Tech Tips Volume 32

View Course

This week we’re back with another set of Tech Tips, this time in Logic Pro with new tutor Rory Webb from Hyper Production.

Working under aliases such as Bailey and Knightley which, focuses more on electronic music, Rory has also been involved in sessions with the likes of David Guetta, Adele and Clean Bandit, all but to name a few and gained a significant amount of experience in many fields, from DJ’ing & Producing to Engineering & Teaching! So it’s fair to say, he knows a thing or two about music.

Over these ten videos, Rory looks at some of the fundamental ways you can improve the sound of each element of your tracks so they really cut through the mix. From EQing vocals and creating your own unique layered kicks to understanding the importance of send/return fx and using compression, these tips and tricks will help you get the most out of your tunes and really make them shine ready to be played to a wider audience.

Although this course is in Logic Pro, as with all our courses, these techniques can be applied to any DAW.

Check it out and get the lowdown on how to polish your tracks and make them stand out above the rest!

Another way to do is to set up 2 aux channels up with L/R pitch -10 cents / + 10 cents. Then bus to those channels the amount you want. You can save this in your track template to save you setting up again and again. I’m quite sceptical about the necessity of the stereo spread plugin. Also, why not side chain the delay for more clarity?

good tutorial

I though few clubs have mono PA systems nowadays.

Hi fransva!

Thanks for watching and for your question.

It’s not necessarily the whole club sound system is mono, it’s more that the PA System will sum the low end information to mono. So yes, you’re quite right in saying that most club sound systems are no longer just mono, however is it’s just the low end that gets summed typically.

Hope that helps!
