Each lesson is the perfect length, very rarely do I try these kind of things, but this was a real eye opener.

Psytrance Production in Logic Pro
Re:Creation kicks off the course by discussing the content in the upcoming modules.
This lesson shows how to download the Bazzism plugin, and the basic setup for the Logic Pro X Project.
This module teaches how to synthesise kick drums in the Bazzism plugin, and how to create a classic psytrance bassline using Logic’s Retro Synth.
Re:Creation adds a shuffling stereo hi hat pattern, a classic 909 snare and a gritty percussion loop.
This video shows the creation of four different lead sounds using both ES2 and alchemy, in order to create interesting and varied phrases. The leads are processed with a combination of reverb and delay.
In this module, Re:Creation guides you through the sound design processes involved in making an evolving pad with the powerful Alchemy synth.
This lesson walks you through the creation of a heavily modulated lead synth sequence in Alchemy.
With all the leads now in place, Re:Creation tweaks the mix, including adding parallel compression to tighten the drums.
This module teaches how to make two common psytrance effects in ES2, the riser and filtered white noise.
Revisiting the leads, some processing is added to add more unique character to the sounds, including distortion and delay designer.
With the main basis of the track in place, Re:Creation starts to create an arrangement, showing how to use filter automation in order to fade in elements of the track.
This module gives some tips and tricks on structuring the intro for the track, including automating delays to blend sections together.
This video shows how to create audio bounces from sections of the lead part, and chop them up with automation to create interesting sounds and effects.
A ringshifter effect is added to the intro lead, and the main lead is bounced down and sliced up to create interesting glitchy effects.
Re:Creation adds more automation to a multitude of effects parameters, creating more complex variation in the lead parts.
This module teaches how to structure the drop, adding an extra pad layers and a thunderous sub in order to ensure maximum impact.
In this lesson Re:Creation takes a look at creating an effective second drop, ensuring it varies from the first.
The main structure of the track is completed with a few tweaks and the addition of some reverse reverb effects to smooth the transitions between sections.
With the arrangement complete, Re:Creation takes a look at cleaning up the mix with the use of EQ and compression. The module also discusses some quick mastering tips using the adaptive limiter.
This hour long bonus module gives you a chance to see Re:Creation tweaking the track even further, adding some new sounds and processing to really take it to the next level.
