I'm a fan of Tim & Tyler and came here stoked to take this course. Like many of you, I'd imagine, I read the comments first and was disappointed to see so many people pronouncing it rubbish, but I dove in anyway and I am really, really glad I did. Here's my take: there are 2 sides to putting out a great track, there's the creative process of writing the melody (and lyrics if you have 'em), choosing the instrumentation and turning them into a song, and then there's the production of the song, a process that generally takes 'way longer than writing it in the first place. Here, Tim's already got the recipe for the cake, and now he's showing us how he baked it. If you've come here looking for tips on crafting melodies and creating synth patches, yeah, I can see where you'd be disappointed, but as a production how-to, this tutorial is gold. Sculpting individual tracks with EQ and dynamics to make them sit in the mix, bussing tracks and effecting the busses, why you'd want to put your filter ahead of the reverb instead of after, combining 2 bass instruments to come up with a beastly bottom end and then cutting the lows on it bass to make it sound even better... this is great stuff. If you're not already using the dozens of techniques that Tim lays out here, open up whatever track you're working on right now and give 'em a go, I guarantee you'll be amazed, cuz I was. If you want to be a better producer, don't be put off by the thumbs-down reviews; get in there and get some mad skills.
