Description

Following on from his massively popular 'Dark Room Techno' course, Sonic Academy proudly welcomes back Techno virtuoso Kirk Degiorgio for an all-new 'How To Make' course and this time he's creating a sublime IDM track from scratch.

Kirk's been on top of his game since the early '90s and a pioneer of this style, so whether you're just starting out or a seasoned producer you know you're in safe hands and this 3 hour easy-to-follow course gives you the professional insight into creating your very own intelligent dance track.

Taking his influences from various artists in this much-loved genre, Kirk starts with a blank canvas and builds an evolving beat using classic 808 samples before laying down the main chord progression using Plugin Boutique's helpful 'Scaler' plugin.
We then add classic sounds from the Jupiter 8 and DX 7 for the pads and bass, fill out the percussion by slicing up a breakbeat before adding a beautiful melody, arpeggio and a classic 303 acid line.

After the arrangement, Kirk shows us his method of exporting and running everything through a tape emulation before we get a detailed look at his mixdown process finalising the track ready to be sent off to mastering engineer.

Go check it out!
