Let me start out this review stating that this class is not for newbies to Ableton, recording or sound design in general. If you're new to Dubstep then you're fine. They aren't kidding when they say you should learn all of or say, most of the, ins and outs of Ableton. I would say I'm intermediate, but I felt like a total newb with this course. I could keep up, but it's a lot of info coming at you. At the end when he goes "it's not complicated" and I'm saying "maybe not on your planet." I would say this is an Advanced class. Again, the info packed in this course is golden. My only complaint is that I believe the mixing and mastering section should have been it's own class just by itself. There was a lot going on and at times I felt it was rather glossed over and rushed towards the end. You do get the files to study on your own, which you will have to do. I've had to go back and relisten to what he's saying because it was so fast and even then, I didn't understand. It's recorded, so I don't know what the rush was to pack it all into 24 videos when I've watched tutorials that had up to 40 and the teacher went at a slower pace. This could mean trouble for people where English isn't their first language.
There are a lot of tips and tricks and ideas in this tutorial series. I'm not a dubsteb producer but got a lot of inspiration out of the tutorial. What I like most about this one is that it uses Ableton live (suite) only and it made me realize that it has everything I need. So I'm using the built in plugins and instruments more often now. Great tutorial for producers who work with Ableton Live!
I really enjoyed this course, and have taken the dub step courses in both logic and ableton. This one seemed to be a little more straight forward, and have room for creativity, I appreciate you going at a speed that wasn't too fast and requiring a lot of rewinding. Great course.
Good...Definitely learned a lot Still not too good at ableton, but getting better thanks to Macprovids Looking forward to growing and being able to express myself more efficiently Thank you
Hi there! I'm Youngbin - Beak Thanks !!!!!!! realy Thank you !!!! :-D
The shortcut tips in the first chapters were especially helpful. I also never heard anyone mention the fact that dance floor mixes need to be mono-compatible to sound good in a club. Thank you!
Great course to learn more techniques and how they work in reality. A lot of equalization is covered here, and how to make your individual parts stand out in the mix.
A nice intro to building/mastering a dubstep tune from scratch with good tips on EQing and basic structure, but with so many outtakes you definitely need to look at project files to fully appreesh.
