What you you will learn from this course
After having taken this class, you'll have seen a complete production process first hand, starting from nothing and working through all the different important stages of the production process, from start to finish. The track is inspired by artists like Amelie Lens, Adam Beyer, Richie Hawtin, Keith Carnal, Charlotte de Witte and labels like Drumcode.
Part 1: Setup & Introduction
In this part we are setting up Ableton, downloading the files, talking about the general workflow and getting started.
Part 2: Building the basics (Arrangement View)
In this part we are starting with the production of a drum pattern, adding kicks, claps, high hats and other percussion elements. We then tweak those sounds to taste and add effects to make them sit nicely together. We're also adding instruments or much rather our main synths. Then, we're designing effects to support the general atmosphere of the track.
Part 3: Putting it together
This part is focussed on the track arrangement. We are discussing how to set up a typical club arrangement, where to add tiny and longer break parts, how to develop tension and when and how to release it. We're producing intro and build-up parts, the arrangement towards our main drop and the developments after the main drop as well as the outro.
Part 4: Working on transitions
This section is focussed on fine-tuning the arrangement, we are trying to get our transitions as natural and smooth as possible, making use of lots of tricks and effects along the way.
Part 5: Finalizing - Mixing and Mastering
In this finalizing part we are cleaning up our project to prepare it for our mixing stage. The mixing stage is one of the most important steps before mastering, so we are trying to get everything as clean and well organized as possible. We are talking about different mixing techniques in this part too. Then we are entering the mastering stage, setting up a complete mastering chain using only Ableton built-in effects and discussing why we are choosing the elements in that way.
Part 6: Bonus videos
This section contains an Ableton-refresher for everybody feeling that its been a while since their last Ableton session. These bonus sessions are great to get back into the game. Also, we are going to add all bonus sessions that are being made based on requests by the users.
