In this episode, I talk to Jake Shanahan, now the artist simply known as Shanahan.
We talk about a range of topics such as layering, processing bass sounds, and creating your own unique sound.
Jake very kindly decided to put up a free Sylenth1 preset pack along with MIDI files from some of his popular tracks. You can grab that preset pack here.
What we talk about:
- Processing bass sounds
- Simplifying build-ups but retaining tension & energy
- Creating your own unique sound
- Systematically approaching layering sounds
- Battling writer’s block
- Mixing at lower volumes
