    Master Effects (7:39)


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!

Whether you’re new to mixing Future House, or you’re a seasoned Future House producer on the hunt for new mix tips, don’t miss “Deconstructing Future House!”

Decent, but the Same as Others

It seems that Timothy Allen's how-to's are all about the same. This tutorial, "Deconstructing Future House," seems to just be a more-modern version of his older tutorial titled "Mixing Electronic Music" from 2011. In fact, both tutorials are almost identical! Need something a little different but still along the same route? Try "Producing Electronic Music," also by Timothy Allen, but this time using Ableton. Aside from that, a minor technical issue/gripe is that the video "Low End" and others past that point do not auto-load.

Response from Customer Service:

Hello, Thanks for the review! This will really help us out in the future. Yes, there are many similarities in this and "Producing Electronic Music". The main differences is this one focuses on the Future House genre specifically and walks you through the process of looking at each element of the mix and "Mixing Electronic Music" takes you through the process from scratch. As far as videos not auto-playing (and anyone reading this review take note) that is usually a browser issue. Try refreshing your browser, empty your browsers cache and cookies, and even restart your computer. You may find all the videos auto load at that point. We also have a Flash player option if you feel HTML5 isn't working correctly in your browser. Even trying a different browser can be a good troubleshooting exercise. I hope that helps!

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.
