In regards to setting up your DAW and the tools used, every producer differs slightly from the next. Some start with a synth line, others drums, but most producers will find themselves gravitating towards the same set tools time and time again.

In the first of a new three-part series, Point Blank producer Rob Rox (Banks, Munk) looks at how to create your own templates in Logic Pro X including sidechain setups and signal chain settings. It’s a way to streamline the production process and allow the creative juices to flow when the urge presents itself, rather than spending unneeded time setting up your DAW every time.
