I'm currently following several edm courses as well as learning from Allan's tutorials all at the same time. I'm only on my 3rd tutorials out of the bundle and I have learned a few different methods that Allan teaches that I have not learned else where. Currently a 3rd of the way through the percussion tutorial and I have learned how to make my track more driving using layered hat loops.
I wish I had more time to focus just on these videos but I am following courses. that have weekly assignments so I have to watch in between my other courses.
I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the bundle
Didn't need a few of the parts but what I did answered so many questions I had and made my sound so much better and my melody writing by leaps and bounds look forward to purchasing some more tutorials and when it came to customer service I needed help with a couple of downloads this guy was so quick to respond and very helpful something very rare these days if you are a beginner this pack will blow your mind if you are searching for a few answers youve been looking for you'll be dancing around your studio reaching for the lasers great pack and great guy thank you I'll definately be purchasing more got my eye on a couple already .
You don't get to watch producers do a mixdown pass on their tracks very often and I can safely say I picked up a few tricks from this one. Allan breaks down a very complicated process and provides a lot of great general advice. Take notes while watching this video!
Really good tutorial. Allan is an actual pro (not just a youtube one, look up his stuff on spotify) so you really do get quality advice. I wish I hadn't spent so much time watching youtube tutorials from people who arent actual professional producers, before I paid for some tutorials.
Stop wasting money on plugins. What you get from these tutorials makes a way bigger difference for your sound, than new/better software.
