Sound Design with Massive

  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.

Join me to learn EVERYTHING you need to get your tracks up and running fast, all the way up to polishing your songs, with these in-depth Cubase 9.5 video tutorials.

Introducing now the 4th Edition of the Mastering Cubase 9 Series. Wow! A big THANK YOU to all of our previous students! And a bigger WELCOME to those to come :)

The first Edition was dedicated to the installation, configuration and overall study of the menus, bars, tools and commands within Cubase. 

Then, we used all of our newly aquired knowledge to craft some awesome Deep House tracks during the second Edition of the Series. 

After that, it was time to actually dive in a bit further into the theory and practice behind the mixing and production tools Cubase has to offer. 

Now, we want to learn about production! We want to look at synthesizers and learn more about MIDI to make our tracks sound real, professional and finished!

You’ll learn all about each of the Synths and MIDI plugins that come natively with your copy of Cubase 9.5.

You’ll also be able to follow up with the practice sections entirely using Cubase, thanks to the Steinberg factory content that comes with your software and which includes samples, loops and presets for you to kickstart your projects.

Want to get going with Cubase 9? Watch Mastering Cubase 9.5: VST Instruments & MIDI Insterts Edition today!

Happy Learning :)

Synthesizers and Samplers Explained

Taking the guess work out of sound design

Students: 801, Price:  Paid

Musicians, Producers, Audio Engineers, Beat Makers, and Artists: Odds are you have used a sampler and a synthesizer already. These instruments do amazing things, but do you truly understand what you are doing when you turn those knobs and push those buttons? Or are you just trying stuff until it sounds cool?

I can help you take the guess work out of that, as well as improve your workflow when making music. Whether you use hardware instruments or plug-ins, these controls and concepts are universal to every synthesizer and sampler. If you are creating using music software such as FL Studio, Logic, Pro Tools, Reason, Nuendo, Cubase, MPC Renaissance, etc., it doesn't matter. Again, these concepts are universal.

This short course (less than 30 lectures, all less than 20 mins) will dig in to how synthesizers and samplers create and manipulate sound. I will show you how to create a custom synth patch from scratch and how to create your own sampler instruments, as well as some basic MIDI sequencing and editing.

Have you always wanted to approach a hardware synth like a Moog or a software synth like Massive and understand how to program it? Well this course is for you.

The goal of this course is to provide students with a fundamental understanding of how synthesizers work and how to manipulate them to create the sounds they've always wanted to make.

Learn essential synth elements such as oscillators, filters, and envelopes: what they do, how they work together, and how to go about creating sounds beyond the manufacturer’s pre-set patches.

UPON FINISHING THIS COURSE YOU WILL KNOW:

  • How to identify just about any synthesizer by type, old or new, and how to use it

  • How to create any sound of your own concept using a hardware or software synthesizer

  • How to incorporate synthesizers and synth-style processing techniques into DAW programs like Ableton Live

  • How to distinguish where your favourite “retro” synth sounds come from along with other classic sounds like those made by Moog, ARP and Oberheim

TOPICS COVERED

  • Signal Generators and Signal Modifiers

  • Types of Synthesis  (subtractive, additive, FM, wavetable etc.)

  • Synthesizer modules – (VCO, VCF, VCA, CV processors, LFO, Wave Shapers)

  • Common synthesizer layouts

  • Incorporating synth elements into audio production

  • Hardware vs. software - finding the right synth for you

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • We cover all the Ableton Live Synths so Ableton Live would be helpful but not mandatory.

Course Overview:

This course kicks things off with a solid introduction to wavetable as a synthesis platform. You'll learn about how it is different from subtractive, FM and additive synthesis.  Plus, you'll get a birds eye view of what wavetable IS and ISN"T good for - so that you don't waste any time reinventing the wheel.

That's followed by a break down of Wavetables features and components.  There are the staples - oscillators, filters and envelopes.  But, you'll also learn how the sub oscillator, LFO shaping and envelope looping works.

But, features aren't enough - you'll need a method for making cool sounds in Wavetable.  So, you'll get 3 sections, containing 28 video lessons explaining how EXACTLY to use the features of Wavetable to make sounds.  You'll learn how to think about sound design AND then see it done, step-by-step.

As the course concludes, you'll learn how the modulation matrix in Wavetable empowers you to make evolving, atmospheric sounds - one of the most interesting ways to use wavetable synthesis!

Find out what Wavetable can do - this course puts everything on display and makes it easier to learn.  By the end of the course, you'll feel at home with Ableton's Wavetable synthesizer and you'll be ready to design your own patches and make music!
