Sonic Academy Dark Techno 2020 with Harvey McKay TUTORIAL
This week we proudly welcome back Harvey McKay for another ‘How To Make’ techno tutorial and again he’s making it Dark!
With its pounding driving kick and filthy gritty synth line created in Repro, this is one for the warehouse. A sinister late-night track for all you techno headz out there.
Harvey keeps it simple building the clips up in Ableton’s session view before arranging them out, recording them live so they can be tweaked further in the arrangement page and then mixing down and fine-tuning.
This course is all about getting great sounds at source level that really pay off when it comes to workflow and getting results fast.
Check it out.
