Total Course Length 3 Hours of FL Studio & Music Production Skills
Module 1 - Intro, Basics, History
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 Future Bass track to make sure you have a good idea of what you are trying to accomplish when you start making your own Future Bass bangers! This module gets you started quickly even if you are a beginner.
Module 2 - Creating a Killer Drum Loop
Here you will learn how to program an energetic and complete drum section for your Future Bass track. FL Studio makes this process really simple with its drum grid and Colin takes this opportunity to show you the in-built drum samples together with where to find and install third party ones. As well as learning how to make a drum loop you will learn all the basic functions of FL Studio.
Module 3 - Adding Instruments and Creating The Melody
In this third Module you will learn how to load in-built and third party instruments (synths etc.) and how to make your own sounds with them. You will also learn some basic music theory that will allow you to make your own awesome Future Bass melodies. Also in this module Colin teaches you how to make that infamous 'vocal chop' lead sound you hear so often in these types of songs.
Module 4 - Arrangement / Track Structure
This is the one place most people go wrong or need help with the most. Here Colin shows you how to create a dynamic, exciting and interesting arrangement for your Future Bass 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', 'fills' 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.
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 with Mastering.
