What makes AM Studios tutorials different from the rest? 

There is no set way to produce music, and you are always going to come up against issues and creative blocks. In these tutorials, there are no pre-planned sounds, and everything is done in real-time so that you get to see any problems that come up and how to overcome them.

This is a much better way to learn than watching sounds that already fit, fall right in to place. We all know that is not how producing music works in the real world! Watching in real-time will equip you with the skills and understanding of how to overcome any particular issues that arise. It will show you different ways to tackle it so you don’t quit and instead come out of the studio with completed projects.


I don’t use Logic Pro X I use a different DAW. Can I still use this video?

Yes, all the technique you will learn in this video you can implement into your own DAW.


Software synths or plugins used in this video?

The tutorial is done using only Logic Pro X plugins, LFO tool, samples & other free plugins, but you can use any of your preferred plugins to mimic the techniques used.

Great acid tutorial

Yet again another amazing in depth tutorial by Allan, he really explains in a easy to understand way on the basics and the technical side of creating pro sounding acids I used this to make acid lines in my uplifting trance track and it was easy to get to fit in perfectly, the presets that come with this are worth the purchase alone! Highly recommend
