Sonic Academy Filtered House with Dirty Secretz TUTORIAL
After some time away Sonic Academy proudly welcomes back Richie Atkins from Dirty Secretz for an all-new course in How To Make Filtered House.
Starting from scratch Ritchie carves out an absolute classic filtered disco house track using nothing but Ableton and our very own Kick 2 and ANA 2 synths.
Ritchie has always been a favourite when it comes to his clear and easy-to-follow courses and this one is no exception, starting with the most important elements in house music – the kick, the hook, and the bass, we build up the groove with percussive elements and an extra melodic piano part before we lay down the rough arrangement.
We then search and edit vocal loops and build some effects from scratch to help with transitions and buildups all the while automating Ableton’s Auto Filter to get that classic filtered house sound.
Finally, we carry out a mixdown, tweaking the arrangement and then a basic master so it can be played out in the clubs.
Aimed at producers of all abilities this course is one that anyone can get their teeth into.
