Introduction to the EDM-focused theory and practice that we’ll cover in this course.
This video explores phrasing and how EDM tracks are structured.
You have many tools available to help with structure and arrangements, locators and color coding.
Kick drums are massively important in EDM, and this video explains the key components of those kicks.
This video demonstrates using fades with kick samples, then how to make a kick drum from scratch.
We discuss creating melody variations, counterpoint melody, syncopation, and arpeggios.
This video covers the tools to help you write synth parts, demonstrates some midi writing shortcuts, and explores arpeggiators.
Let’s explore the kick-bass relationship, then how harmonics work and how this effects sound design and mixing.
You can use sidechain compression to control the kick-bass relationship, then distortion and filtering to shape harmonics.
This video will teach you how builds work in terms of timing and tension.
Let’s create a build from scratch using the theory outlined in the preceding video.
This video shows you how to write parts ‘off the grid.’
There are different ways we can add groove, including drum loops, recording, midi editing, and effects.
What are reverb and delay, and how do we use them in EDM?
This video demonstrates how we can creatively use reverb, and also shows how to use two standard delay types.
Let’s explore the uses of sound effects in EDM music: guiding the listener, filling up the mix, and building anticipation.
This video demonstrates some tricks when using sound effect samples, and how to make a sound effect from scratch.
This video looks at dynamics—and sometimes the lack thereof—in EDM.
We can shape dynamics using limiters and compressors.
Let’s talk about the stereo image, and how to approach it in EDM.
This video explores tools available to shape the stereo image, including panning and unison.
There are two different approaches for songwriting in EDM.
We end the series with a demonstration of useful automation techniques and audio routing workflows.
Adam Pollard aka Multiplier returns with a powerhouse 3-hour tutorial series that teaches you the important fundamentals of EDM songwriting and production. Experience and learn how to create your own pulsing, grooving, and inspiring EDM Tracks!
The series begins with a primer on EDM structure and arranging. After a video on organizational tips on keeping your project color coded, Multiplier spends a few videos exploring both the impact and design of Kick Drums in EDM music. That leads directly into a few videos on writing Synth Parts.
Multiplier then explores the use of Bass in EDM and how to go about designing the perfect EDM Bass Sounds. With Kicks, Synths, and Bass covered, Multiplier discusses more production related elements of EDM music, with videos on Builds, Groove Quantization, Processors such as Reverb and Delay, and Sound Effects.
Moving on Multiplier delivers some “big picture” videos on the importance of Stereo and how Stereo Width enhances the listener’s experience of your track, and how different approaches to EDM songwriting create different outcomes.
Finally, Multiplier demonstrates a few Automation Tricks and Audio Routing Options to add that final polish before your song goes out into the world.
