  Here's what some students are saying about this course: 

  "This course is amazing. I've tried to learn Massive through tons of Youtube videos and other sources previously. This course taught me so much more in the first couple of sections than all of my previous efforts combined. Dylan takes time and goes through every single slider, knob, and setting and describes it's function and usefullness. I'm about half-way through the lectures, and I can't wait to get to Section 8 where the knowledge is applied." 

  - J. DiPalmo 

  "Dylan's experience on the topic and his ability to analyze and simplify complex materials, compounded with solid presentation skills, rich articulation and enthusiasm throughout this lecture series, resulted in a 5-star winner product." 

  - A. Stergiopoulos 

  "Great intro to sound design using massive.. Dylan does a great job explaining the concepts without drowning you in a sea of technical information." 

  - F. Carvalho 

    "I am new with sound production and this course inspired me to keep learning. Mr Bowes knows his stuff and he teach based on his own experience instead of just following the course outline. Thanks man." 

  - Akmal 

    -- 

        This course is a comprehensive training course in the popular and powerful "Massive" VST plug-in from Native Instruments. Using 100% high-definition screencasts, you will learn the ins and outs of this software. 

        In 1 week, you will be able to create huge, earth-shaking basses, lush pads, screaming leads, and even some crazy FX presets. 

        I created this course because learning the principles of true sound design opened up a world of possibilities for my productions. Massive helped get me there. Now I want to show you how to get there too. 

        You'll get access to 52 video tutorials. That's over 10 hours of content. Plus I include all of the preset files that we build in the course for free. All for a really great price with a 30 day money-back guarantee. You can't beat that. 

        You know that you're sick of being a preset-picker. Learn sound design and get over that production plateau that has been making you hate your mediocre mixes. 

        You will become a master of Massive. 

     -- 

     A few words about the methodology of this course. The first third of the course features lectures that describe elements of the software including the user interface, navigating presets, and how to control parameters. The middle portion of the course delves into sound design techniques and modulation assignments. The last third features in-depth tutorials about building specific sounds. If you already have a pretty good handle on Massive (or other soft synths) then you may want to skip the introductory portions. I designed this course to take the student from complete novice to expert. In other words, I wanted a student who has no experience with sound design or synthesizers to feel comfortable. However, I also provide lots of deep content for more experienced users. Plus, if you're like me, hearing someone else explain what I thought I already knew is still very helpful. All that to say, feel free to jump around in the chronology of the course. But don't take the fundamentals for granted.

Don't be a "preset-picker" anymore! 

You get frustrated with your productions because you are constantly scrolling through factory presets of your synthesizers. You look at the user interface of Sylenth and think to yourself, "I'll never know how to use this thing. It's too complicated. It's for professionals." You try to mess with some of the controls, but give up because it takes too long. Then you return to scrolling through presets again and sticking to stock sounds for your mixes. 

I'm here to change all that. 

You can master the principles of subtractive synthesis--even if you don't know what that means. You can design your own sounds from scratch. You can learn how to imagine a sound and then build it from the ground up using Sylenth. 

After taking this course, you will be able to dream up a sound, determine the right building blocks for that sound, and design it inside Sylenth--and quickly. I will teach you the fundamental principles of subtractive synthesis, walk you through every single nook and cranny of the software, and show you exactly how to create your very own sounds from scratch. 

I created this course to be comprehensive--if you are new to sound design or synthesis, you will not be left behind. If you are somewhat familiar with using synthesizers, I promise you will learn new valuable techniques for your productions. 

Using 55 high definition screencasts, I'll teach you everything you need to know about Lennar Digital's Sylenth software. We leave no knob unturned or LFO un-cycled. We will walk through every aspect of the software methodically, and then use a cookbook approach to building our own sounds. I'll also include my own presets used in the course for you to download for your own reference. 

You will leave this course a master of Sylenth.

Lennar Digital's "Sylenth" is a powerful, versatile, and all-around awesome sounding soft synth. 

Highly regarded among producers and DJs as the only virtual synthesizer which truly emulates the warmth and clarity of analog hardware synths, Sylenth is the primary tool for many electronic and pop music producers.     In this course, you will learn every aspect of this very powerful virtual synthesizer. 

Using 100% high definition video tutorials, you will learn how to navigate the software, how the audio signal path works, and how to design sounds from scratch--from screaming leads to fat basses, weird fx patches, lush pads, and even drum loops! 

All you need is the Sylenth VST and a host DAW (digital audio workstation) of some kind. I'll show you the rest.    We will walk through the entire architecture of the software, from oscillators to filters to modulation routing to effects processing. Everything you need to create unique, stunning sounds is contained within this course. 

Even if you have no prior knowledge of sound design, analog synthesis, or music theory, by the end of this course you will be creating your own sound patches with confidence and creativity.     In the process, you will develop skills in analog synthesis which you can translate to many other synths such as Native Instruments' Massive, Rob Papen's Predator, and just about any other virtual analog synthesizers. 

You will also learn how to design specific sounds for specific genres. Are you tired of sifting through presets, unhappy with your choices? Learn how to translate the sounds in your head into powerful, rich, and warm patches which you can save in your own soundbank. 

Don't be a preset picker! Learning how to design your own sounds will take your productions to the next level. It will help you be more musical and will make your mixes unique. 

Join us and become a master of Sylenth.

Sound Design Basics 101 [LEARN SOUND DESIGN IN FL STUDIO]

How to Use Sylenth1, Serum and Pigments 2 to Learn Sound Design, Make Beats, and Create Your Own Signature Sound.

Welcome to Sound Design Basics 101!

After many years of being a producer, as well as creating these online music production courses teaching about FL Studio..

I finally released my first sound design course.

Sound design has always been something that felt overwhelming for me.

And honestly, I’ve always found sound design to be boring and tiring whenever I’ve tried to learn it.

To force myself to learn sound design, I started releasing FREE Preset banks for Serum, Sylenth1, and Pigments, and my sound design has been downloaded over 50,000 times!

I thought it was time to share what I’ve learned, and how to apply sound design into your own beats!

I use Serum, Sylenth1, and Pigments to teach this course, but you do not need them. They’re only used as a visual aid to help make things easier to understand.

In this course, I’ll teach you the 3 Basic Fundamentals of Sound Design.

Once you understand these three basic principles, you can literally pick up any synth and have a general idea of how things work.

After receiving a lot of awesome feedback from my own sound design, let me show you how!

If you’re ready to get started, let’s do it!

Enroll, and I’ll talk to you inside.
