Early Life and Career

Introduction to the Masterclass and its chapters.

Florian explains how he approaches music production and how he stays creative.

Modular Synthesis

Overview of the modular synth setup, how it’s interconnected, and synced together.

Florian’s starting point in this masterclass is the combination of beat and bassline to form a foundation for a whole track.

Now it’s time for the hook melody – Florian is playing it with the Beatstep Pro sequencer and the travel modular rack.

To fill the harmonic space, Florian adds atmospheric elements like a drone, which he patches and automates.

Arranging, Mixing & Mastering

Now Florian is moving to the DAW (Cubase) to arrange the track on the computer. This involves cutting the recorded layers and moving them around, looping sections or muting parts that are not needed.

In this chapter the recorded stereo groups are mixed in Cubase and some effects are added.

The analog mastering is the last step in the production of this track — Florian shows you how he makes the final audio processing on his mastering chain.

Live Performance

Florian talks about how he progressed from being a DJ to a live act and the challenges involved.
