Best tutorial I've watched in a decade.

When you combine Laurence's direct-to-the-point style, his deep experience with trance/techno/house/edm alongside the most exciting synth I've ever used - and I've been doing electronic composition since the days of Opcode Midi-only Vision, you get a simply awesome tutorial. It was so effective and invigorating, that if Laurence taught at a University - I'd probably sign up for the four year degree just cause. So good, I'm actually annoyed it's over - and he covered everything so what does this even mean? Maybe we're all hungry for an Advanced Avenger Techniques now? Anyway, I'll start praying to a volcano that Laurence continues this and does the rest of the Vengeance Producer Suite product line. For now though - if you are a new Avenger user, this tutorial is simply a must watch.

very helpfull

I would like to have a new serie of training going a little deeper intho the things. I am looking for example how to step seq to module the patterns. It seems that with the arpegiatior is limited to 4 patterns ABCD but we should be able to use the step sequence as a modulator of this patterns. Then I should be able to play AAAB, ABDDABBC or patter I like. It was I have been explained by a vengeance tech guy. But I am not able to redo what he suggested me. Please help me with more trainings

great synth, very good review

I own Vengeance Avenger and think it's a great soft synth. I'm ~20% through this video tutorial and think its a very clear and useful tutorial. Avenger is so powerful, it helps to have a walk through. Deducting 1 star because there are already other good (free) extensive tutorials for this synth. That said, make no mistake, this is a very worth while tutorial for Avenger owners or the Avenger curious, and a nice job by the video author & guide.

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!)
