A good workman never blames his tools…or does he?
Today we’re going to be talking about the age old producer dilemma: should you switch DAWs?
In fact, should you be making any major new purchases for your studio at all?
As a music producer, it’s easy to get your sights set on a brand new piece of gear that will seemingly flick the switch for the quality of your music.
And in some cases a major overhaul is the right thing to do, because sometimes taking a pit stop, changing the tires and refueling can help you to make the fastest progress.
But in most cases, any new addition to your studio setup only forces your attention away from your creativity, and onto research, admin and learning instead.
So how do you know when the time is right to bring a new acquisition into the studio? How can you minimize the disruption and make this a record breaking pit stop?
Well in this episode I’ve got a number of perspectives to share with you, plus a ton of experience of times when I succeeded – and when I messed it right up – so you’ve got a strategy for moving forward to getting the results you really want for your music.
