I was a total novice in terms of music production in the world of DAWs before I took Martin’s Ableton course at the Sound Training College, Dublin. However, my introduction to Ableton has changed the way I write my music, offering infinitely more possibilities for sonic adventure than, say, one voice and one guitar did.
With Martin’s guidance, I have seen a rapid development in my understanding of recording as a craft and the ability to make the sounds I hear in my head actually come to life in Ableton.
Ever since I first set foot in a studio, I have always wanted to be the guy at the controls. I wanted total control over my music from pen and page to the finishing touches of the mix. Martin and Vas have helped me get the ball rolling in this regard and I am seeing some real results.
I am confident I will be able to release my own self-produced EP in the coming months of 2015.
Moreover, Martin’s encouragement, positive attitude and pragmatic criticisms have helped me to reaffirm my love of writing music
