    Experimenting with short-form tutorials again ;)

    Someone's been listening to the Madsonik & Kill The Noise remix of "Escape Room" ;) Great tip. Such a simple, but super useful feature!

    Huge Kill The Noise fan indeed!! Love his bass design and drum mixing. Learned a lot from studying his mixes. (All In My Head and Thumbs Up in particular)

    For the demo in the video, I can spill the beans and tell you that I remade "Mick Gordon - Faust" then replaced the midi with "Daft Punk - Harder Better (Alive 2007 version)". I steal a lot.

    That Daft Punk version also has some incredible synth automation. Highly recommend checking it out :)

    Yeah, Kill The Noise is absolutely killer! Back in my DJ-days, dropping "FUK UR MGMT" was always a highlight :). I actually prefer his remix of "Like A Bitch" over Zomboy's original. Been really into the dirty, edm stuff lately, like Rezz x 1788-L - HEX, Porter Robinson & Madeon - Shelter (Madeon's Evil Edit) and the aforementioned Escape Room (Madsonik & Kill The Noise Remix). So much cool, dirty sound design! And I will definitely check out the Daft Punk live album, thanks for the tip!

    Thank you for the quick tip. Love the groove of that bass line mixed with the drums! What is your sound source for that drum kit? Great sound!

    Thank you. I do spend a lot of time trying to make my kick and bass relation feel right.

    The kick, clap, and snare are my own.
    But... (shameless plug) they are now part of the AVA - PRISM Pop Drum Library update.

    Kick drum location:


    Kick processing (-1 st):


    Btw, there's nothing on the master. All the "glue" comes from the mix.

    I'll try to do another video on that when I find some time :)

    The other way around is to manually automate stuff with the macros to create interesting flows and rhythm - really common stuff in the EDM music /thumbs up for SeamlessR/.

    Still very helpful 2 minutes - thank you for sharing
