How do I make a tutorial

No troll was thinking about making a tutorial video for idmf (to help out any beginners) but I’m not sure how to go about it

Was thinking aBout recording my workflow in my daw, want to make a breakcore tutorial and a sound fuckery/resampling vid

I’m asking you guys because I’m not sure what Google search will lead me to the info that I so much desire that and you are more tech savy than me

Apologies for any misspelling of grammatical errors its autocorrrect

Are you asking from a technical point of view, as in what to use to screen record and caption or from a workflow point of view, as in how to organise the tut?
Depending on your target, might be different format.
I was thinking about making one myself and as the target would only be IDMf, I would go for a text/pics based thing with embedded sound samples.
I started from this
(link to audio)
applied these effects
resampled to this
(audio) and so forth.

As for general Youtube tuts, I did some shit ([This was my most successful])( but they weren’t so good so I wouldn’t be able to help.
As a producer, I prefer text based things, but that’s because I’m old and slow.

For recording:

For basic free editing you can use Hitfilm Express:


This video helped me get myself sorted with obs and recording my daw audio. I did a few things differently but the intitial part of the video guides you through some stuff you need.

And something else, I forget at the moment. It is explained in the video. Its like an internal mixer.

I think he specifically routes it a certain way that I couldn’t get to work but but all the tools were there for me to figure it out afterwards. Which it wasn’t difficult. Just had to order things the way I liked them in the routing chain.

Not sure you have Ableton but I’m sure it’s similar.

Also, as far as the tutorial thing goes. If you end up recording your session, YouTube has a limit. Like 15 mins or so. I also would suggest a mic as I did one recently and it was meh because I tried doing text pop ups as the video went on. It was a “how to midi chop drums” thingy.

EDIT - It might help if i linked video:

I’b probably attempt more once I sort the mic portion.

i have fl studio

There is a video for that I’m sure. But the above video still has the stuff you’ll need. And the Ableton part only relates to how you chain the audio out.

When I have some time I’ll try to take screenshots of how mine is set up. If that might be helpful.

i figured it out thanks guys :smiley:

also been using lightworks to edit the obs recordings if they run over the 15 minute mark

OBS is the shit. Also I think you can get verified in like 10 minutes to remove that 15-minute cap
