Groove3 Disco Pop Making a Track from Scratch [TUTORIAL]
Are you looking to produce a disco pop track but aren’t sure where to start? You’re in the right place! In this disco pop production video course, production guru Thomas Cochran guides you through the process from ground zero, demonstrating how to design sounds, flesh out the arrangement with melodic and harmonic parts, add effects, and much more. By the end of the production course, you’ll be ready to tackle the genre head-on, with ideas to spare! These disco pop production videos are designed for those users with some production experience.
After welcoming you to the course, Thomas kicks things off with a quick playthrough of the track featured in this course, so you’ll know what we’re working towards. Then it’s on to the primary drum track, and Thomas shows you how to create an appropriate kick, clap, and percussion pattern to function as the main rhythmic bed of the song. You’ll also learn how to properly mix the drums to help enhance the groove and set the stage for the rest of your instruments.
Next, it’s on to the bass. Discover how to program a synth bass sound that will serve as the song’s main melody, as well as a second bass to fill out the low end properly. Harmony comes next, and Thomas shows you how to add piano chords to the pre-chorus and chorus to fill out the sound.
Throughout the rest of the course, you’ll learn several other techniques and concepts, such as adding a funk guitar part by way of Native Instruments’ SESSION GUITARIST ELECTRIC VINTAGE plug-in (and mixing tips), arranging tips to help turn the track into a full song, adding effects for color, and even some mastering tips to help finalize the track. You’ll also find a complete list of every plug-in Thomas uses in the course and, of course, have access to the tracks so you can follow along in your own DAW.
