Sample Module - Designing Leads for the Drop

Course Breakdown

Module 1 - Drums

The main drums elements are imported onto the timeline and laid out to form the basic structure of the track.

Module 2 - Main Hook & Bass

After importing a MIDI pattern for the main hook and using it to play a Kontakt instrument, a bass is designed from scratch with Serum. Both parts are then added to the beats in the arrangement.

Module 3 - Vocal Chops

Kontakt instruments are used to add vocal chops to the arrangement. Melodic lines are created and different effects used to process and mix the sound.

Module 4 - Intro Melodies

The main chords hook is used as a basis for 3 different melodic sounds, which are all designed from the ground up with Serum to form the intro of the track.

Module 5 - Break Melodies

More instrumental parts are added to create further textures and melodic elements in the break sections. These sounds include a guitar, piano, pluck and strings, designed with Serum and VPS Avenger synths.

Module 6 - Drop Arrangement & Sound Design

An engaging new lead is designed for the drop section, and the bass is given some additional layers to help it stand out in the mix.

Module 7 - Optimising Performance

Some tips are given for improving CPU load in a big project, including adjusting instrument settings and Ableton Live audio preferences.

Module 8 - Adding FX

An abundance of effects samples is added to the arrangement to improve transitions, atmosphere and flow, including ambience, sweeps, risers, percussion, impacts and lots more.

Module 9 - Mixing Part 1 - Drums

The drums are processed with a number of effects, including saturators, dynamic shapers, filtering and EQ.

Module 10 - Mixing Part 2 - Drop Melodies

The Cyborgs continue mixing parts, moving onto the drop elements, with bass, marimba, vocals and the drop lead.

Module 11 - Mixing Part 3 - Break Melodies

Effects are applied to the remaining parts, with compression, saturation, EQ and filtering used to process the melodic elements in the break section.

Module 12 - Final Mixing & Automation

Automation is added to several of the main parts to help them develop throughout the arrangement. Fills are added, additional effects applied and also some master channel treatment to help balance the dynamics.

Module 13 - Mastering

A detailed look at how to master the arrangement using iZotope Ozone.

Bonus Module - Creating Melodic Elements from Scratch
