Excellent advice from an experienced producer that goes far beyond the simple use of FX plugins

Questions that will be answered by this course: - Do I really need another chorus, phaser, distortion, or frequency manipulator? - How do I build a song from scratch? - How does an experienced producer and sound designer use these effects in modern music production? - I have some good musical ideas but how do I put them all together in a basic arrangement? - What are some basic mixing techniques that I can apply to my instrument parts? I LOVED THIS COURSE As a user of Native Instruments Komplete 12, the number of included plugins is impressive but the thought of learning how to use each of them is quite daunting. As a producer and sound designer, my first thought about the new NI’s effect plugins was, “why do I need these?” The sound design possibilities of these plugins facilitates a level of creativity that reaches beyond the traditional uses of these types of plugins. Fabio shows how to apply NI’s effects to your drum samples to bring up the quality of your beats. He also shows how to apply them to instruments in a way that can lends itself to producing sample loops and extra melodic tracks you may not have considered in your original compositions. Overall, what I loved about this course was the creation of a song from start to finish. Sprinkled throughout the course are dozens of real-world tips that facilitate smarter workflows, workarounds to common problems, creative advice, and good practices. I found a huge amount of value from this course. Thanks Fabio!
