I wanted to have a quick go at trying to create the classic “Reese” bass so widely used in and popularised by drum and bass (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out this classic DNB tune for a classic example).
Feel free to share this with other Abletonians, for this is actually a useful feature if you want to share your projects and add a bit of personal info about yourself, write info for a collaborator, do an informative set for a workshop, create a tutorial, etc.

That’s a good question, and I’ve definitely been there: Continue reading On perfectionism→
Concentrating on your work – especially creative work that needs a bit of inspiration – seems to be the hot topic these days, but it’s that for a reason.
The modern man with all his contemporary digital distractions, let alone non-digital ones brought on by life, can get in the way of one’s creative process and gnaw on one’s inspiration.
This can stop the juices from flowing, and certain principles can be of help.
