The Hardstyle Mixing & Mastering Course™ is offline. You can now learn the best mixing strategies in the new Mixing EDM Music guide.


In this video there’s a quick setup of a Sylenth1 rawstyle lead & melody in FL Studio. It’s a short snippet that shows a very simple song structure and melody buildup.

Just like my previous video “lesson”, it’s a little presentation of a hardstyle lead and melody in action.

Musical layering

This shows once more that using different melody layers can really add musical value to a song. The setup is very basic, but playing some different loops together makes it interesting.

Bear in mind though that you need to use the same musical scale and chords when you build different layers. They have to follow your scale and chords to sound pleasing and correct.

Of course, at the end of the day it’s also a matter of taste. Whether you like it or not isn’t really important here. It’s about all the possibilities musical layering can bring.

In fact, if you use different musical layers that “loop” correctly, transitions in your song almost take care of themselves.
