Producertech releases Arranging Techniques with Push

Producertech has launched Arranging Techniques with Push, a video tutorial by Paul Maddox.

Arranging Techniques with Push

Concluding his three part series, teaching the fundamentals of House production using Ableton Push, Paul Maddox returns to give you the lowdown on arrangement and automation, completing the track he began in parts 1 and 2. As a solo artist and as part of the duo Spektre, Paul has had numerous releases on popular labels and support from headline DJ acts across the globe. His wealth of experience combined with his knowledge of Live and passion for teaching come together in this series of tutorials, as he imparts professional tips and tricks in a clear and concise manner.

In this final instalment, Maddox takes you through preparing the parts created in the previous sections for arrangement, covering various button modes and the creation of scenes, before assigning new effects and device macros, with intuitive settings that add excitement and dynamic movement to the track. Scenes are then recorded into arrangement view, with drum fills triggered in real time, after which Maddox adds the sheen, recording parameter automation that keeps the soundscape fluid and builds up the excitement, whilst the solid beats pump underneath.

Accompanying the lessons is a download pack that contains over 100MB of House FX samples, courtesy of Loopmasters, giving you the tools to add exciting sounds to your own arrangements, as well as the Live set from the course.

The course is available from Loopmasters for £14.95 GBP.

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.
