RSR145 – Derek Olds – Pop Production Tips In Logic, Ableton, And Melodyne

Derek Talked about using Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, and Celemony Melodyne fpr pop production, building live loops for performing, Justin Timberlake vocal production secrets, and nailing the low end in your programmed drums.

My guest today is Derek Olds, and independent artist working on his own solo record, and also an Instructor at The Los Angeles Film & Recording School in Hollywood. He is heavily involved in the Audio & Tech worlds and has run the Celemony Melodyne booths at NAMM, AES, IMSTA, and the Grammy P&E party from 2014 to 2018, where we met.

He has produced or performed over 1200 live shows worldwide in over 10 countries, and is currently planning his upcoming tour in support of his first solo record release. And over the past decade, Derek has had the pleasure of sharing his talent with many of his idols such as Prince, Oprah Winfrey, Bone Thugs, Common, A Tribe Called Quest, & Justin Bieber to name a few.  

Derek often describes the 'computer' as just another instrument - another tool to convey emotion.  As a result , he has strived and excelled in every aspect of modern music from writing, to performing, to production and sound engineering, resulting in truly individual records.

Derek has his hands in many aspects of the music business in Los Angeles as Artist, Producer, & Engineer and I look forward to digging into some great questions about modern pop production, and see what new things we can also learn about one of my favorite production tools, Melodyne.
