Following his popular Ableton courses with us, Sonic Academy proudly welcomes back LA based Paul Laski aka P-LASK for his first 'How To Make' course, and this week we're building a groove laden Deep House track from scratch.
Released on Modern Classics, P-LASK recreates his tune 'Bring It Right Back' - featuring hip vocal samples interacting with each other on top of a distinct Garage groove that is sure to evoke Danny Tenaglia like New York loft party vibes.
Starting with a template, we build different grooves in the session view before adding bass lines, the all important jazz style chords, sampled pads, sax and vocals, so we have a variety of loops to choose from.
We then build a selection of different scenes so we can record them live into the arrangement view before going more in-depth to edit and tweak our arrangement into a more structured song.
Finally we add automation to create interest and help with transitions, before mixing down the track and carrying out a self-master so it's ready for the club.
Packed full of tips and tricks from a certified Ableton instructor, we guarantee you'll pick up some new techniques to take your skillz to the next level with this one!
