Essential Techno Sound Design by Paul Maddox – ProducerTech – Free Download
Producertech’s resident House and Techno guru Paul Maddox returns to teach some of the most fundamental sound design techniques for creating melodic, rhythmic and atmospheric parts in your tracks. Using entirely Ableton instruments and effects, including many devices brand new to Live 10, Paul makes basslines, leads, percussion, FX and other essential components for producing high quality Techno or House.
Paul has been producing and DJing for nearly 20 years, under his own name and as part of duo Spektre, with his music receiving recognition from revered DJs such as Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin and James Zabiela. Alongside his professional music career, he has also worked tirelessly to pass on his production knowledge by teaching in both physical institutions and online in his highly acclaimed courses for Producertech.
In this course, Paul focuses solely on sound design, showing how the instruments and effects in Live can be used to make the main musical or textural parts in a track. Lesson subjects include how to make a classic drone bass, synth arp and percussive FM leads, polyrhythmic vocals, ambience atmos FX and much more. As well as utilising longtime favourites in the Ableton factory library like Operator and Sampler, Paul also delves into some of the brand new devices in Live, like the Wavetable synth, and Echo and Pedal effects.
