Description

In this course, I will deconstruct an EDM track of mine called "Call The Doctor". I will explain my philosophy on why I made certain production decisions; I will show you the plugins and presets I used to get the sounds; I will break down the drum loops so that you can see how I created the patterns. I will teach you how to create sidechain compression to make your own productions pump! On top of that, I will reveal little tricks of the trade that I have picked up over the years. You will get an eagle-eye view as I reverse engineer this fully-loaded track. If you are brand new to production, this course could expedite your learning curve tremendously. If you are serious about investing in your craft, look no further than here. I look forward to sharing my experience with you. 

Who is the target audience?
  • Beginner and Novice Producers who want to see how a finished EDM track is constructed

Music Hobbyist - Teacher - Mentor

I have been writing and producing music for over 10 years. My favorite tracks to produce are pop, rock, hip hop, acoustic and dance tracks. My two preferred instruments are guitar and piano. My setup at home includes Pro Tools 10, a Universal Audio Twinfinity preamp, KRK Rokit 5 speakers & Native Instruments Maschine. My favorite plugins include anything by Steven Slate. I enjoy the Waves Renaissance Bundle, Native Instruments Komplete bundle and Nexus2 as my virtual synths of choice.
