Here, we start our exploration of advanced bus routing by starting with a simple guitar riff and then set up bus channels and delay effects for a simple stereo effect.
Let's dig a little further into our effects options by moving into 3rd party plug-ins. Furthermore, we take our multiple wet channels and sum them for further processing and routing including EQ and bus compression.
Now that our wet signals are summed and treated we will now go into more detail and polish by further routing to Exciter, Flange, and Stereo effects.
Now with a very detailed and dense effects chain we move into adding a touch a reverb for even more sweetness and space.
Here, we look at some simple panning and mixing ideas to level out our sound design, and also look back and summarize how we got where we are to finish of this section.
Chris takes a moment to define what resampling is and its benefits.
Here, we start with an audio drum loop and basic MIDI programming, and look at ways to unify and merge parts in order to bounce in place for further treatments.
Now you'll learn some clever and functional uses of Flex Time and Groove Template to ensure detail and character in our drum loop.
See how to turn your audio loop back into MIDI for import to the EXS24 sampler for further modulation options. We'll also look at creative quantize options to alter the groove and feel of the drums.
See how to double a simple MIDI melody, as well as mix and render settings for further creative processing.
Now that our simple melody is audio, see how to cut, reverse, and fade the part making for more detail and expression than the simple synth MIDI data could provide.
Watch how to sum the audio tracks and look at final processing ideas like sidechain, pitching, and sends. We'll also audition our synth line over a simple groove to demo how effective our design has been.
One of the perks of resampling is that audio can now be treated in many ways that MIDI cannot. Here we'll look at ways to treat a rendered synth part using Flex Time or Melodyne.
Pitch programs like Melodyne and Flex Pitch use similar processing values like Pitch Drift, Formant, and Vibrato. Here we'll look in detail at these concepts and audition their use on a synth part.
Glitching and stutter edits have become more popular in not just dance music but also the commercial realm. Here we look at how tools like Effectrix or Stutter Edit can add interest and life to our resampled synth line.
Wrapping the series up, we'll take a deeper look into
Times have surely changed regarding the way we work with and manipulate audio, as new options and techniques are constantly being developed and explored. Studio guru Chris Herrera bings the first volume of videos focused on these methods, looking at cool advanced bus routing and resampling ideas and practices.
Chris begins by welcoming you, and then gets right at it with videos on setting up bus channels and delay effects, 3rd party plug-ins, summing channels for processing, and building effect chains. Although Chris is using Logic Pro X for these videos, much of the info will apply to your DAW and its tools.
Next you’ll look at some interesting panning and mixing ideas, and then explore what resampling is and how it’s used in today’s productions. See how to take basic drum loops and MIDI parts and bounce them for creative manipulation, including using Flex Time and Groove Quantize.
Moving on, you’ll see how to turn your audio loop back into MIDI for import to the EXS24 sampler for interesting modulation effects, and then how to transform synth lines and parts in a similar fashion.
Then it’s on to resampling with Flex Pitch as well as Melodyne and how to create intricate stutter effects and glitches, as well as other modern sounds and effects.

I belong to *website removed* and composed and submitted about 80 tracks in the past year. Some EDM, some orchestral, indie, rock, whatever the listing asks for. A few of my EDM tracks have been forwarded but frequently I get feedback that my synth sounds are dated and my production techniques not modern. Yet I use the latest synths and current sound banks so what the . . .
Anyway, Chris please do some more videos and dive deeper into advance production technique. You are awesome!
