Pro Studio Live Elmo Arteaga The Complete Guide to Delay TUTORiAL
Strengthen the creativity in your mixes by watching our complete guide to the delay tool.

If your mixes are lacking depth or a sense of reality, this is the course for YOU!

This course will help you build an understanding of delay, or strengthen what you may already know about it. We’ll guide you from a brief history of the effect to the physics behind it, all the way to advanced techniques that can be used to bring your mix from good to great.

Delay is quite possibly the most used, yet misunderstood creative tool in the mixing engineer’s arsenal. Every major record you’ve heard in the past 40-60 years has had some instance of delay on it. Beginning at an explanation of the brief history of Delay along with some basic functions, all the way to advanced techniques as well as a primer of the physics behind the tool, in this class you’ll learn everything you need to know about the Delay tool.

We’ll be focusing on common applications of the Delay tool, found in contemporary music, as well as some techniques to help simulate a vintage sound in your mix! We’ll also go through how to setup your Delay on any instrument and explain why the order of operation is important. We’ll spend the majority of this course examining techniques, since this is an application dependent tool, but we’ll also touch on some effects like Flangers and Choruses, that can be made using a Delay tool with some post-processing.

In this class you’ll learn…

Digital Delay use. Analog Delay functionality. Creating depth in a 2-Dimensional plane. Simulating a doubled track. Different models of Delay. Physics of Sound Waves. Differentiation of Reverb and Delay. How to setup Delay.

What to listen for when using a Delay on:

Drums. Guitars (lead and rhythm). Piano. Vocals (lead, backgrounds, harmonies).

You’ll also learn advanced techniques like…

Throwing Delay using Automation. Artificial Stereo Spread. Acoustic environment simulation. Embellishment of an element within a mix.

Delay, like reverb, is one of those effects we take for granted as producers.The effect isn't as subtle or elusive as compression, for example, and it can often be immediately noticeable when applied even in small amounts so we often feel it needs no real introduction. However, the somewhat simple nature belies a far more complex application for music production and mixing.

For this session we unravel and explain the intricacies of employing delay. We begin by introducing the basic parameters that form the basis of all delay units before examining the importance of musical notation, the significance of delay timing in a mix, feedback uses, how to calculate the best delay times, the principles of echo, snapback, ADT, dynamic delay, filtered tails, tail processing, interference, comb filtering, chorusing, flanging, rhythmical delay taps and the uses of delayed frequency modulation to increase presence and dimensionality within a mix.

Throughout the tutorial we show why its such an influential effect and why a detailed understanding of delay will invariably change the sound of your music and mixing, making it appear cohesive, wider, bigger and exhibit a three-dimensional stage, all in all, producing a more professional mix.

In addition, for this tutorial, we also examine SoundToys Echoboy. This has become the industry standard delay unit of many professional so we discuss each parameter in detail and show how - through its wealth of modulation options - it has become one of the most creative and must have effects for the production of dance music.

With a comprehensive look at how various Live effects can affect stereo width, as well as a guide on how to construct customisable Ableton Live Effect Racks, this course is a must for any producer looking to create huge, wide sounding mixes.

A thorough understanding of the width of different elements in a mix is a crucial skill for any producer wanting to create huge, wide-sounding tracks that will translate onto any sound system. On this course by Producertech Senior Tutor Rob Jones, you'll be armed you with all the knowledge you need to achieve this, whether through basic panning and application of various effects, more complex adjustment of phase and frequency, or independent processing of mid and side signals, both on individual sounds, return tracks and the master bus. 

Each module discusses a different area of stereo mixing, with in-depth explanations of every technique and examples of how to apply them to drums, synthesisers, vocals and other instruments. Once a multitude of techniques have been thoroughly explored, there are 3 bonus lessons, including a lengthy tutorial that puts everything into practice whilst mixing an actual track. Throughout the tutorials, various Effects Racks are made, which come bundled with the course, so students not only learn about the inner workings of these advanced effects setups but also have instant presets to load up and apply to their mixes. 

Alongside the streamed video lessons, accessible on any online devices, students can also download comprehensive written notes that accompany each module, featuring clear explanations to aid with the learning process. With feedback and assistance always available via the Producertech website, this course will truly take your stereo mixing abilities to the next level.

COMPLETE GUIDE TO STEREO WIDTH

Module 1: Panning and the Utility Effect
Beginning with an explanation of what the stereo width of a signal is, this module then goes on to demonstrate how panning can be used to achieve a wider signal. The lesson also shows how the utility effect can be used to gain greater control over mid and side signals.

Module 2: Delay
This lesson shows how simple delay, ping pong delay, and filter delay can all be used to widen a signal.

Module 3: Chorus
This lesson shows how the chorus effect can be used to generate stereo width, and how this can be shaped by a filter to clean up the mix.

Module 4: Reverb
The module begins with a guide on using utility to check the processing on samples. Then, Live's reverb effect is explored, with each parameter's effect on the stereo width of a signal clearly demonstrated.

Module 5: Detuning
The effect of detuning on stereo width is explored in detail, and there is a guide on detuning a synth patch to thicken it, as well some tips on detuning a vocal sample to widen it.

Module 6: Adjusting Phase
There is an explanation of what phase is, and its impact on a signal. Then, the module teaches how to adjust the phase of a signal using the utility effect.

Module 7: Mid/Side EQ
This lesson teaches how to EQ left and right, and mid and side signals differently to increase the width of a signal.

Module 8: Other Mid/Side Processing
A variety of other effects used to process the side signal are demonstrated, including compression, frequency shifter and grain delay.

Module 9: Rack Presets
This lesson goes though the effect racks built throughout the course so far, and shows how to use them in Live.

Bonus Module 1: Building a Chorus Rack
A step by step guide to constructing a fully customisable chorus rack using simple delay and other live devices.

Bonus Module 2: Stereo Plugins
A brief look at some 3rd party stereo width plugins.

Bonus Module 3: Putting it all Together
A detailed look at the stereo considerations of individual tracks, return tracks and the master channel in a real life mixdown scenario.
