Product Overview


Production guru Tyler Coffin takes you on a journey into the world of Electronic Music! Designed for the EM newcomer, this series gets your feet wet with many of today’s popular electronic music genres, including sound design tips, production insights, as well as history to base your EM foundations on.

Tyler starts off by discussing the ideas behind the series, as well as how you’ll go about exploring the various styles of electronic music together. You’ll then create a “base song” that you’ll later morph into the various genres covered in the series, so it’s easy to understand the differences between them.

First up, Tyler goes way back and looks at the Classic Electronic styles of the 70s and 80s, including their staple sounds and production tricks. Next, the always popular House music genre is discussed and shown, including some different variations found within the genre.

Techno and Trance music are next, and you’ll learn about what makes these genres stand out on their own, followed by Modern Aggressive EDM and its hard hitting elements.

Tyler then looks at Hip Hop influenced EDM, such as Trap, and how it has roots in Hip Hop and how it has spread to other electronic and rap genres as well.

Wrapping it up, Tyler goes over ways to integrate multiple genre styles so you can blend the different electronic forms together and make your own unique mixture.

A bit lightweight and generic

It's always useful to see how someone layers up a track, and this has some great sound design tips, but I don't think it goes any further than that. The 'Exploring' part of this never really goes that deep, and I personally didn't learn anything new about the different genres. Good as a beginners introduction to different styles maybe, but certainly not essential.

Good Overview

Good overview of electronic music styles. I liked that it didn't waste time covering recording and production basics like eq, compression nor did it go into sound design to any great depth. These topics are covered in great detail in other series. As someone with experience using hardware synths from back in the day, I learned the nuances of techno, trance, trap, house, edm and the like so I can better understand what you crazy kids are listening to today in a more informed way. Now get off my lawn!

I started playing around with music at a young age with garage sale keyboards or whatever else I could get my hands on. My older brothers were very much into bands and guitars, and so I was always around some of the culture. I played alto sax throughout school in the concert, marching, and jazz bands. Browsing through our home computer in middle school, I started playing with music trackers and sequencers that my brothers had installed. From there I found FL Studio, which the demo version we had at that time was still called FruityLoops. It proved to be an excellent passtime for a kid like myself where I could mess around and make some silly little tunes. Through high school and college, I became very well versed in the world of computer audio and all the things that can be done with synthesizers and digital recording. With the growing understanding came a growing excitement for the endless possibilities that I could achieve in music, sound design, and recording. So I kept learning and searching further, where I kept finding that there was always more to learn! 
 
I was, and continue to be, captivated by every step of music production, be it creative or technical in nature. I’ve been fortunate to work under many kinds of production circumstances, whether in a professional studio space such as Mudcat Studios in Utah or getting a professional sound out of various home studios that I’ve used for recording instruments and live bands. I’ve also been able to work on my fair share of electronic music, either solo or with other producers in person or online for collaborations. And now with Groove3, I take great pride in sharing the knowledge and experience that I’ve been so thrilled to accumulate through my diverse journey through music and production. As that journey continues and I continue to grow myself, I am truly thankful that I am lucky enough to help those around me to improve and follow their own passions for music!
