In the Studio with Detlef [UNCUT] TUTORIAL
Do you get bogged down in the technical aspects of music production? If your workflow would benefit from less time tweaking compressor and EQ settings and more time actually feeling the music you’re making, this is the course for you.
Tech house maven Detlef will show you exactly how he gets his beats to bang and his basslines to move, but most importantly, it’s the things he doesn’t do that make this course worth watching. The Greek producer – aka Alexander Georgiandis – may have made waves in the tech house scene, but his no-nonsense production philosophy and less-is-more attitude make for essential watching for producers of any genre.
For more than two hours, you’ll watch as Detlef shows you exactly how his projects are put together, first dismantling his tracks “JayDee” and “Music Please” to show exactly what went into them. Next, he pulls together a whole track from scratch, explaining his thought processes and decisions along the way. You’ll be surprised at how simple the DAW projects are, and how quickly the techniques he used were able to create the sounds in the project.
Although he has some plugins to show along the way, Detlef’s tactics are effective for their simplicity. Most of what he accomplishes is done using Ableton Live’s stock effects and instruments, but these capabilities are provided in every single other DAW as well. Detlef also dishes out some of his tastiest techniques, outlining three ways to make hi-hats and percussion wider, and quick tactics for working directly with audio.
So, get ready to discover the art of simplicity and build the techniques you learn into your own studio projects to make tracks faster.
