The Techno Tutorial by Bertsbeats







In this 6 video techno tutorial i mainly focus on how to make a simple techno track ,some free software to use,an overview of some different forms of techno,how to make a 303 and a techno lead and how to arrange a track. While this tutorial is mainly geared for newbies as what im about to show you in the video if you been producing  for a while you may not find anything useful you should know all this stuff already . There is still a chance if your a novice you may find something useful.

I do have a trance tutorial in the works,i will be uploading soon once its complete so Stay tuned for my full on start to finish trance tutorial. Again the trance tutorial is also for newbies but ,covers some complex,complicated things in it .So what i will do is break up the tutorials in days for example this video may be an hour long ,and deal with a lot of concepts so to not have the newbie or beginner get lost in it.

 Instead  when i have taught you enough you will see in the video it will say end of day 1. At that time you can either pause the video and continue what you have just learned  to day 2 or if you have all the time in the world by all means just continue on.Me teaching you this stuff is very enjoyable for me,i enjoy doing it so i just find time and i do it,it does not take long for me,i just want to know that you learned how to make trance that would make me happy.One last thing im not famous or anything ,im not the best no one is the best we all make mistakes we are all humans no one is perfect. What i do do is have fun with music and want you to have fun too with your music and the goal is to make people dance thats what its all about! Remember there is no right or wrong way in music as long as you make great music theres nothing wrong with breaking the rules of music theory!

The Call and Response in edm

When you produce any type of music there will be times where you either draw a blank! Or you need something for a section,something unique ,something different.Something unique.
Maybe you just want to add some tension to a otherwise boring song. Maybe you are working on a remix contest and want to stand out from the rest!
Whatever the case is no matter what you are working on,theres one thing you can go to everytime to spice up any track. Its called the call and response.
How does it work 
You cannot mess with science this pretty much will work every time.So how does it work? What does it sound like?
The truth is you’ve allready heard it millions ,countless times already . You just may not have been producing or composing or arranging at the time so it was not that clear to you. Every song you hear  today on the radio in the clubs at a concert utilizes a form of call and response.
The question and the answer
The most common one is the question and the answer.
You create a question and then yo…

Write edm music with your emotion

Always write how you feel.
A lot of beginners I notice they don’t really write with feeling. When writing music no matter what kind edm,classical,pop or dance,or techno you should always write with feeling.
SomberYes write with feeling with emotion. If you are writing a sad somber trance track.Then write the track in F-minor. If you need to brush up on your music theory take a look about f-minor here.
Happy vibe
Lets say you want to  make a happy uplifting emotional trance track youd then mix that f-minor with some major chords and do your own thing and come up with a chord progression that sounds good. Theres no right or wrong way of  doing it just make sure your using the right scale to get the right emotion your after.
Lets say you were making a deep house track then youd want a mixture of some dominant sevenths chords and some minor sevenths in your chord sequence.
So it does not matter what music your making just always remember to always write the way you are feeling and you will be a…
