Welcome to the Modern Synth Boogie course where you will learn how to produce a track and also develop your skills as a producer. You will learn how to arrange a track, select the right sounds that are genre specific to Synth Boogie and to mix your track to a high level. Also in this tutorial you will be able to apply the skills you learn to other genres such as Nu-Disco and House Music, so the opportunities to take from this course are not limited to this one style.
The course requires you to download some 3rd party plug ins which are free to do so and also the drum files and midi files are also included for you to use should you need them. Everything is here for you to produce a full track in this style taking influence from artists of the early 1980's right on through to modern nu disco producers and artists.
Once the track is arranged you will then perform a detailed mix down of the recording in which you will learn how to apply the correct plug ins within Ableton such as compression, grouping tracks and delay and reverb.
The key elements in this course are
1. Drum programming.
2. Arrangement skills
3. Bass line performance and programming.
4. Chord playing and structure.
5. Mixing skills.
6. Prepping your track for mastering.

My name is Rob Webster and I am a professional record producer and record label owner.
I create and teach people how to produce music of various genres and to hopefully pass on my knowledge and experience to others who wish to become producers. My courses are mostly within the Ableton software with the use of various 3rd party plug ins and I teach a whole range of different genres ranging from Disco & Techno to Chill Out music.
My courses are very easy and simple to follow with many different learning techniques such as playing the keyboards and chord structure through to editing and audio mixing. You can read my biography below, thank you.
