My 3 biggest secrets to become an advanced music producer using ableton templates
So today I thought I’d share with you my biggest secrets if you want to become an advanced producer. These will be really beneficials, I’m really happy to share these because you don’t find them often on the internet I guess a lot of people keep these magic tricks for themselves.All our templates include those concepts by the way ;)
Before we get into it, i always like to ask my readers to sit properly on a comfortable chair to take time to read the post properly.
let's go !
1. Parallel Compression :
Parallel compressionParallel compression is achieved by mixing a ‘dry’ lightly compressed signal ( the original audio signal ) with the heavily compressed version of itself.
This way you can reach the sounding you’re looking for. As you can mix both signal in a more subtle way as well as always keeping the original sounding of original audio signal. You don’t wanna lose it, this is why you picked that ( kick ) sample at first right ? Otherwise you end up with an over compressed signal that doesn’t sound like its original sounding and you’ll feel that it doesn’t fit the overall mix.
This approach can be expanded further in music production, it’s the key ! Think dry light signal mixed with its own heavily processed version. It works with all the other effects + + + It Can also be expanded to synthesisers etc… ( see layering pt.2 )
We use parallel compression in all our ableton templates, don’t miss on the opportunity ! Get the free version to see the technique in action and become an advanced producer in less than a minute. Trust me ! This will be really really helpful ;)
Layering is the fact of merging, well layering, several sounds together so that your ear is tricked and seems to hear only one single sound.
If you were to use this approach to Create a bass sound, you would, for instance, layer a sub bass with a low signal bass and a mid-range type of sound altogether and you’ll end up with a strong bass sound that will cover all the low frequency spectrum.
It’s 3 synthesisers playing the same pattern though it’s felt like one single synthesiser doing the job :)
Magic trick !
Once again, layering is an approach we use in all our templates, so don’t miss on the opportunity to see how it actually works by getting your free version right here . Our templates are designed by a team dedicated and successful DJs so it’s a big chance to learn from the greats.
3. Resonance cuts
This is really important and a lot of music producers miss on this. Always look for resonance frequencies !This will clear up a lot of dust and you’ll end up with a cleaner mix.
To achieve it, take an EQ obviously and boost a frequency with the tightest shelf possible.Boost it really hard, the most you can and just start looking for them.Once you hear a frequency resonating really hard invert the process by cutting it and this way you’ll get rid of it.
I think you should always look for these but you might just want to cut them on a bus instead of doing it on each track, although you could ! Up to you ;)
These 3 magic tricks needs to be mastered if you’re willing to become an advanced and successful DJ/music producer.So dive in our free version and become an advanced producer in less than a minute !
Don’t miss on the opportunity, learning from the greats is the best way to achieve your goal :)
