A friend brought this one to my attention as we listened to some Deadmau5. This is an excellent technique for adding a bit of seasoning to your beats, especially if you find that things are a bit static. Check out the tutorial for some quick sound design on Pro Tools, which will immediately make this tune a lot more interesting. [Read more]

In this tutorial I’ll be discussing how to design a Clap sound that you can tweak and layer to taste for your tracks. For this example I’ll be using Ableton Live’s Operator. Weird right?

In this tutorial I will be crafting a white noise based swell which will help a tune transition from one section to the next.
