How to Beef Up an Intense Trailer Track!


Senior Member
Hey friends! I wanted to share an excerpt of a lesson I had with one of my friends and students, Shaheen. He's currently working on a couple of tracks, this one being a big trailer one! I hope you enjoy our discussion. :) It's always fun working on genres that aren't my go-to, so I learn a lot in the process as well!
