Ever want to get into a top producer's head and see what makes him tick? In this course, Eyal Amir – with outstretched arms – welcomes you into his creative world as he imagines, sketches, develops and produces an amazing track right before your eyes.
Eyal Amir may be one of most creative composer/producers on the planet. He is also an inspiring teacher. So when he came up with the idea to create a song using advanced overdubbing and sampling techniques all using a single mic, we were like – Duh!!
Deploying Cubase – his DAW of choice – he begins this creative journey with a simple melodic seed. Throughout the entirety of this course, we get to witness and learn how he cultivates that innocent idea into an extremely complex and innovative track.
You see how to do advanced sampling techniques. Here, he records real drums and combines them with his own sampled drums to create an army of percussion that is the track's driving force! You also learn how to record and maximize the sonics of your tracks using just one microphone (an AKG 414). There's even a section on vocal arranging and tuning that will forever change the way you think about recording voice!
Most of all you get a behind-the-console look at how a top producer like Eyal Amir visualizes everything in a production as he constructs melodies, beats and harmonies all within a song form to attain a very high level of musical production.

Not the way I do it. That's why I watched it. Lots of interesting techniques that I will certainly use in the future. I almost gave only four stars because there was little mention of mic techniques used and why - which was a major mention in the opening of the project. I would like to know more about recording without isolation too (live kit). Nice work!

I wasn't too sure based on the first few videos. However.... it's well worth sticking with this one. From moving a few notes around in a midi editor to a finished masterpiece. Some great humour, tips, concepts, insight, creativity and an awesome track to boot. Inspirational. Very well played.Very cool.

An interesting course that did provide me with alternative ideas to composition and production. However, I felt this course was definitely geared more towards beginners.

Nice but when you listen final tune there is maybe about a 50% of production tricks reveald in my opinion . These which are showed are very interesting especially layering perc and...Jordan Rudess's apple's bites hits.

A great insight in to a very individual way of writing and recording. Some great ideas to try on my next track!

Now i don't even use Cubase - but this course still has some interesting ideas for composition/production and a superb section on recording /layering percussion and drums. The guy presenting obviously loves what he does and the drummer/percussionist he uses is superb. Then - in the final 'video' - the guy with the silver beard shows up (playing Ableton's Push controller) and it all goes ballistic !! In a very good way !! Some nice humour too. Well worth watching. :-)

Fun and quirky in a cool way :) although I use another DAW, the production philosophy and creative approach on this tutorial was really worth the watch and time spent. Crazy tune and mad production!

Really well done and very well explained. I learned more in the last to days than I have I. The last year about Cubase! Awesome!
