It’s that time of the month again guys!  (No, not *that* time, eww, you’re pretty sick minded…) It’s the 7 day song!

This month, it’s a sponsored 7 day song – I’ve been commissioned to teach the world how to make Darkstep Drum and Bass!   That disgustingly amazing genre that producers like Noisia and Spor are clearly addicted to.

Just click here to go to day 1, where I’ll start by teaching you how to make a darkstep breakbeat!

Day 4 of the 7 day song hip hop tutorial brings two quick and useful lead synths for any hip hop producer, showing some cool techniques like portamento, filter envelope useage and how to keep it real (well, that just comes with using them, naturally).

Day 7 is here!   I’ve concluded the 7 day song trance tutorial with an explanation of how to mix and master trance music and also put the final 7 day song up for you to listen to!

This has been a slog and a half – the 7 day song ended up having 15 videos (If my A level maths is still up to scratch), but it looks to have been useful so it’s all gravy! :)

Thanks for watching the tutorials, guys!   I’ll keep making them if you keep watching :)

In day 6 of the 7 day song trance tutorial, I explain how to arrange a conventional trance song for a club mix, saying which elements I’ve brought in and out to give you some inspiration for your song!

Hope you enjoy it!

Wow, this Trance thing sure does use a lot of techniques!   I’ve had to work like 3 times as hard on this 7 day song since there’s just so much in there!

This time you get to make the track sound more professional with some cool fx, I’ll teach you how to internally route sounds in thor for a cool wooshy noise sound and you’ll get the epic orchestral and choral elements in there too!

PS. Apologies for this going out late – my screen capture software kept being gay!

Here’s a 3 in one for you!   A massive trance lead for those epic breakouts, a plucked trance lead for those buildups and a plinky plonky trance lead for those moments when you just close your eyes and feel the music!

It’s all about those moments :)
