Back by popular demand with another absolute banger we proudly welcome back Scott Lowe from Mescal Kids with an all-new ‘How To Make’ course showing us how they made their high ranking Beatport track ‘Never Knew’.
Starting from scratch, Scott recreates this Vocal Tech House tune with an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide where we build the groove and bassline, chop up the vocals, add synths and effects before arranging out, mixing down and mastering.
The finished track is yet another energetic, groove-laden, soulful classic from Mescal Kids that’s guaranteed to raise the roof!
Just noticed the vocals in the Samples folders are the vocal stems (also in the stems folder). Just wondering if this was a mistake? It would be good to have more of the original vocal to practice making the chops.
Well, I’m still working through the course, but one thing that screwed me up is tutorial chapters 10 and 11 are out of order. Maybe @chris_agnelli can fix that for future viewers. I’ll let you know if there’s anything else.
Hey @MentalState, I think you’re right. I’m using a different kick, but what I found for my kick, in the track I’m building here, is that the EQ, compression, and envelope, along with gain reduction to compensate, made the kick sit better by being less, “thumpy”. It took me a lot of AB’ing with proper gain staging to be cool with it.
The full vocals were not in the course resources for obvious copyright reasons as already mentioned, so I don’t think Mescal Kids would feel very happy reading such request TBH. It’s already a lot from producers to share their knowledge & techniques with us, so simple rule here : don’t steal
That was just me ( forums mod ) quoting Chris previous post
Yes, I got your point and agree that it makes things easier when you have the same sources to follow along with tutorials but well, the important bit is to learn the techniques and being able to apply them using your own material IMO, it’s also the best way to come up with your own original tracks at the end of the day and have the peace of mind to avoid any copyright strike or make “copy-cat” tracks.
That said, for educational purpose and to strictly answer your question, I don’t know if the vocals are from a paid sample pack and which one it is.
