In our latest tutorial, we delve into the intricate process of creating Minimal House Pads Like The Pros.
Pads, although often overlooked in this style of music, can play a significant role in shaping the atmosphere of your tracks. They may seem simplistic at first glance, but when you hear tracks from producers like Kolter, Chris Stussy, Janaret, M-High, & many others, utilising those full spectrum-filling Pad sounds, you can begin to see why their tracks sound so good on a musical level. Pads offer versatility, help to drive our tracks along, add depth & thickness to a mix, and keep the energy levels of a track varied.
Throughout this tutorial, we cover everything you need to know to perfect those Pads. We start by discussing the crucial role that pads might play in enhancing your mix, before diving into the art of MIDI programming for both chords & single note lines, ensuring your pads harmonise seamlessly with your music. We also discuss the key component of sound design, including selecting the right sounds, which plugins are "best", and how to layer to achieve the right overall texture. Finally, we move onto one of the most vital steps in audio processing, looking at how to get those Pads sitting in the right place in your mix.
