Product Overview


Music producer and engineer extraordinaire Kenny Gioia brings you a series of video tutorials that walks you through the process of recreating the backing tracks to the pop hit “Broken” by Lovelytheband. See how to build the backing tracks and arrangement to this hit song from scratch. You also get Kenny's session stems as well!

Shown in Reaper but applicable to any DAW, Kenny starts by welcoming you and then presents the song and band you’ll be producing in the vein of. You’ll then start to put down the first keyboard part and arrange the first few sections. The drums are then introduced and you’ll see how to program and edit them to get the sound and feel found in the original recording.

Next you’ll see how to begin mixing the drums, get a better balance, add additional FX, and add a few extra sounds to fill out the production. Kenny then focuses on the bass sound and how to get it sounding just like the one in Broken, followed by the synth and timbale parts. Guitars are then introduced and you’ll discover how Lovelytheband approached them for the Intro and Chorus sections.

The verses are then examined and you’ll see Kenny reproduce them with insight as to how they came together, as well as the all important bridge section. Adding the final touches, you’ll explore how to recreate the reverse effects and ending guitar part, and get a complete play through of the final production.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Superb course with Reaper As good as it gets. Using Reaper to recreate a full song production. Kenny is amazing as a teacher. I hope he makes several of these, the only thing that could have made it better is even more detail into the process of recreating songs. Hopefully the next one will be a song in a different genre!
