Producer ‘Spoils’ aka Joel Dawes gives us some quick tips on sidechaining in Live using a dummy signal channel.  Using the track delay function Joel produces a fast attack sidechaining effect which can be applied to any desired mix channel.

This video highlights a fraction of the type of production know-how gems you can get to grips with, as part of his new ‘Bass House Production In Live’ online course, which is now available through Producertech.

About Bass House Production In Live

This new course from Producertech gives you the opportunity to see for yourself how a dark, heavy, bass house tune is constructed by one of the scene’s leading lights, producer Joel Dawes, renowned for his productions with Deadbeat under the Spoils alias. The course shows how to create huge basslines, drum grooves, shimmering pads and leads, and also shares a few of his processing techniques and talks you through his custom effect racks, before finishing off the course with a quick section on mastering.

The course is available to stream immediately after purchase, and can be watched 24/7/365. Included with the videos is the live project from the course, giving you the opportunity to see for yourself first hand how Joel’s effect racks, synths and drum loops are created. Also included is a bonus 100MB bass house sample pack courtesy of Loopmasters.
