How to make techno in Ableton Live
Starting with a template is a good way to start making tracks because it gives you a framework to start with. As a beginner step it's great because you have a road map of how the entire track can come together.
The alternative is to start with a blank new session and from there figure it out. The problem for newer producers is they never get past 8 or 16 bars of music.
It's easy to make new ideas, it's harder to turn those ideas into fully fleshed out dancefloor ready tracks.
In the video above I cover how I made the rumbly low end in my techno template "afraid" you can find on Abletunes.com.
