Welcome back to Master the Art of Music Creation. The remix is starting to come together, now we have to add a bass line to support the existing synths. I like using ReFx Nexus, and Native Instruments FM8, for the bass, and I’ll show you how to add the new MIDI bass parts to match and work with the synth tracks that are audio clips. We’ll also cover VCA grouping in Pro Tools | HD, EUCON control with the Artist Series, and some basic mix and plug-in techniques to finish the bass track.
During this episode I will be using the song ‘Words to Say’ from the South African band The Arrows. You may remember the song when it was featured in the From Creation to Final Mix series. Let’s get started with Episode 8.
