Shades of Techno

The best way to use these samples is with your DAW's sample editor, where you can chop up, combine, and manipulate sounds to create new ones. We recommend you select sounds that work well together, for rhythm parts like snares, claps, hi-hats, Kicks, and Toms and combine them with our selection of bass lines and lead instrument loops to create many Techno productions.

The samples will also work for drag and drop loops, great for arranging in Ableton's performance view.

Thank you for your support.

What is Techno Music?

Techno music is an electronic dance music genre that first gained popularity in Detroit in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The name Techno comes from the idea that the music is made by Technology. As technology advances, so does Techno music, although arguably, all genres can benefit from Technology advancements. Instruments and synthesizers most commonly used in Techno are the Roland TB-303 bassline synthesizer and Roland TR-909 the Roland TR-808 drum machine. These instruments featured in early Techno, but still play a role in Techno and a lot of EDM music today due to their unique sound and programmable features.

German electro-pop bands like Kraftwerk are said to be the originators of Techno, however, Techno really took off as a Dance genre in American areas, like New York, Detroit, and Chicago. Techno in America incorporated elements of synth-pop, electro, Hip-Hop, and house music, especially Chicago house.

The Conclusion

Ultimately, the main theme running through all Techno tracks is a futuristic, abstract concept with machine-like rhythms. These concepts link together early German Techno with bands like Kraftwork, to more modern producers and DJs such as Amelie Lens. This futuristic theme is also seen in Techno Sub genres, such as Minimal Techno, Detroit Techno, Acid Techno, and Tech-House.
