In this latest course from Producertech, experienced producer Rich, aka Defazed, teaches how to make a heavy track in one of the most current and popular styles of electronic music – Glitch Hop. With a career spanning from classic Drum & Bass to the cutting edge of electronic music, and with releases on various labels in the UK, Germany and the US, as well as a wealth of class-based teaching experience in a number of colleges, Defazed is ideally suited to teach the skills necessary to make quality music with Native Instruments’ Maschine.
Throughout the lessons, Defazed breaks down a Glitch Hop track into its components, analysing the beats, bass and glitch elements, and demonstrating how to build up a track and give it the characteristic ambience. In addition, he takes you through Native Instruments’ Massive, showing his techniques for creating hard-edged bass patches and building chord sequences, whilst discussing the merits of wavetable synthesis. As well as synthesising, there’s also a demonstration of classic bass resampling techniques, showing how to produce gnarly-sounding, D&B style bass.
After the main groove elements are programmed and worked into various patterns, Defazed shows you how he fills out the arrangement with melodic and atmospheric elements, and different automated effects progressions, before demonstrating how to recognise and resolve problem areas and tweak your mix to create the best possible sound.
The lessons come with the Maschine project from the course, as well as 250MB of bonus samples from Loopmasters. Before signing up, check out the sample module on the media tab.
