FaderPro The Science of Sound Time-Based Effects

Get a full grounding in time-based effects like delay, chorus, phaser and flanger, and learn how to use them to the fullest in your mixes

Journey deep into the world of time-based effects with Jono Buchanan, and discover the variety of ways you can use them to create inspiring sounds and hone your mixes. Whether you’re looking to thicken a sound up with stereo width, give the impression that multiple players are contributing to an instrument track, or add subtle or pronounced echoes to a vocal channel; you’ll find everything you need to know in this course.

Over the course of two hours, you’ll build a strong understanding of time-based effects like delay, chorus, phaser and flanger, learning the ways in which they work and how they can be applied in the context of a mix. These are all techniques that have been used by audio engineers for decades, and in this course Jono will familiarise you with the modern software tools you can use to harness them yourself today.

At the end of this course you’ll know the difference between feedback and mix level, how to control the stereo width on a ping pong delay, and how to add polyrhythmic variation and stereo interest to your drum programming. You’ll also know how to use a time-based effect plugin as either an insert or an auxiliary effect, and learn which method is best for you at a particular moment of the mixing process. As well as this, you’ll get a grounding in characterful time-based techniques like regenerative delay and slapback echo that have made a huge impact on whole genres of music.

In total, there are twelve chapters of content in The Science of Sound - Time-Based Effects, and once you’ve signed up you can watch the video lessons at a pace that suits, and return as many times as needed. All of the production techniques that are covered in this course are explored through audio examples in a Logic Pro session, so you will hear for yourself the amazing effect they can have on a mix.

This course is part of the Science of Sound series, which goes deeper into important music production topics that you'll use again and again in your own projects. Understanding the fundamentals behind concepts like delay, reverb, equalisation, compression, and the way in which we as engineers and listeners perceive sound will allow you to approach your productions with a greater confidence, purpose and know-how.
No PhD needed, the science-y parts are explained by our awesome educators in a way that anyone can understand!
