Do Producers Earn Money?

Answering the most frequently asked questions about producers according to YouTube’s auto-complete search function, including…

Do producers own masters?
Do producers make money?
Do producers use presets?
Do producers have to clear samples?

I keep screwing up my audio levels, so sorry about that. It’s mostly fixed but still crummy in places. Not up to my normal standard so sorry about that!

How To Edit Music Videos

A simple guide to editing music videos for YouTube. I’m using Vegas Movie Studio, but the theory here can be applied to any editing software.

Live Sampling & Radio Walkman

I recently got hold of a cassette walkman with AM/FM radio, for use in my live synth rig. I can live sample long, evolving pads or ambient effects from cassette tape to give a retro, vapourwave-esque feel to performances. I also discover that I can sample live radio shows for an interesting, but much less controllable, effect.

Does Gear Matter?

Adam Neely recently uploaded this video entitled “Does Gear Matter?” It’s here, feel free to watch it before you watch mine, it’s a good video.

I agree with him entirely, but feel he stopped short of making a really crucial point. Crucial in my opinion anyway. The answer to “does gear matter?” is, in my opinion, “no, as long as it inspires you”
