TURN LOOPS INTO FULL SONGS
...With the Gear You Already Own
Let me guess, you’re frustrated with how your dance tracks are turning out in your home studio. They don’t have that “pro studio” sound that you want to achieve. The truth is, you’re not alone.
But I have some good news, and some bad news for you.
First the bad news: If you think that buying a new synth or drum machine, upgrading your audio interface, or trying the latest plugin is the answer, then you’re looking in the wrong place.
Gear has very little bearing on whether or not you will churn out great sounding recordings.
But that brings us to the good news: if you have a basic DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), microphone, an audio interface, and some simple music software – then you already own everything you need to churn out professional electronic music.

Before you can improve your Music you’re going to have to completely change your mindset. You’ve been over and over in magazines and on internet forums, and by your “expert” audio friends that gear is the answer.
