So YouTube ruined our party last week, but we are back as promised with another insight into Loui Brown aka Sorley’s production workflow. This time round Sorley shows us how he quickly generates ideas using a bespoke starting template, how organises his sound pallet, plus how he takes an initial loop and quickly gets the bulk of a song arrangement completed in minutes! If you want to discover how this rising star in the Tech House scene sets himself up for success, you will not want to miss this one!
Soon as I start like a pig chicks are, and then I thought so if I press play on them these will just start be a strong group, and you can see how quickly I can get from one just because of all that sounds out they got no work and I’ve got like a little grill template. I think Bonnie groom the other grooves and the swings I like, see of them the temp there, now you’ve got the gears of a truck there and I’ll just jump into the beer sign, got like corn settle straw ‘coz I don’t really know if it’s hot you saw I don’t know if I want to pick a key I’ll just go there yeah Mike I know but in there put that on along yeah there sighing boy, and then after I’ve done that I’ll start finding some other sounds so I might jump another synth. I don’t want singsong yes cause Mike, yeah, we can just see how quickly I get an idea down, and then once I’ve got like a little point in the truck I’ll start looking for boils if I want to add balls. Right, so you basically get the groove locked in which is there to sort of killer part of the the tech house track and then you’re looking to their actual it goes on simply just like nice quick in Ag and then like it’s home for site a it put there’s a good few years to settle for any juices out there this and series almost five on the future get and the
sounds that you like and the plugins that lean or not like the rebellion like find sounds and like surfing through a sample paths because we’ve already done it, yeah, totally tightening what else something so this is me like sound bunk down the side so I’ve talked army fear that loops from
all the sandbox I’ve got, I’m just looking out over in a few I’m quite quick in this process just to get and idea down and then it’s slow technique oh yes well you swallow them go down this preserve bit here and you click this little are also it’s pointing right, yeah,get the gate going on any of them sounds that I don’t like, I’ll either click the mode buy that or I would drag them over in a Korean view and chop them up yourself and then put them back in, right, so yeah,pretty much to be asleep under that I’ve not for likes and stuff yeah wicked that’s the low bass or devil open it isn’t too much, you’ll see all the changes coming in, so these the second. So once you’ve got that, that’s we now know that we’ve got multiple sets of eight bars that will work and they all flow and therefore, you know you’ve got enough to build the arrangement, yesterday so I’ve got blocked out and I just see it out to around about a minute duplicate that along. I’ve got a minute and then I’ll just make that into a bucket and then I know I like this bit here on the right hand side floors so I could just tear it up, it there and that all that now sitting much got the body
of the truck when I just do another three on top of that for my length it’s there and it’s fed up my work board quick. Brilliant, really really good, Nick Mo is saying this is a wicked tuna vocal will destroy it collapse.
