In this free video, Pro Tools Expert Deputy Editor Dan Cooper is joined by his wife Georgie to bring The Pro Tools Expert Community a new free tutorial series that shows you how they produce their music in Pro Tools. This series will cover every aspect of their music production workflow starting at the demo stage, through to production, mixing and mastering.
Known as GeorgieDAN, these two have produced countless live videos of their original songs for their GeorgieDAN YouTube channel. These videos provide GeorgieDAN with more than just publicity content, over the last few years, GeorgieDAN has been working with a unique pre-production method that enables them to start their music production stages with these YouTube performance videos as a starting point (template) in Pro Tools.
Well written, arranged and performed demo recordings are always at the heart of GeorgieDAN's music productions. Those components combined in demo recordings make for effortless production and mix stages. Watch this Stage 1 video to see how they record their demos. In the coming weeks, Stage 2 will cover:
- How GeorgieDAN mix these "live to camera" recordings for promotional YouTube videos
- How they prepare their "live to camera" mixes for importing into new Pro Tools sessions for production including how they set a live demo (not recorded to a click) to a set tempo (bpm) in Pro Tools.
