Hard techno production


New member
I'm a begginer in hard techno production and I have few question that need to be answered:
1. Where can i find good hard techno (1999-2005 era) style loops?
2. Where can I find lessons and tutorial how produce this kind of style? - dont say youtube beacuse there are only few of them and most tutorial are minimal techno.
3. Which vsti are most popular for this kind of techno?

If you break the song down it is pretty simple.
Just listen to the individual sounds
For instance:
Kicks - K---K---K---K---K---K---K---K
Then you have your hats on the offbeat with a delay and slight reverb, then you have a few percussive hits, then add another with 3 hits slightly quicker hits then you have rides kicking in with a slight delay. Also try panning said instruments slightly.
Bass sounds like its sidechained.

A good thing with hard techno / schranz its all about the drive and percussion try breaking every little instrument down and it should help you
