Diego Stocco is a sound artist. He sculpts sound with his own set of sonic tools and he expertly shapes it with audio plugins. Watch this course. Learn his secrets and unleash your creativity as you explore Diego's world of sound design.
Diego is a world renown composer, music sound designer and performer. He creates eclectic compositions using custom-built instruments, common objects, elements of nature and experimental recording techniques.
This three part course starts out with a collection of tutorials that explore rhythmic processing. Here, Diego shows you how to create a complete percussion ensemble from a single recording of guitar strings being struck with sticks. The audio processing chain that he's designed is a signal flow masterpiece. It’s like he creates something out of nothing. It’s truly magical.
Next, Diego takes you on a convolution journey. Here is where you learn how to create unusual and stunning impulse responses that become resonant models that you can use to further modify and convolve regular audio into morphed, spectrally sublime versions of the originals. This is not to be missed!
Part 3 of this course teaches you how to creatively capture, modify and perform sound in ways that open up your imagination like no other recording course anywhere. With his inventive microphone and acoustical recording techniques Diego, like a hi-tech, sonic surgeon, microscopically inserts microphones into places where sounds are born to capture their very audio essence. Watch and see how these close-up, molecular stereo miking techniques and acoustic processing strategies reveal audio landscapes and percussion sounds that cannot be produced any other way.
This is a great course for expanding your musical arsenal by expanding the way sounds are created. Diego Stocco does a great job of explaining how to create different sounds via micing technique and use of filtering to create otherworldly atmospheres. He opens the possibilities for new ways to create percussion and rhythm in innovative ways. Fun stuff!

This guy is a genius! Amazing and very recommendable course to open up (and blow) your mind. I didn´t give 5 stars because everything is a bit quick explained, as an overview instead of a in-deep tutorial. But well, I guess Diego wants us to experiment ourselves instead of copying him. Watch it right now!

Really interesting processing techniques that can be applied to any sound in your library.

A great course. Diego has a passion for what he does and this comes through. Lots of great ideas to help you break away from the more common techniques. It has given me a drive to get experimenting with different ways of recording, processing and gathering sounds. As Diego would say, it all starts with your imagination.

I thought this video series was excellent! Really enjoyable and inspirational!
I don't think this would necessarily help 'beginners' because it really does assume you already have a grasp on a lot of foundational things and moves at a quick pace, but I don't think this is a negative, just something to be aware of.
Hope to see some more videos with Diego Stocco! :D
