Electronic music producer pro Chris Herrera puts Deep House on the operating table and dissects it right before your eyes and ears. Watch and learn how to make authentic Deep House by identifying and understanding all the elements that make up this popular electronic genre. Chris begins by welcoming you and goes over what the series will be about and plays the song you’ll be dissecting in the video series. Once you’re familiar with the material, Chris breaks down and analyzes the stems that make up the different parts of the track, and talks about which ones are working and which aren’t and why. The drum mix is next, and together you’ll put it under the microscope, revealing the importance of detailed sound design work when building a groove, and then dig deep into the classic 4 on the floor kick drum.
Percussion parts and effects, bass guitar and bass synth relationships and mix, parallel compression usage and application, and general effects are all then gone over in-detail, shedding light on the magic that’s used to bring this genre to life.
Moving on, Chris then dives into examining the arrangement and how 4, 8, and 16 bar phrases are used to build the song up and down, as well as all-mighty breakdown section.
Wrapping it all up, Chris finishes up the series by looking at master channel plug-in chains that go from from very light and limiting, to heavy duty sonic plug-in combos that really make the music move and come alive.
As a bonus, Chris has included the stems to a different Deep House track so you can use the dissecting skills learned in the series and look at yet another Deep House track on your own, at your studio.
