Have old electronic music songs that you’ve never finished and are now a little dated sounding? Producer pro Chris Herrera delivers a video series designed to help you take stock of your old songs and productions, and discover ways to make them up to date and relevant again.

Chris starts by welcoming you and gives a brief overview of the series. He then plays for you a track that he created a long time ago, which will be used in the series, and then the final version that has been updated.

You’ll then study the original production and session from top to bottom, figuring out what elements to keep and discard. Once that’s done, you’ll see how to prepare the elements that are being kept for updating and rebirth.

Sound design is next, and Chris shows you how to build custom kicks and a sub bass to go with the new production, as well as get them sounding good together with Master FX treatment.

New elements are now introduced into the production, such as an Acid Synth, Percussion, and Funk Bass, and then Chris suggests some tips for maintaining your direction and how to stay objective.

Throughout the rest of the series, Chris reveals the art of taking stock in a production, using template tracks to help with arranging, applying filter automation, summing while mixing, and more, ending with a modern sounding production.

See the individual tutorial descriptions for more detailed info. If you’re looking for help on resurrecting some of your old productions that had something cool in them, but now need updating, this series will help guide the way… Watch “Bringing New Life to Old Sessions” today.
