HOW I CHOOSE THE BEST AUDIO INTERFACE

 I've had quite a bit of experience with audio interfaces over my time. Now, when you first start, it's going to be a price point situation, and it's trying to get your best bang-for-buck. Also, keep in mind that when you're starting off your ears aren't tuned, your hearing palate hasn't developed. So even having the best converters aren't going to do you much good, because you don't know what sounds good and what sounds bad. A lot of people don't have a huge budget when they start, so they kind of look around and look at what everyone else...

THESE ARE THE TOP 3 PLUGINS FOR 2019

The first of my personal favourite plugins that I’m using in 2019 is the Leapwing DynOne by Leapwing Audio. Now, it’s quite processor-heavy, so I tend to use it lightly. But it’s a multi-band compressor. It’s a great plugin just for getting some quick multi-band stuff going, and it’s got some perfect-sounding filters in there.

From my experience in the music industry, I've worked out why some people are successful and why you're not, and what you need to do to change that.

Now and then I get Shiny Object Syndrome, where I'm like "I want to try doing that, and I want to be successful at that. They're making loads of money, so why not?" It's relatively common for people to be blind to the grind and...

3 HACKS TO DISCOVER YOUR SOUND

The number one hack for finding your sound is you need to look at the music that you listen to mainly. So what you're trying to do is find the genre that you work in. You need to attach yourself to a genre, and I'd say the fastest way to do that is asking yourself "What are you listening to the most, what do you like?" Amateurs say this all the time: "Oh, it's very difficult to find my genre because I'm into this and that." It's like, "No, just pick a genre." It's what you're into; that is what...

THE SURPRISING WAY TO MAKE MONEY FROM MUSIC

Let me tell you about a way of making money out of doing it just on YouTube. If you're writing music, the best way to do this is to pick one channel and make sure you're the king of that channel. Don't try and spread yourself across all of them because you won't be able to promote yourself within them. The way that you promote yourself on YouTube with your music is you'll put tracks up that are within your genre. You then link your tags, descriptions, and everything around that as a genre and around other artists that are...
