Total Course Length 3 Hours of FL Studio & Music Production Skills
Module 1 - Intro & Setting Up
After a short intro your Tutor Colin will take you through setting up FL Studio correctly and installing third party plugins and samples - all free :) Colin will also teach you about the basic components of a Martin Garrix style track to make sure you have a good idea of what you are trying to accomplish when you start making your own EDM bangers! This module gets you started quickly even if you are a beginner.
Module 2 - Creating The Melody
In the next module, Colin starts with the all important melody and riff. It's paramount that you create a catchy hook here and Colin teaches you how to do it Garrix style with some basic music theory thrown in. He then goes onto sound design where he starts to fatten up that lead sound by using 3xOsc FL plugin. He doesn't select a preset but teaches you how to do it yourself and also adds an interesting twist of his own.
Module 3 - Creating The Bass
In this third Module you will learn how to make a Garrix sounding distorted bass line from scratch. Again learning and doing it yourself is the best way so more sound design in the 3xOsc built in plug in is called for here. He shows you how to EQ the bass effectively and add distortion the right way to make it fatter and jump out. For the intro and outro sections, Colin moves onto to teaching you how to make his classic, energetic arpeggiated bass sound, again with in built tools.
Module 4 - Drums and Track Structure
After showing you how to program in a cool drum loop using 3rd party samples (included) Colin moves onto the one place most people go wrong or need help with the most - the structure. Here Colin shows you how to create a dynamic, exciting and interesting arrangement for your Garrix track. Using lots of different techniques and spicing up your arrangements with a fat build up and breakdown section will become second nature by the time you are done. All the while Colin teaches you how to mix and balance all the different elements together.
Module 5 - Adding Sound FX
Module 5 and Colin goes about filling out the track with the all important sound FX. If you don't have 'whooshes', 'impacts', 'fills' 'downsweepers' and 'risers' then you have a lifeless track that will not hold the interest of the listener or get those feet moving on the dance floor. Colin teaches you what types of sound to source or create yourself and how to fit them seamlessly into your track. Again you're learning how to balance the frequencies and where to fit them into the arrangement for maximum impact. He also shows you how to make your own sounds and Garrix style reverse reverb.
Module 6 - Mixing & Mastering
No-one is going to want to listen to your track if it's not balanced and sounding clear, with maximum energy. Colin teaches you many techniques here to achieve this, such as correctly applying EQ, compression, panning and reverb. As the secret to mixing is all about balance you will learn to do this on many levels. Automating your mix is vital aswell to keep the interest of the listener engaged and to finish with a more pro sounding mix. Colin takes you through all of this along every step of the way. He finishes up with the final polish which is called Mastering.
