Ørjan Nilsen

Watch Ørjan Nilsen write a club banger live, unscripted. 

Coming off his recent hit collaboration “Flashlight” with Armin Van Burren, Ørjan is commonly asked how he designs his sounds and creates his signature “feel” in his music. In this 789ten studio session you will watch him produce the song that you hear in the trailer starting from a basic kickdrum. Dive headfirst into live production with Ørjan Nilsen and get an exclusive look at his instinctive decision making and writing process. He reveals how he makes big leads and one of his signature electro bass patches from scratch using Sylenth, Spire, and Massive throughout the tutorial.

One of the specific topics this session caters to is mixing with EQ. Gain insight on how he hones in on specific frequencies to pick the most favourable aspect of each sound. By observing him produce live and unscripted, you’ll see why he makes the decisions he does. You can apply this knowledge and producer mentality to your own production workflow. One of the special qualities about Ørjan as a producer is that he is a true musician at heart. Examine how he puts together his melodies and chords, playing everything live and methodically adjusting all of the midi.

Follow along as he provides in depth education on FX Processing, songwriting/arrangement, drum sequencing, transient shaping and reverb tricks that you easily can implement into your own projects.

You don’t need expensive gear.
