Complete Glitch Hop Production with Maschine by Defazed
Defazed starts the course by exploring the demo track. He goes through the different sounds and the processing applied, then shows how to set up the master channel for live performance.
The existing beats are analysed and selecting the right samples is discussed. Defazed demonstrates how to map the drums to the hardware for maximum playability. He then records and edits a new beat, showing how editing from the hardware is quick and intuitive.
Defazed demonstrates how to create intricate glitch percussion and loops using filters and automation. He then utilises these techniques to create an 8-bar drop by layering the glitch percussion and high impact hits.
In this lesson, Defazed provides a step-by-step guide to making the basslines in the track, showing how they are created from scratch with Massive and then made into patterns to go with the drum break.
From start to finish, Defazed shows how to take a bass sound and sample it, goes through the processing on the bass group in detail and shows how the main hard-edged bass that is so characteristic of Glitch Hop is given its punch and power. A demonstration of his use of mid-side processing using Brainworx BX Control V2 is also given.
Defazed shows his use of NI Massive to create chords by altering the fundamental frequency of the oscillators, demonstrating the individual effect on the sound that each one has and how he uses them to great effect. He shows how to add variation to different scenes and builds up a huge, dancefloor-filling sound.
In the penultimate lesson, an outro and additional atmospherics are created. Patterns are edited and additional automated effects applied to complete the arrangement.
Defazed goes through the track, identifying and explaining weak and problem areas and how to improve them, whilst defining the Glitch Hop vibe. The overall mix is analysed and tweaked. A brief overview of sidechain compression, reverb levels and mastering is given before the final track is exported.
