    The Interactive Multi-Band Display & Band Controls Pt. 1

    In this video, discover the frequency spectrum display, which adds bands and changing crossovers. We'll also explore working with multiple bands simultaneously, as well as changing crossover slopes. Next we'll cover the band controls which allows you to vary processing across the frequency spectrum.

    Drag & Drop Modulation

    Discover the implementation of modulation using drag and drop, which includes routing multiple parameters from modulation sources and source presets.

    The Slider & XLFO Pt. 1

    Now see different ways to use the Slider as well as the LFO parameters which can create rhythmic, filter wobbles, and even pseudo pitched FX with this powerful modulation source.

  • image description 4:46

    The XLFO Pt. 2

    In this video, we continue looking at the LFO features, covering the glide parameter and phase offset.

  • image description 6:14

    The XLFO Pt. 3

    Now see how to create a Trancegate stepped effect using the LFO, leading to an interesting glitchy style sound. Also, see how to utilize multiple LFOs to further mangle the loop.

    Envelope Follower & Envelope Generator

    In this video, see how to add some extra punch to a drum loop by saturating the transients using the envelope follower in Transient and Envelope Mode. Plus, watch how to bring out the bass loop slightly with the envelope generator.

    The XY Pad

    Experiment with morphing between different guitar tones using the XY controller, which allows you to control multiple parameters on an X-Y axis.

  • image description 6:04

    Using MIDI with Saturn 2

    In this video, watch how to use Saturn 2 alongside MIDI to tie your modulation to note on MIDI messages, which allows the envelope generator in Saturn 2 to be triggered over MIDI, as it would be in a synth. This is also achieved using an LFO, to again have MIDI note on message triggering LFO modulation. Lastly, see how to setup the mod wheel to have hands on control over parameters.

    Mastering a Track Using Saturation

    Discover how to use Linear Phase Mode to fix some problems with a pre-master, by applying some compression and saturation to the low mids. We'll then also add in some side processing to add a stereo sheen to the tops. Finally, watch how to add some richness to the low end.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I learnt the trumpet and piano around age 12 and then guitar a couple of years later. I played in a few indie bands for a few years until I discovered the turntables and Dj'ing. I then swapped the guitar for the synthesizer and the stage for the Dj booth and the rest is history!

2. What training have you had?

I completed a diploma in sound engineering and music technology from islington Music Workshop in London. I am also level 1 certified in Logic. The most important training I have received though is sitting for hours on end at my studio making music!

3. When did you get into recording?

Recording demos for the indie bands I mentioned earlier. Then recording vocals for my tracks as DEF inc. and laterally Rebel Sonix. I also worked in London studio Rollover in around 2005.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've remixed Coldplay, Kylie, Roots Manuva and John B. Labels I have released on include Parlaphone, EMI, Fingerlickin, Eight Fx, Quantum, Botchit and Scarper amongst others. I have composed music for Sony Playstation games, Sky tv, J&B Whiskey, Lexus cars and the BBC to name a few. I have produced online tutorial videos and have had a 1 hour production video in Music Techs magazines cover DVD. I have also Dj'ed at events such as Glastonbury festival and Miami WMC and touring extensively all over the world.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Well hopefully I have a clear and concise training method mixed with a serious passion for making music. I have previously worked for Apple teaching Logic and also regularly lecture on Logic and electronic music production. I also teach the Ministry of Sound DJ academy in London which involves teaching an introduction to Djing as well as in depth seminars on using NI's Traktor and also Serato Scratch Live. As a producer making cutting edge electronic music, I have to remain at the forefront of new sounds and production techniques. I mix my time between different areas of the music industry - production, remixing, DJing and also teaching which allows me to develop all those skills simultaneously - so I can improve my teaching ability whilst also continuing to develop as a producer (something which you never stop doing!)
