Besides working on your basic production skills, we’ll also go more in depth with Music theory for Producers, Mixing/Mastering and Synthesis/Sound-design.
Music theory for Producers will teach you about scales, melody, rhythm and chords in a way that’s relevant to electronic music producers. Once you understand the basic concepts, we will then use them to build throbbing bass lines, banging beats and flowing chord progressions. Not only will it allow you to make your music faster, your tracks will also be more coherent.
A good way to create a unique and recognizable signature, is to build your own sounds from scratch, or mangle existing sounds with effects and editing. Synthesis/Sound-design will give you a firm grasp of the most common synthesis methods, including subtractive, additive and FM, and apply this in a hands-on way to a wide range of popular software synths. Furthermore, we’ll take a broader look at sound-design and learn about advanced use of effects and sampling- and editing techniques.
When you have all the elements for your track and are happy with the structure, it’s time for Mixing. You’ll learn how to use compression, EQ and reverb to make all the elements work together and make the whole more than the sum of its parts. When the mix is done, you will then take it to another level with Mastering.
During the whole DJ/Producer course in our producer school, you’ll work towards making a finished demo that could be presented to labels.
