Over these courses you will learn the benefits of multiband compression, shaping and timing the frequencies of each sound to get a wider and more powerful sound. You will learn about vocal pitching, side chaining, and how to use multiband compression, limiting, and EQ to improve the overall quality of your final mix. You will also discover the negative effects of frequencies that battle it out for space and how to resolve this issue by making breathable room for each sound. For these courses, Nick is using Ableton. These tips can be applied to any DAW and Ableton is not a requirement for this course, but if you have it feel free to follow along.

Video 1 - How To Make a Jack Ü Style Vocal Lead

Nick Holiday will be your instructor as he walks you through the process of using a lead vocal in the drop section similar to Marshmellow, Jack U, and Skrillex. By sampling the vocal Nick is able to manipulate a small section and apply it the melody of the track. By using effects such as sustain, reverse, and auto-tune you will be able to polish your gem to pristine perfection.

Video 2 - Make Drums Larger Then Any Other Plugin Using Kontakt As Sampler

Forget about Simpler and Sampler. If you want a tight, phat, and stunning kick drum sound use Kontakt. In this course, Nick shows why Kontak is the go-to for drum sounds. This is a surefire way to get results and save time doing it. You will see every step of modification and witness the transformation of a basic kick drum sound as it becomes an unstoppable sound that measures in well above the rest.

Video 3 - Making Fatter Kicks With Creative Parallel Compression

Nick covers the difference in kick drum sounds and styles. How different adjustments affect the sound and then how to make your kick sound fit in with your mix. You are going to be relying heavily on your ears for this course. Nick walks you through each modification and the outcome. By the end of this lesson, you will have no fear of using compression and you will be able to create the right kick for each mix.

Video 4 - New Multiband Sidechain Technique For Max Clarity And Fullness

Nick will show you how to create breathable room for each sound's frequency. The lesson begins with the use of effects on an 808 and kick drum so that they aren’t fighting over the same space.

You will learn how to route to inserts send and return, the properties of the sound wave and how to make proper adjustments. Finishing up with the course you will learn how to apply this technique to vocals and a pluck sound in addition to the kick and 808 sound.

Video 5 - Quick Example Of Real World Multiband Compression

Nick takes you into a live session where he has run into a little trouble. A common issue as there is a  struggle between 2 sounds, the space they occupy, and how they are interacting. In this quick course, you will learn how to improve the relationship between uncomplimentary sounds and how to remove unwanted frequencies by using Multiband compression and an EQ.

Video 6 - Using Track Delay To Relax the Speakers And Get Transparency In Sound

Need things wide and in your face? Nick covers psychoacoustics and how to bring sounds to life. You will learn how to re-create organic timing in digital music. Nick performs modifications in milliseconds of timing to capture a live, in-studio type of experience through the use of track delay. These tips are universal and can be applied to any situation to help create a relaxed space that allows for a wider sound.

Careful !!! The intros and outros of this series are way to high volume and might blow your speakers after you have turned up to listen to tutorial. Definately a major mistake but otherwise they are useful for both beginner and seasoned.
