Remaking the Style of Chainsmokers "Closer" using Ableton Live Standard & Massive or Serum

Short Tutorial Version:

What we used:

  • Ableton Live 9 Standard


  • and/or Serum VST

Let's go through some techniques helping you produce tracks like "Closer" only using Massive and/or Serum and Ableton Live 9 Standard.


  1. Constructing a powerful pop-ish drum pattern with Kick, heavy Snare, layered Clap and a bunch of rather standard closed and open hihat samples. We are using sounds from our Deep Premium Vol.2 Sample Pack
  2. Making a solid deep bass in Massive to go along with the main synth
  3. Creating two moody synth layers for the main chord stabs, using either Serum or Massive (we provide two versions
  4. Adding "organic" sounding staccato strings for a "human feel" in the chord stabs
  5. Adding and tweaking a distorted guitar sample as basis of the lead melody pattern, tweaking it in Simpler and using stock Ableton effects.
