► Intro/Writing Chords and Melody:
In the first video we go over the elements of a typical Kygo style track, and we write some chords and a melody that is similar to his style and common tendencies.
► Picking Sounds:
Next we put some sounds to our chords, melody, and bassline, that sound the most like sounds Kygo would use such as a tropical flute lead, and poppy piano. For this part we use sounds created in Serum as well as sounds from Nexus.
After we have picked our sounds, we build a basic drum loop to be the foundation for our drop section. We use a mid-tempo four-on-the-floor drumbeat, to stick with the Tropical House feel.
► Making the Track Skeleton:
In this part, we create a very barebones arrangement of what we want our track to sound like, before we go more into detail on FX and additional sounds.
► Finishing the Track:
Finally we fill in our skeleton with supplemental sounds and FX, leading us to our final product.
