Description

Following on from his Tech Tips on pop vocals, Sonic Academy welcomes back Austin Hull for a brand new course where we get to check out how to make his new single REDRUM - a sinister, hard-hitting, lyrical track that skilfully merges pop, hip-hop and RnB.

Over these 17 videos, we get to watch as Austin recreates his song from scratch. Starting with the initial chord structure, a dark theme emerges that helps with both eery sound design and vengeful lyric writing for the hook.
We build a basic rhythm before layering synths and percussion to help structure and arrange the track's progression.

We flesh out each of the different sections by layering further synths, atmospheres and effects to create a dope and varied instrumental, which in turn gives us a track to work from to finalise the lyrics.
Austin then moves on to a detailed look at how to process the vocal stacks before we carry out the mixdown, adding ear candy, automation and tweaks, to complete the track.

This is a very different course in that we're not only producing a sick track, but Austin takes into account and shares the whole process of creating a theme, writing lyrics and structuring a complete song from start to finish.

Go check it out!
