When it comes to electronic music production, filters are a powerful way to shape your sound.
In Filters 101, our new video course, Deadly Habit gives you a hands-on overview of Massive filters. You’ll review the general concept of filters, each type, and gain a deeper understanding of what they are and what they do.
Each Filters 101 video segment presents one filter type. Using advanced spectrum analyzers, Deadly shows you a clear visual representation of what each filter actually looks like.
After these videos I clearly have a great sense of what filters in Massive are all about – something I just toyed around with, not learning it. With this 101 course I can safely say I feel confident in making new and better sounds!
In video 1 of Filters 101, “Overview and Basic Operation,” Deadly Habit goes over the general concept of filters, and how they can be applied to a variety of production situations. You’ll discover:
Video 2 of Filters 101, “Low Pass 2/ Low Pass 4,” Deadly takes a close-up look at low pass filters. You’ll learn:
Music production has multiple layers and angles of attack. There are a thousand ways to get to your final destination.
That’s a big reason audio production is so fun.
It can also be a problem.
Have you ever created a production that was so complicated and twisted even you couldn’t figure out how to do it again? You are not alone.
That’s the beauty of filters. They are simple to use and wicked fast to implement.
More than that, they have infinite possibilities.
You can sculpt a wave with razor-like precision.
And paint it with unlimited colors of sound.
Massive offers you the opportunity to cut off frequencies so that nothing beyond your hard limits gets through.
Or you can blend two different routings to gently change the filtering specification, depending on what it is going on in each track.
This flexibility means you can shape the overall production well before you start to worry about EQing and final mixdown.
Need some more headroom? Done.
Want to add some color to your bottom end? Two clicks and you are there.
Very few production techniques offer this blend of speed, power and sensitivity.
The next type of filter we will be taking a look at is High Pass 2 and High Pass 4. High frequencies are allowed through–low frequencies are cut off. You will be using high pass filters a lot in mixing, EQing and sound design. In Video 4 of Filters 101, you’ll find out:
A band pass filer is just a combination of a low pass and a high pass, only allowing a certain band of frequencies to pass through. In this Filters 101 video, you’ll discover:
As Deadly Habit says in Video 1 of Filters 101, “Overview and Basic Operation,” one of the biggest benefits of this video course is that you can use the concepts on ANY audio platform, not just Massive.
Your investment in furthering your audio education will pay off with every production you work on, no matter what the program, for the rest of your life.
You learn fast because not only does Deadly indicate the exact knobs to tweak and routings to create, he uses a powerful spectrum analyzer to SHOW you how each change affects the sound wave.
It’s much easier to grasp the concepts when you can see immediate changes in the waveform as he works through various concepts in Filters 101.
You simply duplicate exactly what he is doing, and apply it to your tracks immediately.
It’s like having a master producer working on your music for a fraction of what it would cost to bring him in the studio.
Filters are basic building blocks that must be mastered before taking on more complex audio techniques. Filters 101 gives you the skills you need.
” I continue to be amazed at the possibilities that these instruments are capable of. I have learned some incredible knowledge through these video tutorials.
In Video 5, you’ll discover the inverse of the Bandpass Filter, the Band Reject Filter. Also known as the Notch Filter, it’s a great tool to target exact frequency ranges:
In Video 7, get a closer look at the Comb Filter, named after the distinctive peaks on the frequency band that look like the teeth of a comb:
In Video 8, you’ll see how the Double Notch Filter functions like a Bandpass but with a little rollover:
In Video 9, you’ll discover three awesome modified Lowpass filters called Scream, Daft, and Acid:
In Video 10, Bringing It All Together, Deadly Habit wraps up the video series by teaching you some advanced sounds:
Is video the right way to learn the filters in Massive? It’s a good question. Here’s why video is the perfect way to understand and implement filters correctly in your productions:
Take your videos on the go with you. Load them on to your laptop or mobile device. Your education goes with you. Play them on a plane or in your hotel room—perfect for traveling producers and musicians.
It’s great to learn from a book or manual. Video takes it to the next level because you can clearly see how Deadly Habit tweaks each routing matrix or filter setup. You can play the video over and over as you mimic his teaching until you begin to blend his expertise into your own understanding and knowledge.
With Filters 101, you get the expertise a real producer. Deadly Habit has refined his techniques and tips over years of in-studio and live performances. Unlike some video courses, you are not learning from an amateur. You get professional expertise from the front lines of audio production.
We know video is the perfect vehicle for learning Massive’s filters. You benefit from our experience producing some of the most popular Massive training courses in the industry.
