    Final Mix & Thoughts (10:28)


This is it. If you've ever wondered how to produce a professional, huge sounding Electronic Dance Music track from the beginning, all your questions will now be answered. Chart topping remixer Timothy Allan is back yet again, this time creating an authentic EDM track using nothing but the new Logic Pro X. Although shown in Logic, you can apply the theories and techniques to any DAW or genre. With the included Logic Pro X session files and over 7 hours of video tutorials, this is the most comprehensive Logic Pro X production series available.

Tim starts with an introduction to the series and plays a section of the finished track so you can hear where you'll be ending up. Then he dives right in, using Ultrabeat to create the rhythm foundation for the song, then lays out the chord structure and accents. The all important baseline is next, and Tim explains how to craft one that propels the track forward and also shows how to compress it for that classic pumping EDM sound.

Using the new "Track Stacks" feature in Logic Pro X, Tim serves up giant layered synth tracks for the song, then develops the drum tracks further and adds fills to the different sections. Melody and Pads via the new "Retro Synth" are next on the list and Tim goes in-depth here, explaining further the important elements that make up a world-class EDM track.

Honing and tweaking the arrangement are now shown, and Tim really demonstrates how to fine tune the song's structure and overall sound using many different tools such as automation, compression, reverb, EQ, multi-band compression and much, much more. Please check out the titles and descriptions to the left to see a detailed explanation of each video. There's so much covered in this series, it's like getting a masters degree in EDM Production!

Its strength is its weakness

There are some great tips and tricks in here regarding Logic Pro X - but the length of these videos is daunting.... Some of this is a natural bi-product of EDM, (Video gamers, manipulating sound, for people who don't really like music anyway) But, some it has to do with the fact that the instructor left the "camera" rolling when he shouldn't have... If he were to have made some edits afterword for "instructional" portions - this video would have been world class. But, as it stands, given the amount of time - one could almost learn the same by just messing with the plugins for seven+ hours.....

Response from Customer Service:

Hello and thank you for your review!
Yes, with the amount of information to be covered, this tutorial can seem daunting at first. But because we split the tutorial up in bite sized videos that you can read about on the product page and watch in or out of order. And you can choose the information you want to absorb and how you want to absorb it.
I hope it helps elevate your future projects!

Good enough

I have seen almost all the video's by now and I think I am ready for a review. I am a beginner in Logic Pro X and in EDM so I write it from that perspective. I am satisfied with the video's, but I do not think it is great. It's good. What I like is that these video's shows you the entire process of creating the track from start to finish. I also like the included project file. I kind of followed along with the video's so I created my first EDM track based on the track made in the video's. So in that sense, it is really good. What I missed however is a bit more of explanation. I understand that these video's are not supposed to explain basic Logic functions, but sometimes I wonder why he puts a Compressor on a track etc. I know how compressor's work, but it is just the reasoning behind why for a particular track he chooses to use a compressor with the particular settings. Off course, doing this the whole time would make these video's to long, but a bit more would have been appreciated. I also would have liked to see some arrangement markings in the project files. Especially for beginners like me it would have been very helpfull. Nevertheless, I do not regret buying these video's and I will watch it till the end. I learned a lot from it.

very informative

Just purchased this and not quite finished watching the whole tutorial, but so far I have got a lot of great information. I think this will help me get up to speed with Logic. I have been using Pro Tools, Reason and Live and decided to make the switch from PT as my main DAW and go with Logic, due to Avid going with a subscription platform.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

As a very young kid my parents signed me up for piano lessons. My mom said if I quit that I would regret it later on in life, but I thought piano lessons were boring! Electronic music was a natural progression for me from those early days, it let me combine my love of technology and all things nerdy with a love of loud and strange noises.

2. What training have you had?

I've had years and years of training from a good friend of mine named "The Internet", and before him my other good pal "Trial and Error". 

3. When did you get into recording?

The wonder of synthesis and certain electronic music is that you never really have to record anything if you don't want to! Although I do remember way back in the day recording found sounds on an old garage sale cassette recorder I bought, and using those samples in old school Trackers on the Apple II.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've worked with, and for, a whole bunch of fantastic people so far. Some of the more popular ones include Empire of the Sun, Dirty South, Ash, Paul Oakenfold, Carl Kennedy, Hong Kong Blondes, Loverush UK, Molly Bancroft, Made by Monkeys, Tiff Lacey, Marcie, Offer Nissim and Kirsty Hawkshaw. Madonna chose a track I made for a compilation she released, although she never called or took me for lunch! That really doesn't count as 'working with' does it!?

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I'm good at training people because I remember what it was like to be the newbie, and I try and go over things that I would have found interesting and cool, back when I was starting out. I take the time to learn the techniques inside and out, and then break that down quickly for people.
