Product Overview

Sound design pro Thomas Cochran delivers in-depth Future Bass sound design video tutorials that show you how to create the sounds that drive this popular genre, plus gives you the skills needed to create new sounds for your productions. These videos are designed for beginner Future Bass producers or anyone looking for an introduction to how these sounds are made.

Throughout the videos Thomas uses MASSIVE X and Serum, two of the the most popular virtual instruments for Electronic Music production to show you how to craft the sounds that make Future Bass.
