What kind of styles? DAW specific?

I mainly produce Techno or slower wavier stuff. I have Ableton and a bunch of hardware.

But actually I don’t care so much what the tutorials are about. I like to see others peoples workflow and take out what I could use for myself. Also the EDM guys have some valuable tips, even if I don’t like their music at all. But for sure I prefer if the tips are about alternative electronic music.

I can’t go the ones where the presenters/voiceovers are nauseatingly insincere. “Hey guys its AARON! And today I’m going to take twenty minutes to bore you about my life before I finally introduce the subject I’ve titled this Youtube video after and then only tell you stuff you already know!”

I also hate the ones where there’s no enthusiasm at all, all the sounds of the world’s loneliness in a sadboi’s bedroom set-up.

I’ve just started trying to making my own tunes and have found these channels helpful

I like Andrew Huang’s tutorial videos. They aren’t too boring and a lot of times quite informative.

Tache Teaches is a fave. He’s a bit of a Bitwig wizard.

Michel from deep techno label Hypnus has some greta Ableton videos.

I can get well lost in a YouTube tutorial…

Divkid for modular (though this got more about product placement and a bit boring over the last year)…

Elphnt for Ableton

These for chords

VCV Rack is a great free virtual modular platform and this guys videos are really great. He’s super enthusiastic and really helpful. Explains everything really well and you can even download his patches. Personally I like to just follow along and learn that way.

Hardware modular is not something that’s ever really appealed to me but if you’re looking for a break from the standard DAW this is the way to go and Omri is your man. He starts from the very basics to get you started.

I’m currently lost down a Eurorack rabbit hole too… but I digress.

The two guys from Disclosure are incredibly open and giving with their knowledge, refreshingly so. Not my bag but have picked up a few tips about drum busses and EQ’ing from them on YT.

A few other interesting ones I follow…
