Producing Dance Radio Hit
Do you want to learn how to create a Dance Radio Hit song? We created a full video course teaching you exactly how to make a hit song with step-by-step tutorials.
HighLife Samples provide you with the ultimate guide to producing your own Dance Radio Hit. We’ll show you how to create an industry-standard radio single with all the essential sounds for a chart-topping hit, as well as all sound design tips and tricks that make a track stand out.
This video course is divided into 14 video episodes, showing you how to set up your project from scratch, how to select your drums, sound design tricks, how to write a catchy melody, mixing and mastering, and much more.
The video course was made with Ableton Live, and used 90% of Ableton’s stock plugins. For the sound design, we used only two VSTs, Serum and Kickstart 2. Studying the Ableton Project file will give you a great insight into the processing of mixing, mastering, sound layering, equalization, compression, group channel processing, and automation.
If you’re not an Ableton user, don’t worry, the techniques shown in the videos can be applied to other DAWs as well. You can also find all WAV, MIDI, and sample files to import them inside your own DAW.
Please note: You are not allowed to export the track from the Ableton Project file and release it as it is. But you are free to edit the project file content, re-arrange, import your own MIDI melodies and make a brand-new track. Then you can release it to the music market as a commercial track.
