2015 New tutorials, Time for any topic requests

Finally have some time to dedicate to tutorials, and have some standard courses laid out for the nabs in live 9, but I wanted to ask you guys about which of the more advanced topics you would like me to cover.

Let me know what you would like to know more about.

To give you guys some ideas here are some sound design request that I will be covering in Q1

Hardstyle Kicks
Trap Kicks and basslines
Organic Synthesis with third party synths
EQ types
Advanced organic sampling/re-sampling (noise extraction, sound shaping)

And some microphone tutorials.

Shotguns and how to use them
Lavaliers and how to use them


I'm open to shit I don't know that well too, so if there are some fringe tech topics you are curious about I would mention em too.

Re: 2015 New tutorials, Time for any topic requests

How about effect racks, chain selector, and frequency splitting in racks?

Could all be done in one tut.

Ah a great idea, effect racks have so many possibilities often overlooked, so this would be a really informative tut for a lot of folks.

Custom multiband distortion and compression units could be cool too, completely made from native live 9 stuff.

Thanks RFJ, exactly the kinda input I was looking for!

Re: 2015 New tutorials, Time for any topic requests

One thing that gets brought up a lot is the issue of tracks/master levels, gain staging...basically just where do people start with their levels when they begin a new project. Best practices for keeping the Master at a reasonable level - especially if there's dB requirements from a mastering engineer.

Yea I've noticed this in a lot of question threads... its just really a bit of simple DSP theory.

I plan on mentioning it in my intro course regarding compression and introduction to in the box bedroom studio mix/master.

Saddly I think its something that we all learn eventually and ignore at the beginning. The whole quieter mix for a louder master really doesn't make into newbies heads. Also most start out producing and composing into a master bus compressor without understand really what it does, so there is a lot of potential for growth, but I fear its not an easy one to take into practice.

That said I will try to make a clear example with side-by-side comparisons, so people can hear what they are missing.


On another note, something I have seen virtually nothing made about sample/program-file/vst/dll file structure and organizing.

IMO this is critical for a fast workflow especially with a large sample library, and its is often skipped leaving people to learn it the hard way.
There is a shit ton of windows functionality that can be well utilized to help with this in and out of the DAW.

Side Chaining frequencies?

---
I'll try my very best to clarify what I mean.
Lets say I have a synth that has a very deep bass and treble. But I want the Bass Frequencies to duck when the kick hits, and the High to remain.

Make sense?

Absolutely, this is something that works into what RFJ mentioned.
The term your looking for is multi-band sidechaining, and this can be achieved with native live plugins.

There is passive and active ways of doing this too. I will likely Include this with the tut about creating multiband units with FX racks.

Re: 2015 New tutorials, Time for any topic requests

I like what has already been mentioned, one thing I can never get enough of though is performing a song live. Not sure if that is something you have experience with, but I aspire to be able to play electronic music much like a conventional musician performs a song.

I have seen some stuff on how to strip the effects off of your finished track and bounce it all to audio so you can play it in session view in Live, and then reapply the effects on top of the audio so you can still control and manipulate the sound a little, but I always want to learn some extra trips to give a live performance of a song more room to get creative without sucking up a ton of CPU

Being as I'm knee deep in making my first live set I'd be very interested in seeing this as well.

Good idea, often I do suto-performances of songs to get an idea of how to arange the track.

For example I'll get the climax and build idea loops finalized in session view and do a 5-15min performance of them with record on to try out possible transitions to take to the final arrangement.

In terms of stripping back and doing a performance of a finished track I have little experience with that, but I will include my take of it in the tutorial.
