Sound Design Challenge: Remake of Coyote Kisses Revive - Future Bass ChillTrap Style - using Ableton and NI Massive

Ableton Creativity Music Production Skills

Arrangement, transitions, variations in chords, melody, drums, etc." You're probably familiar with the problem. You have a nice idea for a beat that lasts 8 bars (sometimes 4 or 16 as well).
