After having taken this class, you'll have seen a complete production process first hand, starting from nothing and working through all the different important stages of the production process, from start to finish. The track is inspired by artists like Ame, Bodzin, Diynamic labels and of course, Francois Rengere.

  • Ableton Live 9.7.2 Standard (or higher) - you can also follow along with 9.2 (the only difference is the Simpler, an extra video explains it)
  • VST: Arturia MINI V3 (or higher)

I've already released a couple of tracks on labels such as Universal Music, Parquet Recordings, Portrait Digital Recordings, Somatic Sense, Jannowitz Records and others.
