ADSR Sounds has introduced FM8 EFX Sound Design and Electronic Sound Design for Massive, two new tutorial video courses by Jonny Strinati.
The FM8 EFX Sound Design tutorial series looks at using FM8 to create your own down lifters, uplifters, sweeps and impacts.
These videos explore some ideas and methods that are easy to implement with this awesome synth and hopefully sheds a little light on some things you can do differently to help improve your instruments and your sound design sessions within FM8.
The Electronica Sound Design tutorial is about programming synths, sound design, drum design and beat creation with NI Massive.
In this 4 part mini series, we learn how to design sounds, make drums and sequence with NI Massive for the electronica genre (think Warp Records).
The courses are available to purchase for $9 USD each.

creativeLIVE has announced the addition of an audio channel to its online broadcast network.
Instead of scouring YouTube for homemade tutorials, you can now learn music production and business directly from leading DJs, producers, and managers. creativeLIVE, a live education platform, today announced the addition of an audio channel to their online broadcast network. creativeLIVE’s free workshops — on topics ranging from DAWs to networking — teach musicians the technical skills and industry knowledge needed to make a living in the music business. The audio program will launch with classes taught by Incubus manager Steve Rennie, metal guitarist/producer Eyal Levi and EDM DJ Big Chocolate.
Founded in 2010, creativeLIVE is transforming online learning by providing free, live access inside previously-closed doors. Venturing into music makes sense for a company whose CEO, Mika Salmi, is responsible for discovering and signing Nine Inch Nails. Of the audio channel launch, Salmi said, “Music is close to my heart and we have been chomping at the bit to launch an audio channel on creativeLIVE. Just like in photography and other channels, we will be bringing world class experts to teach real actionable skills. I personally can’t wait to update my DJ skills!”
Creativity is the new literacy — and creativeLIVE is where musicians, artists, and entrepreneurs find the skills they need to make their dreams of living the creative life a reality.
Upcoming creativeLIVE audio courses

Billboard top 200 staple Eyal Levi (Whitechapel, August Burns Red, Devildriver, and Job for a Cowboy) will teach a one-day course on how to digitally create real-sounding drums in EZDrummer. (Sept. 25)

DJ/producer Big Chocolate (Cameron Argon) started making music in his bedroom at the age of 16, and is now an internationally-renowned performer coming off his second Warped Tour.
