Are you a music maker, performer, composer, or aspiring songwriter looking to up your game? This is the place to start.
This course is all about mastering FL Studio 20 in a quick, straight-to-the-point way. We will dive in with some demo tracks by expert FL Studio producer and DJ Jacob Gundlach (and your co-instructor for this course), and pick them apart to see how they work, and how they were built. Jacob will then take you on a journey through the FL Studio 20 software in a way that shows what everything does, how it works, and (most importantly) how to make great music with it.
Throughout this course Jacob will make a track with you, side-by-side. The last two sections of the class are on Mixing and Mastering, and you will finish this class with a completed, mastered, radio-ready track.
