Hello, glad you ‘ve made it here.
My name is Marc and I started making music on computers in 2000 (in fact it was my parents computer). A friend gave me a freewareprogram called Jeskola Buzz and a few of his own samples, so that I could start out making beats. The software came with a few synths but no drum sounds. So I had to build up my own library. This made me learn a lot but it didn’t give me quick, good sounding results. I had to work hard to get the music sounding the way I wanted. My motivation kept me progressing while my progresses kept me motivated.
Since then a lot has happened in the industry. The choice of good audio hard- and software has expanded drastically. It’s a lot easier today to get a quick start in beat making. But also the number of bad hard- and software has increased, often aggressively promoted with false promises. You’re told things like you’re gonna be an award winning producer in no time with no effort when buying their product.
I like to help you by clarifying which products are worth their money and which ones aren’t.
As an audio professional for over 10 years I work with audio software on a daily basis (Pro Tools in general). I have worked (and still work) at several TV- and radio stations and in a post production studio (working on movie sound). I ‘ve been producing music for TV, ran a small label for electronic music, built my own studio and earned (and still earn) some good money as a DJ.
Of course I still create music with my computer. So I spend a huge amount of time with audio soft- and hardware, working hard, getting things done as well as having fun, playing around, creating music.
I started this site to share my knowledge and experience so you can benefit from that. I also like to inspire and motivate, because music making is so much more than the technical aspect of it. It’s about getting your ideas out, losing yourself in sounds, rhythm and melodies, getting stuck, having a break, regaining inspiration, being totally excited and a lot more.
When you have ideas, comments, questions or know something I don’t, feel free to contribute in the comments section. You can also contact me directly via the contact form.
Have fun and be creative!
