Morgan starts off by welcoming you and talks about what you’ll learn in the series, as well as plays the track you’ll be creating together from scratch. Jumping right in, Morgan starts with sound design, showing you how to create the perfect Kick Drum using Xfer Serum, as well as the cutting Snare Drums found in the tracks of Jack Ü.

Next, you’ll see how to craft interesting dimensional effects to better spread the sound out, deep Basses and effective Bass lines, complementary Percussion parts, and Rhythmic Synth Pads that create movement in the track.

The song’s shining jewel is revealed next, the awesome Vocal track that’s used in the production. See how to process it and balance it just right, along with the background vocals and “Chopped” Vocals, together making a professional sounding vocal based arrangement and track.

Moving on, Morgan now shows you how to build an awesome Drop, with all its instruments, that’s both dynamic and impactful, taking the song to its peak. Further Drum Fills, Risers, Sprays and Transition FX, as well as Arranging are also shown, completing the production side of things.

Finally, Morgan gives you in-depth videos on how to Mix this genre and then Masters it, so it’s ready for all the world to hear. See the individual tutorial descriptions below for detailed info. If you’re into Jack Ü, this series is a must see.

A detailed technical breakdown with many insights

Definitely one of the best tutorial series I have encountered on the site so far. Morgan explains each step in great detail, providing processing tips with relevancy which stretches beyond the realms just EDM. As a beginner myself, would highly recommend to others with a fairly basic understanding of the software who are looking to learn about the nitty-gritty of processing.
