Description : Continuing its extremely popular Dark Room Techno course, Sonic Academy is proud to invite Techno Kirk Degiorgio virtuoso to the brand new How To Make course, and this time it creates a great IDM track from scratch.
Kirk has been at the peak of its fame since the early 90s and is a pioneer of this style, so if you are just starting out or an experienced producer, you know that you are in good hands and this 3-hour easy-to-learn course gives you a professional look creating your own dance track.
Taking his influence from various artists in this beloved genre, Kirk starts with a blank canvas and creates an evolving rhythm using classic 808 samples, and then records the main chord using the helpful Scaler plugin from Plugin Boutique.
Then we add the classic Jupiter 8 and DX 7 sounds for the pads and bass, fill in the percussion by slicing breakbeat before adding the beautiful melody, arpeggio and classic acid line 303.
After the arrangement, Kirk shows us his method of passing everything through the tape emulation, before we take a closer look at the process of mixing it, completing the track, ready to be sent to the master engineer.
