Deep house is a popular genre right now, both in the mainstream and underground of electronic music. Using the latest version of Image Line’s FL Studio, we show you how to create a deep house track from scratch. Everything is covered, from drum production, to synth work, as well as mixing and mastering. We start off by briefly covering some of the differences between FL Studio 12 and its predecessors, before using Drumaxx to create a simple house beat. Using the built-in synths of FL Studio, we show you how to create percussion, sound effects and sweepers, as well as using them for basslines, leads and pad sounds. We also cover the arrangement of the track, before detailing the processes of subtractive and additive mixing.
For the purposes of this course, it is recommended that you have the producer version of FL Studio, with all of its related plugins, like Harmor, PoiZone and Harmless, as these will be used throughout the course.
