How To Produce House Music
Do you want to create real House Music? Do you want achieve a professional sound that really works on the dance-floor? Do you want to know all the techniques necessary to develop a simple idea into a finished arrangement? Do you want your final master to sound as good as the music released by established House labels?
What this course is about:
This video course is designed to help you understand the techniques, concepts and practices behind professional House Music making. In the 35 videos you will learn how to create a track from scratch. We begin with building the beat on a vintage Roland TR-909 and sampling it back into the system.
I then demonstrate how to build all of the elements of the track: bass, synthesisers, sequencer, riff, pad and vocal samples. Everything you would need to know to flesh out your own arrangement!
In the course I use a variety of instruments and plugins including Maschine, the Yamaha Reface CS and MOXF6, Prophet 08, Arp Odyssey, NI Massive and more. Although quite a few different instruments are used on these videos, the course focuses on the actual musical and creative aspect of the production process; so you'll be able apply the techniques explained to your own hardware or software.
You will then learn how to build the entire arrangement in Cubase - creating an intro, an outro, a breakdown and a drop. I show how to program all automation, adding effects and transition sounds to add the final sparkle, before finally mixing and finalising the track into a ready to release master.
When you enrol in the course you'll have access to all of the individual samples, loops, tracks and groove templates that we captured from the TR-909! In the package you'll also find the session's multi-track, both midi and audio, so you can practice your House production and mixing skills.
