Description

Have you heard Calvin Harris track “This is What You Came For”? 

Do you want to know how to make Calvin Harris style tracks that sounds like it and get in par with the “big guys” in the music industry? Do you want to learn Music Production for Electronic Music?

Do you want to create a track from scratch?

Do you struggle to lay out ideas and to get inspiration quickly for your Electronic Music track? Are you running in to writers block easily these days? 

Then this course is for you!

Welcome to this course where I will learn you how to make Calvin Harris Style Track in Logic Pro X. In this course – you will learn how to create a “modern” EDM track fast and how to get ideas quickly. In just a few hours you will learn how to overcome writers block and arrange your track fast.

I have produced electronic music ever since I met DJ’s like Avicii, Alesso or Otto Knows (they actually went to the same High School as me in Stockholm, Sweden) and that is for a long time – over 10 years now – and a few years ago I got to a point where I couldn’t get past writers block and I didn’t know what to produce anymore. The genre “Electronic Music” started to get generic and after a while the style got slower in tempo – from 128BPM to 110BPM and even slower. After trying to experiment with tempo and different style I became a lot more inspired to create music again. 

In this course we are going over how to start from an initial idea where we are going to a creative stage where they are no rules at all – just throw in whatever sound that you like. After that we are going straight to the point and arranging our track idea, cleaning up and organising the project. I like arranging my tracks even when I’m not 100% sure about every sound that it contains. It’s a lot easier to see what sounds you should add or rather need add when you have a proper arrangement laid out. After that we are going over how to perfecting the idea and experimenting with the sound a bit – just so we won’t get bored of it.

We are also going through the full process of mixing down the track properly so every sound is levelled out, have an stereo image and EQed properly. After that we will also go through the full process of mastering the track so it sounds great on all of your speaker systems like your computer, a radio, in your car or a club system.

Calvin Harris is one of my favorite DJ’s and artists and i believe this course deserve’s this rating because of the fact that I know now how to create tracks that sound like his. I love it!

Very much enjoying the content provided here. Some small things have been missed here but overall a great course with a good end result as the Dj Snake project. It does show how to make vocal chops in Logic which is something i always wondered how to do due to the lack of YouTube videos on this in Logic Pro X.

– Thomas K

Great course. I like that he showed an idea and made a whole track up on that single idea. Wish he could show more of the presets that he used but other than that great. Good track too
