The Producer Project was designed to help take a complete beginner from not knowing anything about music production to being able to put out quality tracks and pursue their dreams. In an attempt to simplify things, the process has been broken down into the three following steps:

1. Learning How to Produce – [YouTube Tutorials]
2. Mixing & Mastering – [Mixing & Mastering Guide]
3. Marketing & Presentation – [To Be Continued]

Dillon Eason says:

I liked the video just for the intro. I’m currently paused at 0:29 and I just want to say that someone with such a genuine approach to education in this fashion has my highest respect. Okay, unpausing now.

Bob Burke says:

I’m finding your video very helpful so far but i just have one question about the piano roll. On your screen there is all the different keys but on mine i only see c10, c9 etc. Is there a way to change the settings? Sorry if its a stupid question I’m a complete beginner and just trying to figure it out

DCTV DubzCo says:

great tut my friend but 1 thing I notice is your a little confused as to what ‘native’ plugins are, Native plugs, are all plug-ins that do not require dedicated hardware such as a UAD DSP FX Card. Doesnt mean plugins that come with a said DAW, it means any plugin that uses your Computer processor. Thank you much for info though im coming from Reason/CUbase so this is a very different worflow, THank you again
