I loved the technical techniques shown in mixing and creating tracks. I also liked the examples and demonstrations.
I have learned other ways to arrange and some good suggestions regarding mixing. Have also inspired me how to keep doing what I do and why.
It was an incredible journey that helped me through recording my new EP. I learned so much about Logic and the functions it has. I also learned a lot about myself and my creative process and the type of music I make. 10/10 would recommend to friends. <3
Very thorough, learned a lot of little tips and tricks that will help bring my production quality up. Especially happy to learn some industry standard things I wasn't aware of before. Also feel more confident that if I'm vigilant, I can start getting the right people to notice me. Most importantly though, I learned how important it is to be positive and HAVE FUN! Thanks so much for this!
