How to make Agoria 'Les Violons Ivres' arpeggiator in DRC

Published on  

When considering the geography of modern electronic dance music in Europe, If Germany pitches the tents of techno, then it’s nextdoor neighbour France is where house calls home. There is a staggering amount of big name DJ’s and artists, proudly flying the french flag all over the world: David Guetta, Bob Sinclar, Justice, Martin Solveig, oh and a little known parisian pair of robots, who go by the name of Daft Punk!

Citing Laurent Garnier, another heavyweight of the French house scene, as a source of inspiration, our chosen artist this episode is ‘Agoria’ with his 2006 track ‘Les Violons Ivres’ from the album ‘The Green Armchair’.

Whilst the standout feature/element of the track is the glorious string section, our tutorial focuses on recreating the arpeggiated bass sound, which rhythmically punctuates the orchestral proceedings.

As part of the tutorial, Lucas shows the full effects processing chain, which includes our very own DLYM Delay Modulator plugin. DLYM is available from our website for free; click here to download your copy now!

Also, click here to download the free Ableton Live project for this track, which contains the full effects rack pre-built for your convenience!

France music and dance music,
