Good music relies on solid fundamental ideas. In part 1, I write a chord progression, melody, and bassline.
Layering can be difficult to get your head around. We'll look at a few layering techniques while adding a bit extra to the chord and melody leads.
A loop has been made - now it's time to arrange. In this video, I add in some drums and sketch out the basic arrangement.
A dance track is only as good as its buildup. In this video, I show you how to craft a tension-inducing buildup.
There's nothing worse than a breakdown. Part 5 involves adding a few extra sounds to spice things up.
Few people prepare for a mixdown. In this video, I explain the benefits to doing so while preparing the project for mixing.
A good mix starts with good source material, which we've found, but it's always good to clean a few things up.
I share my automation workflow and give the track a quick master for loudness. We're done!
Cheers. I'll get back to you soon.
Hmm... that didn't seem to work. Want to give it another go?
