It's finally here!
This week we're bringing you another exclusive at Sonic Academy and we're super stoked to welcome a brand new tutor - Washington DC-based producer and DJ, Enamour to guide us through How To Make Ruby - his latest track just released on Anjunadeep’s Explorations 08 which is currently sending positive chills down the spines of those in the Progressive House scene.
With it's beautiful arp lead and constant synth pad drone that takes you to the breakdown before taking off again full speed, Ruby is a 'journey' in the truest sense of the word and Enamour's attention to detail in keeping a fluid motion is in full swing here to create this awesome track.
Starting from a blank canvas, we first lay down the melodic hook before layering the bass and pad sounds and building the varied drum groove. We then move on to a basic arrangement before filling out the overall sound with background ambience and one-shots using clever processing techniques. In the final section of the course, it's all about building tension and movement with extensive automation before mixing down and creating a master ready for the clubs.
The level of detail and care taken into every aspect of this track is mind-blowing, and it's a course packed full of tips and tricks for users of all abilities. We know you'll agree that the end result is a thing of beauty, so what are you waiting for?
Watch and learn from a true professional and take your skillz to the next level!
