FaderPro – DJ S.K.T Track from ScratchLearn key sound design, arranging and mixing techniques while building out a full track in the studio with dance music guru DJ S.K.T
Take your music production skills to new heights, as you join floor-filling DJ and UK Top 40 charting producer DJ S.K.T in the studio for an in-depth guide to making full tracks. Using Apple’s flagship digital audio workstation Logic Pro, S.K.T will take you on a four hour journey from blank project to final mix, stopping along the way to share essential production tips with you that you can take into your own projects.
As many producers will tell you, finishing songs isn’t easy, especially when you’re getting continuously bogged down in the little issues that are bound to arise in any mix. In this course, DJ S.K.T will draw upon all his experience to teach you how to move through a number of common music production processes, including EQing, compressing, limiting and saturating, as well as plenty of creative effects processing.
This course is a unique opportunity to dive right into a studio session with a dance music producer who has put out releases with some of the world’s biggest record labels, including Atlantic, Universal, Ministry of Sound and Toolroom. Starting with just a folder of stems, S.K.T will lay out an invaluable strategy for starting and finishing arrangements, mixing as you go, and directing a project towards the final goal of exporting out a final version.
You’ll learn how to use a wide range of plugins too, as DJ S.K.T uses each stage of the production process to demonstrate production techniques with his favourite tools, from calibrating your monitors at the start of your session, processing sounds with effects during the mix and mastering at the final hour. By seeing how music software is used in the context of an actual mixing session, rather than looking at each plugin in isolation, you’ll get a better sense of how to use it.
