DJ Suketu – one of India’s top DJs and co-founder of The Music Inc (TMI) – continues his weekly vlog series while studying Point Blank’s Complete Electronic Music Production online course. Suketu is one of India’s best selling Indian DJ’s with a string of hits which have become club classics. Have a look below to see how Suketu summarised his experience of week 2, and stay tuned each week as he shares his experience on the course.
After week 1’s focus on rudimental drum programming, week 2 expands on the basics to introduce effects and auxiliary percussion. The class covers the sound design of the kick and snare as well to teach students the make-up of what are to become your key tools when building dance tracks, including a technique with white noise demonstrated in the video below. From there a melodic element is added for the first time in basslines, with which you’ll explore the potential of the native plugins in Ableton and Logic. Three separate plugins are introduced and you’ll learn about amping and grouping, as well as how to entwine your bass and drum sounds to get the most from each element. Look out for your first assignment this week too!
Suketu is also the co-founder of The Music Inc (TMI), an electronic music school based in Mumbai.
