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.

Udemy Drum Programming 101: How to Write Great Drum Parts TUTORiAL
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.

Jamtrackcentral Daniele Gottardo 20 Outside Fusion Licks (2015)
There is a new wave of fusion players, and Daniele Gottardo is at the forefront! Playing 'Outside' is a skill that is one of the toughtest to be able to grasp...but with this incredible set of 20 licks you are going to master it!
'Within this package you will find lots of ideas and different solutions to play over a minor harmony based around the Dorian Mode. I used different colors and ideas typical of the Fusion style: the use of the notes out of the harmony ( passing tones, enclosures , escape tones and others ) harmonic substitutions, ghost progression and coltrane changes. These ideas are played with a modern approach to the instrumental technique using legato, hybrid picking mixed with alternate picking, 8 fingers tapping and other. The licks are ordered and developed from easy to difficult, starting with four notes per beat and come in the last example to eight notes per beat! Have fun to study these ideas that you will find useful in the Fusion but also in the modern rock and metal era'
Each lick comes in full speed audio and video, plus a slower speed so that you can analyse every little detail! Also included is the backing track at different BPM's, giving you the backdrop to work on each lick at your own pace, as well as creating your own licks. As ever, accurate JTC TAB/Notation is included for each lick, plus there are some notes for each lick to help you further.
So, if you are serious about fusion then this is a package tha will take your playing to a different level! Watch the promo video below to get a little taster of what to expect!
