About This Class

e6ec9ef0

Organic Beats will teach you how to take a single note, which we record together, and create a full composition out of!

Nowadays, a lot of producers are trying to achieve that 'EDM sound'.  Well, not this course!  Organic Beats is a very unique music course.

With my teaching style, I always fill you in on off-topic goodies to keep you educated and aware of why I am applying certain techniques.  [You will understand what is going on even if you have limited audio production knowledge.]

I love how this beat turned out! [Just watch the promo video to hear the end result!]

-------------------

Who is this course for?:

  • Aspiring music producers eager to further their creativity and productions
  • Producers who want to get away from current trends, and be original!
  • Beatmakers looking for that video to help them create high quality beats

-------------------

Course Process:

We start this course off by actually recording a piano and guitar note together!

We move into editing this note, showing my personal preferences to achieve the best quality in your recording.

I then show how to sculpt and mold this sound for optimal use!  When playing by itself, the note isn't too usable, but after applying the techniques shown in Section 4 'Sculpting Our Sound', this sound becomes a deeply emotional element.

We then get into building our beat, all while you are shown how to mold, shape, and carve space for each new instrument we create.

You even learn complex mixer routing, which is beautifully labelled, and gives an amazing workflow!

I've also included a bonus video getting you started arranging your song for that professional sound.  [Arrangement is just as much a factor as the actual composition!]
