    Introduction

    Timothy welcomes you to the series and discusses how he will be building his Future House track.

  • image description 2:38

    Housekeeping

    Let’s do a bit of interface tidying, sidechain setup, control bar config, and project setup before we get started making any noise.

  • image description 6:45

    Drummer

    Let’s dive deep into the background plugins of the Logic Drummer methodology to see how to replace individual samples, channel strips, or entire kits.

  • image description 4:00

    Drummer MIDI

    We take the routing and pattern basics of what Drummer provided us with and turn it into normal MIDI that we can manipulate.

  • image description 7:52

    Humanizing the Drums

    In this video we use velocity changes, ghost hits, and getting hits off the grid - We’re also introduced to the List/Event editor which gives you absolute control of all your drums.

  • image description 6:13

    Dear Drums: We're Splitting Up

    It is easy to take a single MIDI region, and separate it into various parts to give us a better view of our arrangement.

  • image description 4:56

    Ride Sidechain

    We add in a ride cymbal and learn how to set it up with our fancy sidechain setup from the first video.

  • image description 8:02

    Gritty Top Lead

    Learn how to program a top end patch from scratch in Logic’s Alchemy synth - You’ll start from the basic init patch and add on some Additive and Formant oscillators to make a pretty gritty top end synth.

  • image description 2:49

    Bass

    Add a sub layer for your Future House/Future Bass lead and set up multiple synths to play the same MIDI part.

  • image description 7:13

    Make a Lead Riff

    In this video we add a bit of processing to the low end, and create a MIDI riff to be played by the main lead and bass.

  • image description 10:25

    Riff Groove

    We revisit the top lead, adding some distortion and reverb, then adjust some of the envelopes to suit the new riff we programmed in, and finally add in a secondary oscillator.

  • image description 5:11

    Cheater Chords

    Here we take a look at how to instantly become a keyboard master by using the Chord Trigger MIDI effect.

  • image description 6:52

    FX Pt. 1

    In this video we create an audio file of white noise to use as ammo in our FX arsenal.

  • image description 5:30

    FX Pt. 2

    Learn how to generate FX that people have never made, using the wonder and magic of randomization and the Logic ES2 synthesizer.

  • image description 5:11

    FX Pt. 3

    After a brief overview of the FX generated in the last video, discover cool tricks on how to re-use them.

  • image description 6:52

    Automation & Arrangement Pt. 1

    We begin by automating some fills and roughing out an arrangement.

  • image description 14:05

    Automation & Arrangement Pt. 2

    Spice up your automation with the Automation Curve tool, and you’ll also see how you can manually adjust your automation points using the Event List.

  • image description 7:25

    Automation & Arrangement Pt. 3

    We use some of the random FX we generated in the previous video to generate build up FX and create tension to lead us out of the breakdown.

  • image description 10:02

    Hat Variations

    Add variation and a sample change to our hi-hats.

  • image description 5:35

    Snare Fills

    Learn a bit about the MIDI Transform function and how you can use it to easily bend and manipulate MIDI note lengths to your will.

  • image description 13:56

    Play Through

    Play though the track in order to pick up inconsistencies and issues with the way the track flows.

  • image description 14:46

    Mix Tweaks Pt. 1

    A few simple mix tweaks can get rid of the ‘wet sweater over the speaker’ sound that can happen with lead sounds.

  • image description 12:29

    Mix Tweaks Pt. 2

    After making a few notes after a good listen on the monitors, Tim goes over what mix changes need to be done to bring the general mix of the track up to scratch.

  • image description 10:10

    Master Bus Plug-Ins & Final Listen

    Time for a few final tweaks, as well as applying a little multi band compression and EQ to the master bus.

a SMIDGE good

I liked this video because it didn't get overly deep into processing sounds and effects, it just gets on with making the music!! my one negative comment has to be that its a bit too much based around logic. Timothy Allen is a great tutor, he's easy to follow, easy to understand, great knowledge and he puts some humour into it aswell, making music should be fun! not like a day job.

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.
