Keeping Songs Interesting & Panning Decisions
In Part ONE of this course we explore different techniques for keeping your arrangements dynamic and interesting, in order to make sure your listener stays engaged. Including automation, parallel processing, different effects, and more…
In Part TWO of this course we take it a step further and we look at a few ideas, some creative, some practical, for panning the tracks in your arrangements to create a spacious production.
Finally, at the end of each Part, I offer my special “Album Rec.” corner, where I recommend an album I think you should listen to, and how it relates with the lesson we’d just learned.
Here’s the song we’re working on today, in its entirety-
Shachar Boussani, aka Shak, started as a bass player at the age of 16. What started as jam sessions at friends’ basements quickly grew to become a clear lifelong passion. Shak then went on to producing music with other artists and singer and even composing for film. Years of producing and recording independent artists in all types of different studios, eventually led Shak to a keen set of skills perfectly suited for mixing music, such as a great balance between the love of the art and the love of the technology, understanding the artists’ language, patience, organization skills, adaptability, and more. With over a decade of experience, Boussani got to work with all different types of artists in many different genres- from Jazz to Hip-Hop, from RnB to Rock, and from Alternative to mainstream Pop music. Shak is of the firm belief that when all is said and done, if the artist’s message is true, it does not matter which dialect they choose to use in the universal language of music!
