Lesson Info

Segment 18 - Remixing a House Song - Bass

I love a little thing I want to put in here is a little have a little vocal sound that I've made sixteen four stuck a fine books it's just a little snippet of a vocal s own isn't sound to goods so real let me try different down instead actually I think possibly stereo that I may be yes we put these in a few different places where did I put these? Um do you ever layer kicks or joint parts of kicks for a big fat house kick sound like stack mom no really I mean, it depends what kind of house music you're doing really in general I tried to just use one nice kids made their might later another one if I do that it's not going to have the bomb on it it's just gonna be for the mids and the click on it but I'm talking about yesterday it's not good to layer kicks both were basing you might get facing problems and you end up with less base so in general was better to choose one good keep that sounds good well that and trying to lay low is to get one it sounds good, but like I said hi past lopez y...

eah yeah I don't even know past the main one I just have to make one as it is and then just high pastor the next one I'm adding on how often do you find yourself actually doing that very often or do you just find a kick sound the chiefs you like half think ok yes I have to tell my just choose a kick that sounds good ana half the time I think we'll know it needs another little mid layer in there yeah call on everything I might do here as well is ah copy rezo vocal base we'll get a little kind of simply sound in here wait you chris but you know ways that she needed me and museums to um what are you doing that teo cases this is quite simple little pinky sounds and put a bit of ah relive on there she's my doctor and again here you can hear the I've got the visa on the initial sounds but on the delays there's no reverb so what can also do is on my delay track here? Can she send that to some river as well? Now that night has everybody as well wait just command plus going at the later last a bit longer as well so I'll deal go in here I'll tell the feed back up to about fifty three percent maybe don't let it happen again over here but this time on my way to happen a lot if higher so again I'll go over here instead of going in turning up in multi infarct is quickly choose it here are higher also as it's a naughty fire it seems to be a bit allowed in as well partly because the way I'll be cued it so I can also turn the velocity down in this little box appeared as well turn that down things seem to be having sex is poorly because the reason for that sure here yeah look like yesterday in the year six twenty four I was talking about the difference in velocity you have this faded here if this is all the way down in the matter how hard I hit the key full velocity turned up no yes you have control of the house allowed the sound is turning down more or less control turned up because that is a higher I'm just going to change the color tio purple to a glance to see these two different that one is a lower one and that one is ohio one again copy these over here on this middle part here my total idiot bassitt it which is not really typical and house music because I'm bringing my kind of john based background to this nothing for my change up a bit so I'm going to choose from a base pack going to choose uh sick base that chance and this is a sound I made on the mini boots wear it again because the speed is made of john based speed I need to change the speed of it here in the sampler I think minus for their plus for him this part here for the first sixteen bar first I need to go into the base here and make a gap I can even do that by going in and meeting the notes car notes here place it would be sound here. Yeah, I think he's down and again just because he's one note is that you need me to place you know I'm just going right in with a pen and I think it was just over the first biologist under the civil right back here it's just over a belong to do that and again I want to put the phone plugging on it I'll have a quick tip to show people as well the memo makes a page you can actually all the plug in cia you can actually copy or move so if I was depressed commands drag this it would move it for press command and alternate it copies it so sickly little tip there if you want a copy on e q and a photo anything from one track to another or even within the same even the same track ceo that's command an alternate and you can copy your plug ins so let's have a listen tio slightly too short just live there maybe just to emphasize that changes well I might want tio take out a few of the drums maybe maybe the tempering here so because it's a ghost part is going to ask me if I would have changed the regional or make of your copy and I want to make a real copy that and uh I might take out all of these some marines hiss here why that that have a basis plane near them and again because that part is different on it in a different court yes theo yeah they got there he noticed there but that fine vocal sound is slightly flat to me so I went in here and you have a fine tune here so I just tune up slightly on that you'll find books um it was there any questions? Yeah, we have two really good questions a series in the bus were using bus effects in the send box to add effects and the advantage to doing that versus adding effects to a single track yeah, I mean there's lots of different it's not the pluses and minuses I mean what they were the devices the advantage is I can use one effect send different things to the other advantage is if I put if I put you affect about you on the track um then I can for instance take the bass out of the river for example take the boat out of the whole track. So for instance u s o on this distill a designer here for instance I haven't e q afterwards taking some bottom out because in there plugging itself I want to be able to do that so if that was actually on the track itself I can't scope to shape off the effect on its own so that's another ad but you're doing it yeah, I just prefer that this really reminiscent is the old school way of doing when you had the mixing disc every now they're not mine put in effect directly onto the channel strip but in general I prefer the bus way of doing it it's just more than I was just it's the way I've done it and there's nothing when we have a way that is president clinton's either way awesome. Um an anonymous user wants to know if you can go a bit more into detail about the delays uh he says he always gets such great w delays. Thanks. Yeah, I did a little bit of that. Yeah again it was like I was watching you. Yeah, I seem to get the dubbed a lie in so you got a bus? Uh take that. Yeah, but is this grouping here by default? It said in the middle of course it says they later died apes and in plus getting your feedback just right and just having a low cut up a little bit and your and your high cut down a little bit it gives it that kind of dub kind of effect

Class Description

Learn the basics of producing electronic music from DJ and producer, Ed Solo. Ed has worked with DJ Fresh, Krafty Kuts and FreakNasty, and in this class he’ll show you how to drop the beat using Logic Pro.

Ed will take you through the essential elements of electronic music and show you how to use Logic's EXS24 sampler and a few other virtual instruments. You’ll learn how to work with Logic Pro’s stock sounds and explore the range of options you already have in your DAW. Ed will teach you proper routing and mixing with eq, compression, and effects. Then he’ll show you how to bring the elements together and produce a complete mix. Ed will also discuss what differentiates the electronic music genres, drum 'n' bass, trap, dubstep, and house — and how to create the sound that make them unique. Ed will also show how many of these techniques can be applied to any DAW, not just Logic Pro.

Fantastic course. Hands on details from an experienced producer, showing us tons of useful, time saving tips to get real results. I can't get enough of this style of teaching. Thanks Creative Live and Ed Solo!

This is a great course which covers basics as well as more advanced techniques, and the insight into Ed's workflow is very useful.


Picked up a lot of good information from this class. Ed is very knowledgeable, and takes us through the technique and the thought process of sound production, composition, mixing, and mastering. Towards the end of the course, at times it felt a little disjointed, as the segments switched between different tracks; but the information provided was good, once I got oriented. Would definitely recommend this course.
