    Introduction

    Timothy welcomes us and discusses what he will be covering in the following videos.

    Logic Drummer Fills

    Here we'll investigate how to use the generative properties of the Logic Drummer to create an unlimited amount of professional sounding drum fills, even if we aren't using a Drummer plugin in our existing track. We'll also see how to incorporate some EQ, distortion, and clipping FX in order to blend the fills into our existing genre of track.

    Drummer Tweaks Pt. 1

    In this video we learn a technique for blending drum kits to generate drum fills that would be impossible to do with only a single kit.

  • image description 7:40

    Drummer Tweaks Pt. 2

    This video will show you some couple cool ways to use the generated fills of the Drummer in other programs and sound generators, using the power of General MIDI. We also cover a very important gotcha you should be aware of when making changes to Drummer generated MIDI.

    Builds with Existing Content

    Sometimes to make a great riser or build, all you need is to change things you've already made. In this video we take a look at the controls on the Retro Synth which are going to give you the most bang for your buck in generating a great buildup.

    Smart Controls for Lazy Buildups

    Here we see how to do what we previously did manually, automatically using Smart Controls. Using the controls, we're able to get a much more organic and smooth automation which can be used throughout the track. We also see a few insights on how to fix up a couple of quirks you may encounter using the Logic Smart Controls.

  • image description 11:20

    Pitched Risers Pt. 1

    The staple of the dance music world, a good riser can make or break the build up of your song. We look at using pitch bend and various audio effects to create a side chained MIDI based riser in the key of our song.

  • image description 7:14

    Pitched Risers Pt. 2

    Here we take a look at how to do pitched risers in Audio if you don't have access, or don't want to use MIDI and pitch bend. There's a few hidden gems in Logic's plug-in areas and we use one of them to get our audio to bend to our will!

    The Panther Fill

    Named after the jungle cat because it sneaks up on you when you least expect it! We'll see how applying reverse effects to existing sounds can be extremely effective when it comes to creating tension and builds in your track.

  • image description 7:18

    Accent FX

    In this video we check out the Tremolo and Autofilter plugins, and how they can easily add that extra bit of motion and spice to your builds and fills. They're also a great way to allow you to reuse your existing fills and builds without sounding like you've just copied and pasted.

Product Overview


Dance music master Timothy Allan is back with a tutorial on how to make your dance tracks pop! Builds, fills, and creative use of effects are what separate an exceptional dance production from the rest, and Timothy shows you how to use Logic Pro X's powerful dance-oriented features to make your dance tracks keep people on their feet.

Timothy starts with showing you how you can use the built-in Drummer in Logic Pro X to create top-notch sounding Drum Fills, including Using Effects, Blending Kits, and how to use the Generated Fills feature.

Next, Timothy tackles Build ups, showing you how you can take your existing content and use Smart Controls to create interesting and dynamic build ups.

From there, Timothy gives you 2 videos exploring advanced techniques for making Pitched Risers,and ends with 2 more videos explaining some of his favorite tools, the "Panther Fill" that uses Reverse Effects to create tension and accent effects to add motion and spice to your production.

Whether you're just beginning to create dance music or an established producer looking for advanced techniques, "Builds, Fills, & FX in Logic Pro X" has something for you!

Exactly what I've been looking for!

I used to mess around Reason years back, so jumping into Logic was a whole new world for me. I always had the basic understanding of how a DAW works, but all the little key commands and such are always a bit different compared to other DAWs. This is tutorial is giving me the crash course I needed towards modulations and FXs.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

As a very young kid my parents signed me up for piano lessons. My mom said if I quit that I would regret it later on in life, but I thought piano lessons were boring! Electronic music was a natural progression for me from those early days, it let me combine my love of technology and all things nerdy with a love of loud and strange noises.

2. What training have you had?

I've had years and years of training from a good friend of mine named "The Internet", and before him my other good pal "Trial and Error". 

3. When did you get into recording?

The wonder of synthesis and certain electronic music is that you never really have to record anything if you don't want to! Although I do remember way back in the day recording found sounds on an old garage sale cassette recorder I bought, and using those samples in old school Trackers on the Apple II.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've worked with, and for, a whole bunch of fantastic people so far. Some of the more popular ones include Empire of the Sun, Dirty South, Ash, Paul Oakenfold, Carl Kennedy, Hong Kong Blondes, Loverush UK, Molly Bancroft, Made by Monkeys, Tiff Lacey, Marcie, Offer Nissim and Kirsty Hawkshaw. Madonna chose a track I made for a compilation she released, although she never called or took me for lunch! That really doesn't count as 'working with' does it!?

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I'm good at training people because I remember what it was like to be the newbie, and I try and go over things that I would have found interesting and cool, back when I was starting out. I take the time to learn the techniques inside and out, and then break that down quickly for people.
