10 music production techniques you need to try in FL Studio and Ableton Live

If you’re looking for ways to level up your productions in FL Studio or Ableton Live, you’ve come to the right place.

In the tutorial video above, veteran producers Kaelin Ellis, Max Rewak, Isaac Duarte, and Nick Chen came together to share ten music production tips that span everything from mixing and sound design to sampling and beat making. While FL Studio and Ableton Live are the primary DAWs that are used, many of the concepts can be applied across other DAWs as well.

“This little effect I’m going to show you is about to go a long way,” Kaelin Ellis teases. “Depending on how you want to approach it, it can take you from one moment to, ‘Oh, I can throw this thing on the entire song.'”
