Course Details

When it comes to dance music, sound design is paramount. Great sounds are the major contributing factor that separates a professional track from others that sound like a bedroom demo. However, while there have been numerous tutorials dedicated to synthesis and sound design, many completely bypass the real world application when it comes to producing professional dance music.

For Sound Design – we cover the entire picture from start to finish. We don’t just walk through the fundamentals of synthesis and expect you to create great sounds, we go in-depth on the techniques that are currently in use by professional producers and artists today, and there is a lot more to it than mixing a couple of oscillators together.

We dig into the three vital areas of sound design for the contemporary dance musician:

The theory and fundamentals of using analog and wavetable synthesis
The practical synthesis application
And finally, the layering and processing that is required to produce the professional results you expect to hear on records today.
