Top Indian DJ/Producer Suketu Studies Online w/ Point Blank. Watch Week 2 of the Vlog Here

It’s week two of DJ Suketu’s studies on the second module of our Complete Electronic Music Production course online. DJ Suketu is one of India’s top DJs and also runs The Music Inc (TMI), one of Mumbai’s finest musical institutions. Last week we caught up with him after the first week of the Electronic Music Production two, which focused on beatmaking. This week is all about tightening up on the drums and giving the beat that finishing touch.

This week the introductions are over and done with and all that’s left is to get stuck into the nitty gritty. Week one sees students making some relatively sophisticated beats, but this week we learn how to really give them a professional edge and get them to really carry a track. To do this students spend time learning various techniques including parallel compression, EQ, sidechaining and phase cancellation, as well as how to use sampling and synthesis to undercut your beat and take it up a notch or two. Given that last week we looked at making a trap beat in Ableton, we thought the best example to use for week two is an embellishment of the same pattern. Watch below to learn how to underpin a kick drum with an 808 sub sound, and you’ll start to hear those classic trap elements forming. Check back next week for week three – focusing on basslines.

Top Indian DJ/Producer Suketu Studies Online w/ Point Blank. Watch Week 9 of the Vlog Here

DJ Suketu returns for another weekly vlog following his progress on our Complete Electronic Music Production course. DJ Suketu is one of India’s top DJs and also runs The Music Inc (TMI), one of Mumbai’s finest musical institutions. Having completed the first module in Electronic Music Production 1, we and he move on the aptly titled second module: Electronic Music Production 2. This module builds on the techniques and theory studied in EMP 1 to give a much fuller appreciation of producing tracks. This module incorporates a few new genres and styles which are House, Deep House, Trap and Drum & Bass.

So here we are, beginning the second module of Complete Electronic Music Production online. Week 1 of EMP 2 acts as an introduction to the module as a whole, and we dive right into Beatmaking. As we learned in EMP 1, the beat is often the starting point for producing electronic music, and here we delve much deeper into the vast sea of possibilities when programming your beat. Students will learn about choosing the rights sounds, building custom kits, what the advantages are of programming in your own sounds, and what special effects you should look to for inspiration. As Suketu explains, this week allows students to build much more complex and interesting beats than they are taught in EMP 1. By way of example, we’ve included in this week’s blog a video from the course, namely how to programme a trap pattern in Ableton. Take a look at that below, and don’t forget to check back next week for another update from ourselves and DJ Suketu.

Top Indian DJ/Producer Suketu Studies Online w/ Point Blank. Watch Week 7 of the Vlog Here

DJ Suketu is one of India’s top DJs and also runs The Music Inc (TMI), one of Mumbai’s finest musical institutions. Over the last few weeks he has been studying our Complete Electronic Music Production online course, demonstrating that even those with his kind of experience can take plenty from learning with Point Blank. He’s been keeping us up to date with his progress thus far with his weekly vlog series. Watch below as he tells us how he found week seven. Come back next week for the next instalment.

By week seven, students will have learned all of the building blocks needed to make a track in a DAW. The final section of this online music production course is all about finishing tracks, turning a great idea into something tangible. This is often the most frustrating part of production, so the final two weeks of the course are dedicated to helping you get past the finish line. To do this, in week seven we look at the importance of having a solid structure in place, and how to work through each element to give your track an extra edge. We also explore a few more effects to help with the final flourish, such as the synth wobble effect demonstrated below.
