A comprehensive and detailed look at how you can mix and master your own electronic music.

We will be mixing and mastering a track from start to finish in this course.

You will get an in-depth, real world view of exactly how to mix and master your own music.

You will learn the art and science behind various types of compression (regular compression, sidechain compression, multiband compression) and some recommended settings that can be used depending on the type of sound you are treating with compression.

You will also learn about various types of EQ treatment, such as regular parametric EQ and Mid-Side EQ. You will learn about how to EQ a wide range of sounds including different drums and percussion (kicks, snares, etc.), different bass sounds, melodic instruments and FX.

You will learn how to use saturation and distortion to add extra harmonics to certain sounds in your mix to make them sound fuller or stand out more above the other instruments.

You will learn how to mix a complex track that consists of more than 10 different bass sounds and more than 10 different drums tracks.

You will see how we can group tracks together and process an entire group of tracks at once.

You will learn how to work with reference tracks to compare your own work with.

You will also learn how to build your own mastering chain and how to master your track so that it will stand up against other professionally produced tracks on the dancefloor.

The style of music produced in this course could be called dubstep, although it features many influences from ambient electronica and drum and bass, especially neuro or neurofunk style drum and bass.

Despite the track being a specific type of electronic music, you will be able to apply all of the mixing and mastering techniques you learn in this course to other genres of electronic music, such as electro house, techno, glitch hop, trip hop, mid tempo music and many other styles.

The Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) used in this course is Ableton Live, but if you use a different DAW, and you're comfortable with producing music in it, you can apply all of the techniques in your DAW of choice.

Along with full access to all of the video tutorials, you will be able to download the Ableton Live project file used in this course to take a close look at each of the tracks and see exactly how the song was mixed.

Master the basics of great drum programming and take your beats from static loops to complete grooves

To me, there is a huge missing gap from online production videos with helping beginning electronic musicians go from being stuck in a loop to writing more full-fledged beats. So it was my intention with this first video to deliver you with the solid foundations of what makes for great programmed drums, and provide you with the skills needed to begin writing more interesting, musical drum parts for your tracks. By getting these very simple foundational ideas under your belt, you begin to understand more about how EDM is structured, how to make beats quickly, and you find yourself making much more creative beats. At least, that's my hope here :) The course is designed for those beginners who want to transition to an intermediate skill level but don't know how. I've made it fast so that you spend less time watching me build these ideas, and more time exploring how they work. In the series, I use examples from a wide variety of Genres-- from Hip Hop to Techno, House, and Future Bass-- to show that these core principles apply across styles. There is over 2 hours of content here, teaching you the core skill of writing beats regardless of which DAW you use. The idea here is to get your skills up to the next level as quickly as possible, and set you up for part 2 of this series, where we explore some of the more creative uses of these foundational ideas. These lessons took years of study for me to discover-- I hope that you take advantage of all that I've learned and boiled down here for you, and get your skills up and running quickly!If you have a computer, a DAW that you're familiar with, a few good drum samples and a way to hear everything, then I will show you how to make beats that make the rest of your music shine.

What are the requirements?

A computer with a DAW of choice (Logic, Live, Cubase, Studio One, etc.)
Speakers, Monitors, or Headphones that accurately represent the whole frequency range. Hearing bass will be important in this course, and laptop speakers are not advised
A working familiarity with the basics of your DAW
A basic level understanding of making electronic music; Knowledge of samplers, which drum sounds are which, what a compressor and an EQ is, and how to write a basic drum beat
A basic level understanding of rhythm theory; knowledge of quarter-notes, eighth-notes, and sixteenth-notes; understanding of what the beats of a bar are, what bars are, and what tempo is
A basic understanding of how to write basic beats in various genres; what a house beat is, what a hip-hop beat is, etc.

What am I going to get from this course?

Over 21 lectures and 2.5 hours of content!
Write more musical sounding drum patterns
Create a balanced sounding drum kit from samples quickly
Create Drums that "breathe" with the music in a subtle but pleasing way
Use Accents to spice up drum tracks and create fresh, new rhythms
Understand exactly how to write clear, focused drum phrases
Go from short loops to more developed drum parts

What is the target audience?

Beginner to Intermediate producers who are finding themselves "stuck" for new ideas of drum programming
