The Art of Trade-offs in Music Production: Finding the Perfect Balance

Sep 02, 2023 Tutorial
Over the years, I've picked up a valuable rule of thumb that's relevant not just in music production, but in many areas of life as well. The essence is this: every action you take involves a trade-off. Take sound mixing, for instance. If you crank up the volume on one track, you're inevitably going to drown out the others. Make everything equally loud, and you lose the elements that should stand out. Plus, boosting the volume too much can sacrifice the dynamics and transparency of the whole mix. So, it's all about finding that perfect balance, that sweet spot where you're giving up just enough to achieve the result you're aiming for.

The Importance of Problem-Solving in Music Production: Finding Solutions Rather Than Relying on New Gear

Aug 31, 2023 Tutorial
The person in the video talks about a German saying that if you want something, you find ways, and if you don't want it, you find reasons. They apply this saying to their music productions and explain that instead of buying new plug-ins or gear to solve their problems, it's better to find a solution using what they already have. They believe it's important to get to the root of the problem and solve it rather than relying on new purchases. They suggest viewing new plug-ins and gear as fun toys to play with rather than problem solvers.

Embracing Action: Don't Overthink, Just Do

Aug 21, 2023 Tutorial
The video advises against overthinking and encourages taking action instead. It suggests that starting something and not worrying about the outcome is important. If I don't like what I've started, I can simply start fresh and try something new. The process of doing, practicing, and gaining new information can lead to improvement over time. Eventually, I may even realize that what I had initially thought was not so bad after all. The key takeaway is to take action and avoid overthinking.

How to Learn the Grid: Trial and Error, Research, and Problem Solving in Music Production

Aug 21, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I discuss how to learn and understand the grid in music production. Many people have misconceptions that taking a course will make them a professional musician, but that's not how it works. A course can provide the basics, but real learning happens through trial and error, researching and experimenting. I explain that it's important to overcome problems on your own and develop problem-solving skills. It's not about memorizing individual modules, but rather understanding how to use them in different contexts. I emphasize the importance of researching online, reading the manual, and exploring different resources to gain knowledge. I also share my own process of learning, documenting, and experimenting with patches. Learning music production is an ongoing process that involves constant learning and building experience.
