Heyo! Music production just like

Heyo! Music production just like

Heyo!

Music production just like any craft has a TON of skills that are related to it.

Recording, mixing, writing hooks, knowing your DAW, sound design, etc… the list goes on.

Sometimes the sheer magnitude of things to learn in and around producing music will invite the question:

What should you focus on next?
What are your strengths… weaknesses?
What are the most fundamentals areas of focus, have you got them down?

In this video, we’ll be going over all the various skillsets and areas of focus within the realm of music production and ranking them from the MOST important to the LEAST important.

Hopefully, this will give you some insights on what you should focus on next, and, perhaps even more importantly, NOT focus on.

So sit down, get comfortable and grab your favorite beverage because we’re going to jump in and rank all of these music production skills in order of importance:

This will undoubtedly shift depending on your specific music production journey and where your unique skills lie!

Also, I’ve love to know how YOU would rank these various skillsets? Obviously, I’m biased so I’d love to get your perspective πŸ™‚

Hey all! I’m happy to

Hey all! I’m happy to

Hey all! I’m happy to celebrate the end of the week by sharing this new dub techno jam where I’m using the ableton live to record, add effects and control the sequence.

Here’s a brief explanation of the set up:

Digitakt: does the drums, bass and arpeggio with the filter cutoff, resonance and envelope controled with the novation launchcontrol
Microfreak: used for the melody in the breakdown part
Ableton: adds delay and reverb effects on drums, does the pad + extra synth in breakdown part, using arturia pigments VST, also I control the mute’s and the general sequence there
Ipad running samplr app: delayed voice effect, goes into digitakt’s delay

I hope you like it and enjoy a great weekend ahead!
