Producer Notes 003: Will Sparks - Festival Techno Style in Ableton ("Fake" Rumble & Triplet Drop)


Session 3 of the new YouTube Series with Francois PML called "Producer Notes". Episode 003 analyses and breaks down the style of Australian DJ/Producer known for Melbourne Bounce, Will Sparks. Specifically looking at the massive techno main stage festival sound.

The key lessons from this episode are:

  • “Fake” rumble with reverb on the top kick
  • Bass donks, quick shots and stabs to make it sound fun and interesting
  • Industrial atmo to fill out the track and make it sound wide
  • Percussive, noisy elements with good transients and reverb tales to support atmo
  • "Whiplash” style drop with “Textbook” style Q+A melody patterns
  • Unusual Arrangement idea: an on-grid drop varies with a triplet drop
