The Technique range of tutorials are aimed at producers who want to understand the theory and practical application of music production in general. This range includes tutorials on the theory and practice of different forms of synthesis through to mixing and mastering and remixing.
This course focuses on the methods and production techniques behind writing, engineering and producing a professional remix for club and radio airplay. Here, we introduce yet another first for music production tutorials by remixing a top-selling commercial music track. Throughout this tutorial, we remix a top 40 commercial hit from start to finish – a track our production company was previously requested to remix for promotional purposes and have kindly been given permission to once again access the original multi-track files for the purpose of this tutorial.
Recorded over a period of a week, the DVD runs through the creation of a professional remix from a blank sequencer to the final arrangement and has been edited and split into sessions divulging the vital topics you should consider when remixing. These include aspects such as considering the original direction, what record companies want, the market, what to listen out for, key signatures, transcribing structures, tuning, time-stretching, pitching, the manipulation and re-interpretation of motifs, maintaining feel, drum timbres, bass conception and execution, leads, audio manipulation, vocal editing, processing, effects and remixing arrangement techniques.
In addition, we also discuss how to start remixing and the tricky subject of copyright and remixing fees. And all in the detail and real-world application you’ve come to expect from us at Dance Music Production. This tutorial also includes project files and MIDI (but does not include the original commercial multi-tracks).
