This article is a holder for the 5-Video series on making, composing with, arranging & mixing the main categories of melodic sounds you will use when making almost any style of music.
- Part I: Bass
- Part II: Poly
- Part III: Leads
- Part IV: Pads
Part V is about Layered Sounds which helps you to understand not only how to develop these sorts of mega-sounds but how they parallel the same skills you need in Arranging & Mixing. I walk you through making a sound from scratch with every action explained.
While these tutorials may seem Synthesizer focused (something I never shy from), what you learn here will apply equally to guitars, orchestras, baritone banjos…
Each video is long. These aren’t about showing you magic tips & tricks but to understand the reasoning behind every decision you make over what goes in the arrangement to make (or un-make) a good song. Take the time to understand and you’ll find that in a week or so you will realize that you feel a lot more in-control of what you are doing.
