Amazing set of videos. Loved how for the most part everything was truly simple, but in the end, so effective. I think it's very easy to overcomplicate things when making electronic music, but this series really puts things into perspective. Thanks for the insight!
Amazing serie of videos ! By curiosity, what is the key of the track ? Beatport says one thing, Mixed in key another and from what I've seen from the lead and chords, I would say A minor... Could anyone confirm it please ? :)
This tutorial is the reason why i moved back to sonic academy! I'm quite experienced in Ableton and Logic, but sometimes it is nice to see someone going straight trough his poject, focussed on the main idea, choosing the right sounds, working out every element carefully...I found a lot of nice little inspirations, like the conga sound from Ultrabeat. Thanks for sharing that one!
Haha the key thing baffled me, you notice at the start when mr ace is jamming the chords melody its in c# minor - after the first few vids (programming midi in a minor) I was thinking it sounds different (lower). After going on beatport and finding the tune is indeed in C# minor I also then noticed in the lh window all midi is transposed +4 semitones! sneaky - copyright? Or is a minor easy to program in - either way, very confusing at first!
