I have been fortunate enough to spend most of my life in and around the electronic music scene. As an accomplished sound engineer, I have had the unique pleasure of working on everything from acoustic recordings to dance floor ready monsters.
However, the area I’ve always been most fascinated with is the difficult task of taking our enthusiasm and ideas and turning them into a finished product.
Have you ever started making a track only to have the creative process killed by technical perfection? Learning the tools and techniques is essential but let me ask you, do you think it’s more important to know how to use a compressor or how to structure an arrangement? Would you rather know how to layer snares or write captivating music?
