just goingto play the original loop again. Just kind of using my ears, I can hearthat this is in D, D Minor, and we're using the Pentatonic notes. If Iplay these notes over the top they all kind of fit. I don't know what kindof combination inaudible: 02:58 using, but I wonder if we can createa similar kind of vibe, but

using some of the devices in Ableton. I also got some brilliant MIDI effects whichwe can use, and I'm going to use three of them: One is the Arpeggiator,one is a Chord device, and one is the Scale device. The first thing we'regoing to do is get the Chord device, and I'm going to drag that beforemy sound. I want to just create a minor chord, a minor triad, and a minor triadis D, F and A, these three notes. I'm going to create that with a Chorddevice. We're going to go from the D, were going to go up three semitones,1, 2, 3; I'm going to do that

now, and then were going to go up 4, 5, 6,7. You can see that if I just hit one note, we're having a whole chord sounding.That's really cool, but if we go up the scale, you can see that somekind of undesirable notes, notes that aren't actually in the scale ofD Minor. We can sort that out by dragging the Scale device afterward. If weset the scale to be D Minor, it will basically eliminate all the notes thataren't in D Minor. I'm actually going to drag over one of the presets. I'mjust going to delete this and drag over C Minor. I'm going to set the bassto D, there we go. It's much
