Ableton Live Basics video course now free on Youtube


My Ableton Live Basics video course (three parts) is FINALLY free and available to ya’ll on YouTube.

Someone once said, you should give something back to your community, and hey, I agree.

It’s been going good for me, and I admit these videos sold pretty dang well when I released them some years ago.

I think the time has come to release them to the general public. Continue reading Ableton Live Basics video course now free on Youtube

Breakbeat Of The Month – a new series starts

I‘m starting a new video series on my Patreon called Breakbeat Of The Month
In each episode, I will pick a breakbeat and chop it up and make a jungle beat with it.
I will always go to the raw source and chop, program and process that (as opposed to an already processed/edited version). This “DIY” culture is important to me.
I have been making jungle and DNB for 25+ years and I want to teach you all too and show you my process.

200th Patreon post! Short Studio Masterclass ep. 4

Welcoming the new year with 200th Patreon post, w000t!

Here is a brand new Short Studio Masterclass video for you (54 mins video).

I’ve been working on a song on my holiday using Bitwig Studio and I’m covering some topics here. The video isn’t very Bitwig-specific.

Also, you will get an unreleased DNB song as a download.
Literally my latest song. If it gets signed, I will remove the link, so act fast.

(I do talk about more things as I go, but these are the main ones):
• Clipping the bass – why?
• Bass XXL Continue reading 200th Patreon post! Short Studio Masterclass ep. 4

Phase Plant bass nuggets! [video]

Phase Plant

I’ve been trying to think of a synth that might be the end-all-be-all tool for me, and I believe I may have found it. I just bought Phase Plant after many recommendations for it, as I was asking around what the best option might be.

Check out my video on it on Patreon.

I am honestly stoked about this synth. What I always do first is work on some basses and see how conveniently that works out, and wanted to make a video of just that. This thing is just great. Modular too. Continue reading Phase Plant bass nuggets!

Let’s make a custom breakbeat

New breakbeat-making class is in session! (50-min video)

Video here!

One thing that’s been on my video to-do list for a long time – and which also has been requested a few times – is creating a custom breakbeat from separate parts. So I wanted to do just that.
On the video, I’m using TAL Drum, which is a great plugin for drums (this is not an ad: I bought it, as I love the company and their great, inexpensive and also free plugins). Not going thru all it offers, but I’ll go thru some of its very handy features.
