That Noisia vid is just amazing.

I could choose any of SeamlessR's videos, but this one made something click for me regarding sound design:

The first thing, which is present is in all of his tuts of course, is how frigging powerful Patcher (or any modular environment really) is for sound design workflow. Another is the idea of using bandpasses to do frequency splitting, and then modulating the cutoffs of those for creating interesting movement. Probably nothing new to most people, but I find this a handy pattern that you can apply to anything, not just sick neuro basses.

Overview and workflow: NGHTMRE @ UCSD (
Sound design: Virtual Riot - Studio Time (

Actually, everything by Virtual Riot is great. I've learned the most from his videos.

Probably oldschool now, but I loved Airbase tutorials really a lot. They teached me a ton of stuff back then.
He made a new one lately, considering he might return to doing them again.

...he does more arrangement oriented "wlakthroughs", but with sound design tips. And they are awesome.

Here are some I've been collecting:

Here are all of Mr. Bill's Ableton 8/9 tutorials he has publicly available. ( Even if you don't make his kind of music, he is a wizard at moving around the Ableton interface and working with audio so you can learn a lot just by watching how he does what he does, even if you're not absorbing all the content. He's also done some good tutorials ( for Dubspot. (

Here's a little playlist with all of SeamlessR's "Learn With Splice" videos about synthesis ( If you have FL Studio, you can download the projects on Splice and actually mess around with what you watch him do in the video. Even without FL studio, it's a great primer on the fundamentals of subtractive, FM, and additive synthesis and will probably make your life as a beginner much less daunting.

Not a tutorial video, but I think every beginner should watch this ill Gates video ( about his workflow and mindset philosophies. If someone had shown me this when I first started trying to make music three years ago, I would probably have developed twice as fast as I have with my music.

Serum users should take a day to study these Serum tutorials done by Steve Duda himself ( from the ICON collective in LA. They go through each part of the synth section by section, so you'll hear from the creator himself how everything works.

Here's a quick Laidback Luke vlog ( about some good philosophies to keep in mind when writing melodies, mixing, and when trying to learn arrangements as a new producer. He also gives his personal philosophy on presets which you may or may not agree with, but as long as you're getting the sound you want, it doesn't really matter.

While not a sound design or production tutorial (, here's a great seminar from Laidback Luke about DJing, song selection, and the #RealDJing thing that started last year.

I think the new Chainsmokers Future Music Mag video is very insightful

For anyone who has trouble with song arrangement and breaking out of the 8 bar loop land, here's a great video summary of one of the most common methods to learn how to arrange a track ( It's a really effective way to learn a few arrangements so you don't feel so lost, and eventually you'll start to learn how you like to arrange your work and won't have to worry about it anymore!

And if you think you need a lot of synthesizers and gear to make great music, watch this video on how the famous Prodigy track "Smack My Bitch Up" ( was made with clever usage of sampling and audio manipulation.

There is a fantastic collection of masterclass tutorial videos (drum 'n' bass) in this post at dnbforum (http://"").  There's something for everyone in there! :)
