Module Details

  • 1. Module 1 - Introduction
    This lesson provides an introduction to the Logic Project created and developed throughout the course, showing all of the components that make it up. Then, the drums are explored in greater detail, with each individual track being introduced and played in isolation, to help better understand the role it plays.
  • 2. Module 2 - Sample Selection and Basic Sequencing
    This lesson shows the various considerations when choosing different drum samples for a dubstep track, using a spectral analyser to help visualise each choice. Then, the samples are sequenced into a simple 4-bar break.
  • 3. Module 3 - Adding Percussion, Fills, Reverse Samples and Balancing the Levels
    This lesson fills out the drum break with some additional percussion sounds, showing how they're selected and sequenced. Then, a drum fill from Logic's library is added, which is sliced up and rearranged. Reverse samples are added to make the break flow, and finally the levels are adjusted to improve the mix.
  • 4. Module 4 - Adding Effects and Creating a Submix
    This lesson looks at how to process the individual drum tracks, largely with compression and EQ, to eliminate problems and improve the sound. Then, send FX are added to create extra depth, and finally a submix track is made, allowing all the drums to be processed and mixed on their own separate mixer track.

Reviewed by Petri from howtomakeelectronicmusic.com

Even though I don’t consider myself as a beginner producer anymore, I learned tons of golden tips from the sample selection module alone. I think the guidelines FracTroniX is sharing here applies – not just for Dubstep – but for other EDM genres as well. You really get an idea of what to look for when choosing a samples for your project. Personally, I never thought of how big difference it can make whether the sample selection is successful or not right from the beginning. The usage of a spectral analyzer is covered as well and I think this knowledge will come in very handy in my own future projects when I pick my samples.

All in all, this is a very good course and I definitely recommend it – whether you’re a beginner or more seasoned producer in Dubstep or similar genres.
