In this course, FL Studio expert Danny Cullen will show you how to sound like Fred Again… and will teach you how to produce a tune similar his track with Swedish House Mafia entitled "Turn On The Light”.
Welcome! In this video, Danny shares a brief Introduction on what will be covered in the course as well as a preview of the finished track he’ll be producing.
Video 1 - Chords
First, Danny creates the main chords for the track using FL Studio’s Piano Roll, Xfer’s Serum, and native FL Studio effect plugins.
Video 2 - Pluck
In this video, Danny adds an introductory pluck sound using FL Studio’s Piano Roll, W. A. Production’s ImPerfect plugin, and native FL Studio effect plugins.
Video 3 - Mean Lead Leayers
In this video, Danny starts building the main lead for the track using the FL Studio Piano Roll, a few instances of W. A. Production’s ImPerfect and Xfer’s Serum, as well as FL Studio’s native effect plugins.
Video 4 - Lead
Now Danny finishes creating the main lead by adding additional layers with Serum and some more native FL Studio effects.
Video 5 - Build & FX
In this video, Danny puts together the build up of the track, adds transition FX, and does some creative editing and slicing using samples and FL Studio’s native effects.
Video 6 - Bass
Now we need to add some low end. In this video, Danny mixes a few layers of Serum to create the driving bass found in the tracks and adds some native FL Studio effects.
Video 7 - Kick
Of course, we’re still missing a very important thing — the kick! In this video, Danny adds a kick and sidechains elements to it to create the necessary pumping effect.
Video 8 - Percussion
Every good song needs ongoing movement and detail work, so in this video, Danny adds some creative percussion and automation to keep things interesting.
Video 9 - Volume Adjustments
Now that we have all our elements, Danny works on gain staging and leveling the different channels to improve the mix.
Video 10 - Mixing
In this video, Danny makes some final edits to the mixer volume levels and bass automation to get the mix sounding just right.
Thanks for watching! We hope you found this video helpful and that it helped you become a better producer today.
