Mainroom Techno in Live by Paul Maddox TUTORiAL
Following the huge success of his Tech House and Techno course, Paul Maddox returns with a superb follow up set up of tutorials, offering even more of his production knowledge and expertise. This time round, Paul’s focus is on tougher, straight up Techno, and instead of showing how to make a single arrangement, he demonstrates how a groove can be taken in two very different directions, with one having classic, melodic elements and the other a much more atonal sound.

With numerous label releases and support from huge DJs including techno legend Richie Hawtin, Paul’s depth of understanding and experience in the field of techno production extends far beyond most. The combination of this skill set and his passion for teaching make his tutorials a must-see for anyone wanting to truly master the genre. Packed with creative techniques, which utilise only Live’s internal and Max for Live devices, the modules cover both the essential fundamentals and divergent approaches to producing techno.

Starting with the drum groove, Paul creates the beats and bass, employing ingenious tactics for achieving the all-important, rumbling techno bass sound. Following this, he demonstrates how to add ambience and subtle rhythmic textures, before applying individual and group processing. The latter modules then cover the creation of melodic parts, including a modular-style, atonal lead, using M4L devices and a synthesised and resampled ‘vinyl’ lead, whilst teaching many advanced signal processing and macro-mapping techniques along the way.

This is my first contribution to the community that I had to purchase myself to be able to do so. Thank you to the audioz community for supporting me for a long time...this is me giving back!

Learn to make music like the top producers in today's music industry.

This course is the ultimate guide to create a hip-hop beat for the club. We start from scratch and move through every detail of every step needed to make a professionally sounding record.

We begin by going over recommended music gear to be used in the studio when producing modern music. We will cover both hardware and software and what to look for in each to adapt to your needs.

We move on to learning what qualities to look for in the sounds for each instrument, including the synth, bass, kick, clap, and hi-hat. This section is really important because knowing what types of sounds to use can either make or break you as a producer.

The next topic is song structure. We go over a brief history then lay out the top 5 most popular song structures used today.

We move on to building both the melodic foundation for the synth and bass as well as a detailed approach of how to build the rhythm section. We go bar by bar and explain how to use both melodic and rhythmic variation to keep your listeners interested and to create movement within the record.

We then end the course with some final touches and tips & tricks of what to do after your record is created to get it played in the club.

This course is for the producer that has some experience but wants to understand the details of every step of the production process so that they have more creative control of both their productions and their career.

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 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.
