FLOW 1 – Arrival (Overview)

/ Tutorials

Hey guys.  In this post I’ll be describing the contents of my first video of the FLOW series.

Basically FLOW is a real-time behind-the-scenes look at my DAW workflow when creating the 8 Bar Embryo series.

As you might know, 8 Bar Embryos is the name I’ve given to my EDM-based pursuit of improvement.  In other words, since I have a Groove Metal background as a guitarist, I wanted to expand my sonic palette.  I’ve always liked Dance music (actually, late 90’s House was the first genre I liked) so I figure by making 100 tracks I’ll be good enough to charge.

So until then I’m offering you all to come along with me on my journey.  Some of you are more experienced and others less so.  Whatever your experience level, please be sure to engage with me via comments, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram so we can have a conversation.  Two layered leads are bigger than one!

In this first FLOW video you’re welcomed with a session-in-progress.  I’ve already mapped out my reference track and have begun sound design and arrangement on my track.  If you are wondering why I’d do those things then be sure to ask and I’ll explain.

Anyway, check out the video and let me know what you think.  Enjoy!
