Rominimal Ableton (Dark): 5 Steps to create custom abstract fragment sounds with any sample

►► Download the Free Ableton Live Ro-minimal Kick Rack inspired by Petre inspirescu, Barac and so on to quickly kick off your next track with a deep rolling kick:


So a couple of days ago I listened to some more darker kinds of rominimal tracks and I found they often have some random triggered short bursts of sounds, often times weird texture sounds.

Now what I found is, that those sounds and tracks often live by a lot of delays echos and so on.

So I went on and experimented with a simple clap layer a little bit with some delays, and some soundtoys plugins and Ableton’s stock plugin and yeah in this video I break down the simple steps you can take to create a similar result like I did and best of all, you can use it as a framework and than experiment with samples of your choice so you don’t need to use samples for that.
