James Wiltshire from The Freemasons and F9 Audio takes us through the new F9 TRAX production template concept behind his latest release House Nation Vol.1 for Logic, and gives a detailed look at whats included and how you can use these template productions to further your own studio techniques.
About F9 TRAX
F9 TRAX are 5 fully functioning LOGIC productions produced and mixed inside your DAW using no external plugins. These are F9 Drumtrax on steroids and show exactly what your DAW’s inbuilt tools are truly capable of when fed the right source sounds.
Far more enlightening than stems, far more flexible than loops and being built extensively on multi-sampled Patches, drum kits and sound menus these projects are the most perfect starting block for your next classic house production we can think of.
Most of the drums in this Classic house flavoured pack have been sampled via an original SP1200 drum sampler patches all EQ’d and ready to work as a coherent rhythm track alongside true classic hardware multi-samples. As all main musical parts are midi you can dive right in and start creating to perfectly produced and mixed low-latency rhythm track knowing that sampled patches have been crafted to fit perfectly with the project
The most exciting part of F9 TRAX for us as a label is for us to deliver the production techniques & knowledge, plugin chains, channel strips, automation tricks, arrangement magic and gain structures of professionally produced music as fully functioning DAW Projects instead of isolated tutorial examples.
Want to know how the Pros get such flow in arrangements or how best to work that tricky balance between kick and bass? Or how hard you should be hitting the master fader? - TRAX give you insight into all this and more. Prepare to be amazed at what your DAW can achieve without a single external plugin!
