This year at Point Blank HQ we’ve been busy creating a variety of music production tutorials to cater to your needs. We’ve covered Ableton Live, Logic Pro, GarageBand and more making sure we explore all the tools available to producers at either beginner or advanced levels. Below find out how one of our favorite artists makes their epic tracks, how you can build a beat in GarageBand
As well as our intense courses in Ableton Live and Logic Pro, we also upload regular tutorials to our YouTube channel. If you want to learn how these things work, be it in London, Los Angeles, Ibiza, Mumbai or online check out our courses and see which one suits you best.
In this tutorial, Monstercat’s Gammer shows us the secrets behind his epic track, ‘Out With The Old’. During the video, he pulls back the curtain on some of his favourite EQ plugins, how he creates his tension-filled buildups and then finally how he produces his track’s massive payoff.
Although we focus heavily on Ableton and Logic at Point Blank, we try to cater to all aspects of music production. This is why, this year, we decided to give those of you who aren’t using either Ableton or Logic a tutorial in something slightly more accessible. In this GarageBand tutorial one of our composition and mixing instructors, John Davies, takes you through the basics of how to build a track.
Ever wondered how producers create that ducking effect in their track mixes? Well, above you can learn how. It’s called sidechain compression and is considered one of the most important aspects of creating dance music. The technique allows you to let the kick drum, or whatever element you desire, punch through the mix creating space for a clean result.
If you’re feeling inspired by these tutorial videos, why not check out our Intro to Music Production course where you can get to grips with Ableton Live 10 and Logic Pro X? If you’ve mastered the basics already but want to brush up on your skills you should definitely consider enroling on one of our highly-acclaimed Music Production & Sound Engineering Degrees. Production not your thing? We offer a range of different courses and degrees including DJ Courses, Singing & Songwriting Courses, Radio Courses, Music Industry Courses and more. Take your pick!
