Chapter 2 : Starting The Track

  • image description 15:28

    Bright Keys

    Thomas starts off the track by creating a bright keyboard patch that will be used as the basis for the whole song. This video also shows how to make simple, yet interesting chord progressions.

  • image description 14:12

    The Drums

    This video covers how to make a drum machine inspired set that can be used to provide the rhythmic foundation for the track, as well as covers basic processing to make the drums sit right in the mix.

    The Bass

    Lean how to create a classic Juno 60 inspired pluck bass sound, and how to fashion more interesting baseline patterns by using rhythmic variation.

Chapter 3 : Adding Layers

  • image description 8:06

    Soft Keys

    See how layering synthesizer keyboard patches can make dynamic song structures. This synth patch also utilizes some interesting modulations to make more interesting key patches.

  • image description 7:01

    Portamento Pad

    Brass Lead

    Learn how to use the envelope to control the pulse width of the square wave to create dynamic brass stab sounds. This is a quick way to make more convincing horn patches.

  • image description 9:30

    Fill Arp

    This video covers how to make a lead arp fill for the different sections of the song. This stacked sound utilizes oscillator layering and modulation to create a simple, yet dynamic, arp patch.

  • image description 14:02

    Dark Arp

  • image description 13:58

    Reverb Clap & Hats

    Thomas reveals how to make a simple reverb clap sound and also a hi-hat from scratch. Hi-hats can easily be made on the Tal-U-N-LX using the envelopes and some clever eq processing. See how!

Basic but interesting Synth Programming

Making patches and selecting the instrumentation for the song was interesting and a good tour of the synth. But I cringed whenever the instructor incorrectly talked about his choice of scale/chords/notes.

Thomas Cochran electronic musician and multi instrumentalist from Austin Texas, who now lives in Los Angeles. He focuses on creating electronic music that features both ambient and classical influences.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing music at a young age, starting with classical guitar. This started my love for music and eventually expanded into learning other instruments as well. To date, I have had over ten years of classical experience and training as well as additional instrumental experience.

2. What training have you had?

I grew up studying classical guitar and composition and eventually started applying my classical knowledge to learning other instruments as well, ranging from violin, cello, keys, and drums.

3. When did you get intro recording?

I got into recording out of necessity when me and some friends started a band back in high school and couldn't afford studio time. Through this, I learned about music production and recording and haven't looked back since.

4. Why are you so good at training people?

I love learning about the technical aspects of music production, this helps me understand the how music production works under the hood. I have also worked for several years creating music production tutorials online.
