This class has a few sections to it because I want to provide in depth knowledge for each topic. I start with creating an arpeggiated synth using NI Massive and ableton’s arpeggiator effect. Next is a atmospheric chord pad also using NI Massive. The next section is mixing these instruments together in an EDM style using the DAW’s audio effects. Finally I explain how layering sounds creates the size heard in EDM music. Create an arpeggiated synth with a unique rhythmic pattern. Try using different oscillators and modulation rates to get your own style. If you want to take it to the next level, mix your synth into a short loop and use noise layers and background synths to create a large atmospherics sound.
