Product Overview

In this music production tutorial series hit dance music producer Timothy Allan deconstructs a Future House track, showing you exactly how every element of a Future House song contributes to the final result. Shown in Logic Pro X, but applicable to any DAW, you’ll learn how to make Future House music and what it takes to get amazing results.

After introducing the track that he’ll be deconstructing, Timothy begins with exploring what makes Future House drum tracks work. He shows you how each drum is built up with effects, and how to get the balance between effects and volume, and how best to use a sidechain compressor with drums. Tim then analyses the track’s lead sound, breaking it into its three component elements and shows you how to use effects, both audio and MIDI, to add to the tonal quality of the whole. That leads into a demonstration of how white noise builds can smooth out your transitions.

The final three videos cover using effects to tie elements together, blend the entire song, pan everything around, and make sure the final sound is exactly as pumping as it should be!
