    Okay, guys got a few more here to get ideas flowing thru your brains

    Ableton Live contains many tools for synthesizing and sculpting drones - here, we’ve reviewed a few of the best tutorials available to send you on your way. To start with, Pyramind instructor Taylor Elsasser uses resonant modeling effect Corpus to shape a sample into a dark drone:



    ollowing the previous drone-making tutorial, Taylor re-creates the process he showed in Reaktor using LIVE's Corpus tool. For those who don't have Reaktor, this is a great way to use LIVE's built in tools to create awesome sounding drones from just about anything.



    The full link to the article is here: https://www.ableton.com/en/blog/drone-tutorials/

    Another bonus for those who really like Reaktor, this is an old Ensemble but very adept at drone and ambient Textures and soundscapes



    This is one of my favorite Synths, and i have used this a lot. Can get some really unique and otherworldy sounds with this. pair this with an iPAD and konkreet performer, or touchAble 3 or liine Lemur and you can perform some serious deep ambient soundscapes

    @SyNtH. As an old time, simple guitar player I never really got into the whole ambient synth thing, just never been my cup of whiskey. But out of curiosity I watched your entire tutorial and can say honestly...it's still not for me. However, listening to you explain your thought processes while using an inordinate amount of tracks, little sounds, techniques, automation's etc. compared to what I have done was interesting & has given me a greater appreciation for the complexity in a piece like this. Of course this comes as no surprise to the rest of you that write in this genre. Just wanted to say kudos on the tutorial & thanks for the insight into the world of a madman! :) Well done!

    Much appreciated dude! :D Im hoping on making another tutorial soon in the future for another new genre/style that i hope to learn in the future or for making D&B drums (which was actually my main genre initially).
