Not so long ago I posted a video on the ARTFX STUDIOS Youtube channel on which you could ask your questions to Glitchhop producer: Minoru. The amount of questions that I've gathered through a multiple different ways was quite big and thus I've made a selection of the best questions. Those questions have been answered by Minoru himself and in this article you can read my interview with this amazing producer.
Minoru has gained a lot of recognition for his productions during the past year, so I was pretty excited to do this interview as the first in a whole series of interviews with all kinds of artists from the electronic music scene. With this artist interview I hope to shed some light on all the production related questions you send me in the past weeks, and I want to thank all people who contributed to these questions, without you this wouldn't be possible. So let's get to it! Below are a few tracks by Minoru for you to listen to while reading the interview, have fun!
It's been a hell of a ride, but this Tutorial Tuesday season about Glitchhop is coming to an end! With only two videos left I guess you all know what the two subjects will be, right: mixdowns and mastering. This week is the first of a two-hour special session on how I do my mixdowns and mastering, next week will be the second part.
I wanted these two videos to be the most complete guide for electronic music producers when it comes to mixdowns and mastering, making them much more complete than the two videos about these subjects from Tutorial Tuesday season 1 about Electro House. Not only has my workflow changed during the past year, I also learned a lot of new stuff regarding these skills so I've got a lot more to say now.
This video will take you through the entire process of mixing the track I created during this season, which means I'll handle compression techniques, EQ and panning tips, stereo widening, saturation and a lot more. Never have I spend so much attention to putting as much information about a subject in one video, so be prepared to take some notes along the way.
Creating a solid track has never been easy to begin with, but when you've finished a track it's always wise to go over it one more time to add the finishing touch to the project. So how do you do this? I will show you my process of adding the finishing touch to my music in another big production session. There we go!
In this video lesson I'll show you how you can end your track in a interesting way instead of simply stripping out some elements and fading stuff out. I want to be a bit more creative than that with the outro for this Glitchhop track...
You have arrived at the moment in your music career in which you like what you produce, you think it sounds good and would like to share your creations with the outside world. You create a Soundcloud profile and upload your tracks and you realize nobody is listening and posting comments, now what? This article will shed some light on how I handled this when I was just starting out, I will share some tips on what not to do and how to get some more feedback.
Getting your music heard is not something that happens overnight so don't expect instant results after reading this article, this article is mainly written as a guideline of what you could and what you shouldn't do. That way I hope you won't make any mistakes that I made when I started producing music and become a better musician with most of all, more valuable feedback and exposure. Let's get to it...
