Rominimal: Use this simple Ableton Stock plugin for layering your rominimal basses, pads, textures

►► Download the Free Ableton Live Ro-minimal Kick Rack here:


Did you ever feel that your ro-minimal track could benefit from some more sounds? Did you ever wanted to layer a rominimal bassline and maybe even make it a bit wider but without destroying the low-end and punch? Or do you want to add another layer to your textures and background sounds?

Well, in this video I show you examples, to all of those scenarios basically from scratch where I use one simple Ableton Stock plugin as the main source to do the layering and that you can use as well for your next track.

In that way you don’t overdo it with adding more and more new elements to clutter up your track in the arrangement but can keep it minimal but still full and complex sounding.
