Besides working on your basic production skills, we’ll also go more in depth with Music theory for Producers, Mixing/Mastering and Synthesis/Sound-design. A good understanding of these subjects is essential if you want your music to stand out.
Music theory for Producers will teach you about scales, melody, rhythm and chords in a way that’s relevant to electronic music producers. Understanding these basic concepts will help you create throbbing bass lines, banging beats and flowing chord progressions.
Whether you use synthesis to create sounds from scratch, or to transform existing presets to your taste, knowledge of synthesis will help you create a unique and recognizable signature. Synthesis/Sound-design will give you a firm grasp of the most common synthesis methods, and apply this in a hands-on way to a wide range of popular software synths. Furthermore, we’ll take a broader look at sound-design and learn about advanced use of effects and editing techniques.
When you have all the elements for your track and are happy with the structure, it’s time for Mixing. You’ll learn the basics of compression, EQ and reverb, and how to use this to make all your elements work together. When the mix is done, you will then take it to another level with basic but effective Mastering.
During the course you’ll work towards creating a finished track, so that you can experience the whole process. This will help you to finish your own tracks after the course.
