In this course we are looking at layering synth sounds. We are layering synths for basses, leads, pads and saws. Layering helps synths stand out in the mix and deliver more power than single preset sounds.

Video 1 - Layering Leads

When layering sounds for a lead synth it is essential to maintain a strong mono signal and avoid phasing at all costs. A lead synth should sound great in mono as well. By EQ’ing overlapping frequencies and boosting at the right spots we can achieve amazing, unique sounds for our productions.

Video 2 - Layering Basses

The bass synth is one of the most fundamental instruments for the whole mix to feel balanced and full. We split the bass into three main areas and use a different synth patch for each one of those. By adding compression and eq on each patch, we can maintain total control and making mixing decisions easier than ever.

Video 3 - Layering Pads & Harmonies

When layering harmonies, we are taking advantage of the structure of the chords, letting multiple synths play different parts of the same progression. This creates interesting soundscapes that are great for bridges and breaks within your arrangement. We are also adding automation for movement and tension using simple EQ filters.

Video 4 - Layering Saws

The saws in electronic music are one of the most essential parts of the arrangement. The frequency spectrum is dominated by high frequencies and a lot of detuning. To avoid problems in the mixing stage we create a strong mid sound that cuts through the mix, let the reverb run through only one of the synths, and keep the grittiness coming from another synth – ensuring a controllable group of synths that is mix ready for any production style.

Very useful videos with simple and clear explanations, maybe more aimed at beginners or less experienced producers, like me... I specially liked the "Layering Saws" one.
