Introducing Com Truise’s First Ever Writing Lab (Limited Places)

You do not want to sleep on this!

Soundfly has teamed up with synthwave artist Com Truise to host his first ever month-long learning cohort, with weekly Zoom calls, projects, discussions, feedback and more, in an intimate group environment.

It’s like a small, in-depth, graduate-level college seminar — you’ll get nerdy about warbling synths, retro-sounding drum machines, and how to mix them together to create songs that transport listeners to other worlds — guided and led by Seth Haley.

This writing lab runs from May 29 to June 30, 2023.

Are you ready? Sign up before May 12 to benefit from a pre-sale discount of $200 off using the promo code: PRESALE

What Will I Learn?

Great question! Here’s a basic outline of the course syllabus:

Week 1: Sound & Synths

The first week will focus on Com Truise’s inspiration and love of sound. We’ll look at some of his favorite gear, his approach to synthesis and sound design, and how he created some of his iconic sounds.

Week 2: Drums & Beats

The second week will focus on Com Truise’s love of retro-sounding drum machines combined with futuristic devices and interesting rhythms. We can look at some of his most compelling rhythms and talk about how students can create their own.

Week 3: Arranging Week

The third week will look at how Com Truise puts different pieces of a track together to turn it into a song. We’ll look at some of his iconic songs and remixes, and how he approached them — then challenge you to do the same for your projects.

Week 4: Engineering Week

The fourth week will focus on Com Truise’s approach to mixing and mastering, and how he engineers his tracks.

Final Project & Certificate

At the end, you’ll get a final “report card” of sorts with feedback on your final project from Com Truise himself, as well as a certificate affirming your completion of the course.

Learning Is Better With a Cohort

Peer-group learning, or cohort learning, features an active hands-on project-based methodology, replete with live workshops, interaction with the instructor as well as other musicians, chat and breakout groups, and community support and feedback.
