Hello! My name is Adrian, or aiDer if you refer to my artist name. I’m a 21 year old producer from Tønsberg, Norway, focusing mainly on “A State of Trance”ish dance trance (yeah) or thats what I want to master!
I bought Cubase 6, December 2011, and began exploring electronic music production with VSTs as Massive, Nexus and Sylenth1. But because of school I was distracted and didnt reach the focus needed to really kick off this passion. But now Im ready and have prepared my mind to use thousands of hours learning this art.
When I produce at this early stage I notice that the time put into producing a song is 10% creativity and 90% technical issues, searching youtube or google for “how to mix in hihats”, “what settings for side-chaining” and so on.. Which can be frustrating at times, since I can't seem to get the ideas in my head out in a professional way. So..
.. I made a home page (link above), so I can push myself to learn all that technical stuff so after awhile the time I put into songs can be 90% creativity and 10% technical issues. There I will post for example the best youtube tutorials and articles I can find, gathering all the best tutorials in one place! Ideally I will post atleast 3 times a week, a summary of what I’ve learned from hundreds of pages, repeating the theory and making it easy to return to the most important information.
If you’re in the same situation as me, searching the whole world wide web for tutorials, please join me! I also take help and links from others, if you have interesting tutorials or tips with good sources!
