    It’s great to see that you’ve released it!

    Chris, would you say that there is a fair amount of content in this course to benefit those who aren’t just starting out? I’ve picked up some useful ideas from the Pocket Tips collection, so was hoping that there will be some of the latter chapters (videos) dedicated to more advanced topics than the fundamental videos of the course. I was looking for an index of topics covered but couldn’t find a detailed list. If at all possible, if I were to request such a list via email could you provide one?

    Also, are all of the demonstrations centric around only free instruments or will there be any coverage on commercial instruments? I understand the reasoning behind using Reaper and the curated list so that the content is accessible to the broadest demographic. This was just a curiosity. I’m sure what is shown, regardless of the tool, is universally applicable.

    Either way, I undoubtably trust that this will be a great course considering what I’ve seen from OD in the past. Best wishes guys!

      Hi VHS,

      Thank you for your support and lovely comments :) As far as what’s in the course, sure! I’ll look into adding a detailed section to the main course page soon, but for now…

      It really depends on where you draw the line when it comes to starting out – assuming you already know your way around a DAW, if you are genuinely comfortable with how and why subtractive synthesis, digital audio, effects (reverb, delay, overdrive, bit crushing, filtering, phasing, flanging, chorus, eq, compression, limiting) and are au fait with signal chain and how some of the more advanced functions of software studios like bussing and multiple routings work then honestly speaking you might find there’s not a great deal in OD Total Music Production you don’t already know. If you’ve done a lot of that stuff intuitively and sort of got your own way of doing things without ever having things ‘click’ then I think you’ll get a lot out of the course, and if you’re genuinely unsure about a lot of the things mentioned then it’ll be perfect for you.

      As for the software, everything is based around the freeware but you’re correct, the tuition is transferrable because we’re looking at the hows and whys, not just the whats :)

      Thanks again and if you have any more questions let me know!

        Thanks for the answers, Chris.

        I think I’m going to go ahead and invest in the course even if it’s just to support the site. I really like how Oh Drat focuses on creative concepts that will get used daily as opposed to the usual step by step tutorials covering how to reproduce a specific synth sound that happens to be en vogue at the moment or some-such. OD has a relaxed, peer-to-peer feel to it and doesn’t come off as some rote academic training from a professor type who knows the tech but doesn’t actually make music. I want to support that so that hopefully we will be able to see more videos in the future, especially those that cover more advanced techniques. I’m sure there will be various “Ah ha” moments anyway due to the simple fact that your workflow and approach may differ from mine. There’s nothing wrong with revisiting the fundamentals either. I’m sure I’ll still learn something. :-)

        Two quick questions though. Do you spend a fair deal of time discussing sample chopping/manipulation or is it very brief? Also, once purchased, is there a limit on the time to view the course? I ask because I can’t foresee if I will actually have time to view it (hence me not being able to take part in the early bird testing).

        I’ll likely fork out for the course in a few hours.

          Oh that’s very kind, thank you VHS! Don’t, though, feel any pressure to buy the course simply to support – it wouldn’t be fair to lean on our readers like that – but your support is appreciated. If after looking through the contents you realise the value’s just not there for you, I won’t be offended if you request a refund.

          Oh, and there’s no time limit on the course – buy once, see forever – and there’s around 45 minutes on recording and editing audio in the DAW and 25 on chopping and slicing in a sampler, plus extra crossover here and there :)

          All the best!

            No worries. Already purchased it. Cheers! :)
