Portamento! (different from pimento 🍸)

The Portamento knob is one of my favorite little go-to knobs when I'm adjusting a synth parameter.

Typically this has to do with monophonic patches, like a lead, sax or string instrument, because that's when portamento natually happens.

Don't know what I'm talking about? Click the video and let me show you. :)

Breakdown of a Max Martin Production

Now and then I run into an amazing YouTuber that really can break down a track. If you’re like me you crave these kinds of breakdowns, especially of hit songs, because it’s the perfect storm for learning the secrets of the great producers. 

Max Martin has been one of my favorite producers of all time. To this day he cranks out hit after hit. And in this production he does a lot of side-chain compression techniques which we talk about a lot in our class.

Enjoy the video!
