In the latest video from Point Blank, DJ Ravine and Saytek show you the basics of starting a track in Ableton live.

In the video, Saytek focuses on tools that are freely available to demonstrate how to start a track. Using edited sample packs, he begins with the kick, before moving to hi-hats and claps from the built-in core instruments in Ableton, as well as the bassline. From there he completes his basic loop with a synth lead and shows some basic elements of creating tension by dropping sections in and out of the track.

To celebrate the holiday season, Point Blank is currently offering 25% off all online courses and 30% off Los Angeles courses until December 31.
