    Saturation with Devil-Loc & Decapitator

    Larry demonstrates how to use the Devil-Loc and Decapitator plug-ins to bring life to a mix, allowing you to create space in the low mids by pushing things up in the speaker. See how to use the Tone Controls on Decapitator in parallel to create pockets of frequency density.

    Saturation to Tame Transients & Increase RMS

    See how to use Decapitator and Radiator to increase RMS and perceived volume, while simultaneously decreasing peak levels on a dance track. This is audio wizardry courtesy of the wonderful process of saturation!

    Spatial Effects Pt. 1

    Discover how to use Echoboy to add a nice slap delay effect to a vocal. We then continue to use Crystallizer as a lovely vocal doubler, adding depth and stereo width to the vocal, as well as use Microshift to add a chorus effect to a guitar.

    Spatial Effects Pt. 2

    In this video, we start off using Echoboy Jr. and Little Plate to create a nice plate reverb with pre-delay for our Tech House clap, and then get freaky by adding 2 Little Alter Boys and a Little Microshift to manipulate our vocal sample. Finally, we utilize Primal Tap to create stereo delays and a chorused guitar effect.

    Rhythmic Effects

    Explore how to get creative with Tremolator, creating cool guitar tremolo effects and a ?Trancegate? style effect with the rhythmic editor. We then go on to apply Panman to add movement to our FX loop, and program a rhythmic pan loop using Rhythm Step. Finally we use Rhythm Step to rhythmically alter our pan position.

    Filtering with FilterFreak

    In this video, see how to use FilterFreak to add classic high pass and low pass sweeps to a Disco House track. We then use FilterFreak?s analogue modes to add grit and fatness to a drum bus. Our Disco House track then receives some envelope following filter modulation to add lots of funky movement toit. We also try the rhythm editor to create extra interest in our Tech House track, and finally, enhance a snare in the rock track using FilterFreak 2.

    Phasing Effects with PhaseMistress Pt. 1

    Explore phasing some 909 hats and a vocal FX loop to add movement. We then apply PhaseMistress on our chords, and finally add PhaseMistress to our reverb returns of our clap sound.

  • image description 9:09

    Phasing Effects with PhaseMistress Pt. 2

    In the second video on PhaseMIstress, we take our rock track and phase out the washy guitar pad, and then add a rhythmic phased sound to the slide guitar. Next, we use PhaseMistress to phase our whole track, creating cool sections and adding excitement.

    Adding Dynamic Movement to Your FX

    In this video, we use Filter Freak, PhaseMIstress and Crystallizer?s dynamic threshold controls to dynamically effect our audio, adding that all important groove and rhythmic interest.

  • image description 5:38

    Experimental Effects Pt. 1

    See how to turn an acoustic guitar part into a washed out blissful soundscape using an effects rack consisting of Crystallizer, Echoboy and Microshift. We then completely mess up our Tech House track with Primal Tap, creating some mad stutter edit effects.

  • image description 12:44

    Experimental Effects Pt. 2

    In this final video, we create an evolving filter delay effect which sounds amazing as a special effect, using Echoboy, FilterFreak, and Decapitor.

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!)
