    Session Preparation

    In this video, we play through the track we will be mixing and also quickly print stems to work with using "Bounce Tracks in Place", choosing what processing to include and what to remove.

  • image description 14:06

    Gain Staging

    Here we demonstrate how to set input levels so that plug-ins behave appropriately and there is enough headroom to mix effectively. This is done for percussive and sustaining sounds, including a demonstration of pre-fader metering in Logic.

  • image description 13:55

    Mix Volumes

    Now we'll set our kick drum level and mix everything around that, and aim for a master bus level of -6.

  • image description 15:47

    Subtractive EQ Pt. 1

    Get an outline of the principles of Subtractive EQ. In this video we'll continue to process the drums to ensure the removal of any unwanted frequency content, while preserving the integrity of the original sound.

  • image description 13:31

    Subtractive EQ Pt. 2

    The EQ process is now continued, this time focussing on the sustaining elements like the piano, leads, vocals and fx.

  • image description 10:12

    Pre-Processing Automation

    Now we'll do some quick level automation of the vocal pre-compressor, to make sure we get a nice even compression sound that is consistent.

  • image description 5:27

    Transient Shaping with the Enveloper

    See how to sculpt the attack and sustain portion of one drum break to make it better sit behind another break, creating some front to back perspective. This is done using Logic's Enveloper which allows us to slightly remove the transient and reduce the sustain time.

  • image description 10:19

    Staging Compression Pt. 1

    In this video, we introduce some very important concepts for compression. Using 2 compressors, watch how to change the font to back perspective of two sounds in the mix, by utilizing the compressor's attack and release times with musical values.

  • image description 10:39

    Staging Compression Pt. 2

    Next up, we add in some staging compression to the drums, starting out on a bus to set the correct attack and release times before copying individual compressors on each drum element. Using this method we're able to use compressors to determine how upfront or held back overall drums are.

  • image description 12:32

    Staging Compression Pt. 3

    In our final look at staging compression, we'll work on our more sustaining sounds including bass and fx, and again dial-in the front to back perspective of our mix.

  • image description 6:50

    Vocal Compression

    Vocal compression is covered in this video with 3 compressors being stacked up to shave off transients, control the volume, and increase density. Lastly, an Opto setting is called upon for a bit of extra tone and vibe.

  • image description 11:15

    Additive EQ Pt. 1

    In this video, we implement the "Pultec EQ trick" on the kick and bass to transform and re-design the bottom end of the mix. This is done using the amazing Logic Vintage EQ Collection.

  • image description 5:44

    Additive EQ Pt. 2

    Here we continue applying additive EQ on the marquee sounds in our mix to create extra separation. We use the 3 different flavors of vintage EQ to create contrast between elements.

  • image description 5:23

    Vocal EQ

    Now we'll again call upon the tube EQ setting to add 100Hz body and 12k air to our lead vocal. We'll also dial-in a bit of mid range bite at 1.5k.

  • image description 9:16

    Early Reflections

    In this video, we introduce using Early Reflections as a "dry reverb" to create depth and space in the mix without washing out and clouding the mix. This is done using Logic's Chromaverb with the mix set to 100% Early Reflections.

  • image description 6:32

    Vocal Spatial Effects

    Now we'll combine a Haas Effect style process using stereo delay and chorus to create a wider, thicker and more upfront vocal sound. Following on from this, we'll add some traditional stereo delay to enhance the space that our vocal sits in.

  • image description 11:48

    Reverb

    Next up we'll add reverb to the mix. We'll chose our places carefully to ensure we don't muddy things up, and instead give space to the sounds that need it. Reverb is added to the clap, the vocals, and the piano, using different decay times and pre-delay to create the correct size and space.

  • image description 12:30

    Parallel Processing

    Here we continue the mix by adding parallel chains which combine EQ, compression and saturation, to really enhance the imaging and focus of our sounds. This greatly helps bring together all our processing that has been added thus far. The mix as a result becomes denser and bigger.

  • image description 10:35

    Bus Processing

    In this video, we'll now use compressors on our busses to gel sounds together, add hype, front to back depth and groove. We do this using Logic's amazing compressor on an SSL style setting, varying attack and release times to better separate the stems. A limiter is then used to catch transients allowing us to prep the track for mastering.

  • image description 9:10

    Adding Remix FX

    This final video covers using Logic's Remix FX plug-in to add filtering and reverb to the mix bus. This creates extra movement in the arrangement helping make things more exciting!

off course a good producer and everything is done okay so far - BUT....

... please don´t hate me for my honest words and please don´t take it as a peresonally criticism. since I am one of the very first clients of groove 3 I have the feeling that in the last two years the quality of the music files is much lower than in the beginning. also in this videos this is musidc that does not fit to the quality that we all need to produce for to get successful radio or club performances. Many of the used tracks really sound (sorry!) poor and childish and do not help to make productions that can compete with really professional produced songs. nevertheless the dudes and instructors are surely well educated and do their jobs very well.

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!)
