    Music School online?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hello everybody!

    What do you guys think about taking online courses (PointBlank, DubSpot etc.)? Are they worth the money? Or do you think I should rather try to learn everything on my own? Here's a little info about me:

    - I'm a professional classical musician (I am doing contemporary classical, jazz, folk etc.)
    - I have a basic knowledge of my DAW (logic)
    - I have a basic knowledge of synthesis
    - I know NOTHING about production techniques, mixing and mastering, fx etc.

    Long story short - The technicalities of music production are overwhelming to me. What I feel I need to learn is:
    - workflow
    - fx (compression, eq etc.)
    - sound design
    - various production techniques.

    Artists I am into: Bonobo, Tycho, Flume, Faithless, Hiatus

    I'd be grateful for any tips

    It may help. But production with respect to the mixing and mastering takes a good ear. The technical ability is really just working in the mixer (adjusting volume, adding effects). It can get detailed, but I think a good ear for music is really the best asset. If you've been working with music for a long time, it's a lot easier to know a good mix from a bad one.

    You can probably learn on YouTube for free, but you'll have to search through the bad videos as well. A paid for class is guaranteed to be helpful and accurate.
