About This Class

dab0237e

In this class, I will go over the basics of making a 'progressive house pluck' used by EDM artists, such as Deadmau5. You will learn how to create the sound, write the midi notes, and use automation to create a rise effect. All that is needed is a Digital Audio Work Station (DAW) and a synthesizer. For this class, I used Ableton Live 9 as my DAW and Serum as my synthesizer. However, almost any DAW and synthesizer will work.

The class project will be a short track you made using your own unique modification of the sound and writing your own midi notes and automation.
