How To Escape the 8-Bar Loop

Back

Welcome

This course gives you a simple 5-step workflow to build a complete track, in Session View, by FEEL.


It covers specific Audio & MIDI production techniques, key commands, and principles of Composition that work for every genre of electronic bass music.


This is Learn by DOING, not by watching video tutorials, and it's really FUN! You're going to build a real track, using loops I give you, in a series of hands-on guided session lessons. 


WORDS FROM A PAST STUDENT:

"Hey Steve! I think this is the best way to make electronic music.  I'm just starting to apply it in my sessions and I'm very excited." -- Daniel Ivanov
