Producertech intros House Production with Ableton Push Part I, a video tutorial course by Paul Maddox.

House Production with Ableton Push Part I

This is a course for anyone wanting to get into producing House music with Ableton’s Push, by one of the most respected producers of the last decade, Paul Maddox. With numerous releases under his own name and also his co- productions as Spektre, on labels like Data, Positiva, Tidy and Viscious, his tracks have seen support from revered DJs such as Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin and James Zabiela.

On this course, Paul shows a hands-on approach to making music, using Ableton’s revolutionary control surface Push. Multiple drum tracks are created, sequenced, layered and processed, with parts played in live or programmed with Push’s step sequencer and then edited with the hardware controls. A funky bassline is then added to complete the groove, created from scratch with the Live Suite synth Operator.

Accompanying the lessons is a download pack containing the Live Set from the course and over 100 extra house drums hits and bass samples from the Loopmasters collection.

The course is available from Loopmasters for £14.95 GBP.

Producertech announces Live Beginner-Intermediate & Advanced Level Weekends

Producertech Live weekends

Producertech has announced the first of many live teaching events, starting in November with 2 Ableton Live weekends by certified trainer Rob Jones.

These weekends, one for Beginners and one for Advanced level users, include 2 full days of training on Ableton software and music production in general, as well as instruction on Ableton’s control surface Push, free online courses and £100 worth of samples from Loopmasters.

Located in Producertech’s new UK headquarters, the Echoplex Studio complex in Eastbourne, these events allow students the opportunity to interact directly with certified trainer and online course creator Rob Jones, while he teaches the ins and outs of Live in detail to a class of no more than 16 people. Throughout the day, there will be exercises set, which students can carry out on the provided workstations or their own laptops, along with in-depth group and one-to-one mentoring to maximize students’ experiences and learning.

The first weekend, for beginner-intermediate level users will cover all of the basics of producing with Live, right from the very start. Each area will be explained comprehensively and some more complex aspects like envelopes and modulation will be introduced, so both someone starting out and those with a little experience already are suitable attendees. The second weekend then goes deeper into mixing and sound design, looking at more technical aspects of producing and performing, to take a student’s skills to the next level, and is suitable for someone who has been using Live for some time and has a reasonable grasp on this amazing software.

Ableton’s control surface Push will also be shown, so that students can see a first-hand demonstration and have an improved understanding of how it works. There will also be some demonstrations of recent hardware releases from Producertech’s sponsors Focusrite, Novation and KRK.

Every attendee will be given an online course from Producertech – the level 1 (Beginners) course for attendees of the first weekend and the level 2 (Advanced) course for the second weekend. These courses, worth £150, mean that students can continue studying online for as long as they need after the event. Any students who are already signed up to these courses will be allowed access to other Producertech courses, such as Paul Maddox’s Tech House and Techno course, up to the same value, free of charge. Furthermore, Loopmasters are kindly supplying all students with a voucher for £100 worth of sample packs of your choosing, from their enormous library of high quality samples!

Loopmasters releases Spektre Atmospheric Techno

Loopmasters has released Spektre Atmospheric Techno, an exclusive and inspirational set samples from the production duo known internationally as Spektre.

Loopmasters Spektre Atmospheric Techno

SPEKTRE weaves an intrepid, complex web amongst underground dance music’s elite. The techno brainchild of DJs/producers Filthy Rich and Paul Maddox, the dark duo was formed through a shared passion for driving electronic music and a mutual desire to push sound boundaries using the most cutting edge technology available. The fusion of their combined experience in the studio allows them to construct dark, sinister sounds mixed with twisted, haunting vocals and unnerving, atmospheric foundations.

Always innovative, their sinful sound draws inspiration from early looping detroit techno from the likes of Joey Beltram and R&S releases, combined with an amalgamation of much more recent production masterminds such as Dubfire, Martin Buttrich, Trentemoller and Stephan Bodzin. High rulers in the underground scene, their live shows feature rave-inspired, melodic, razor-sharp beats and their menacing releases hold the key to packing out hot, sweaty, dance floors every weekend.

Weighing in at 560MB, Atmospheric Techno includes 311 24Bit samples, with 122 Loops at 127 Bpm, and 189 One Shot House and Techno samples. Also included are 22 ready to play patches for NNXT, Halion, EXS, SFZ and Kontakt compatible soft samplers. Apple Loops, Reason Refill and Ableton Live packs are also available to purchase separately.

Spektre Atmospheric Techno is available to purchase for £24.95 GBP.
