Future Chill with Crystal Skies

Sonic Academy proudly welcomes brand new tutor Aaron Dawson – one half of Crystal Skies, to take us through How To Make Future Chill.

Crystal Skies have collabed with mega producers such as Seven Lions and Au5, and also remixed Slander, Above and Beyond and Illenium – These guys are in the big league when it comes to production and here we get to see how Aaron builds this epic track from scratch.

Starting with the beautiful chord progression we layer synths and instruments to build on the ‘wall of sound’ created. Using extensive resampling and audio editing techniques there’s a ton of tips and tricks here from building and creating the all-important fills to making smooth transitions between sections.

Aaron also limits his use of third party plugins in this course proving that with just a handful of tools, selecting the right sounds and using your DAW’s potential you can also achieve amazing results!
