How to make a house beat in 10 minutes in Ableton Live

Working under a time constraint when making music can be a great way to hone your workflow and build confidence in your creative decisions.

In the video below, we took this idea to the test by constructing a deep house track in under 10 minutes.

Though we were definitely fighting against the clock towards the end, our process should give you a firsthand look into the basics of creating house drum patterns, basslines, and chord progressions. If you liked any of the sounds we used in our track, they’re all available in this Collection.

What other genres do you want to see us tackle in 10 minutes or less? Do you want to see us work in a different DAW? Let us know in the comments below.
