Reviewing 2023 & moving into a strong 2024
Thank you all for another great year, Your attention & support mean everything.
Without you, I am just a guy shouting at clouds. I much prefer my work helping
aspiring producers to make some of their best work.
My focus for 2023 was improving user experience for MusicSoftwareTraining.com
& Producer’s Playground/Transformation Station members. I made navigation
much easier & fixed a number of little bugs, so everything works more seamlessly.
I also focused on my Music Habits Podcasts & have posted quite a few. As of
writing this I just released my 62nd podcast. My hope is that they fill you
with some of the wisdom I’ve gained over decades of music making & keep
you inspired to face your creative challenges & take action.
There are now audio versions of both my bestselling books, “The Mental Game
of Electronic Music Production” and “The Process for Electronic Music Production“.
If you don’t currently have Audible, you can get one of the books for free with a
30 day trial & keep it regardless of if you stick with Audible.
Continued focus on your transformation
Although I still keep fully up to date on Ableton & share plenty of tips, my goal
is always to help you focus on what matters, things that will make a true difference,
instead of filling your head with more and more “information”.
You know what I always say, “information rarely leads to transformation”. I prefer
to give you actionable advice that will actually push your music forward. This is
a theme that is much less popular from production coaches & most youtube
Although it can be fun to learn cool tricks be entertained while learning, most
of this won’t have an immediate use for your unique style of music. We have
all gone down rabbit holes learning complex tricks for a style of music we
will never make.
It’s important to know the difference between killing time with production
entertainment, and working on the fundamentals that matter in a way that
meets you exactly where you are at.
To help with this further, I’ve categorized my best YouTube content into
Playlists. You now have over 10 years of my content organized for your
current needs. Here are your links to bookmark:
My focus for 2024
For 2024, I plan to continue with most of the above, while also making
several new Masterclasses and updating ones I want to improve upon.
I’ll also be making easy to follow walkthroughs for Ableton 12 and diving
into some of the new effects & instruments, so you will be fully up to date.
Ableton Master Template Updates
For my Master Template enthusiasts, expect more tools to be added
throughout 2024. I’ll be improving on the best set of sounds, tools &
templates out there. Those who already have it will of course get these
updates for free.

2024 Relaunch of the “Create an EP in 30 Days” Master Course
For those of you who are really serious about taking your music to the next
level, I’ll be relaunching my “Create an EP in 30 Days” Master Course.
It’ll be the 1st time I’ve done a public launch since Covid hit, with the
exception of doing a private launch for former EP30 students.
It the most complete personalized training to take an aspiring producer of any
electronic music style, to finishing release quality music consistently.
I’ll be adding even more transformational content, to keep you on the
cutting edge, without getting lost of decision fatigue.
It doesn’t matter what level you are at. I’ve helped intermediate producers
massively boost their productivity level & quality of music, as well as
total beginners who have never opened a DAW.
I devote personal mentoring to each and every student, so I can only
take on 15 students per launch.
If this is of interest, you can sign up for the waitlist here for more details.
1 on 1 Coaching
For those who have a specific challenge they would like 1 on 1 help
with, or if you are looking for a Deep Song Review on how to take a
particular song to release level quality, I’ll also be taking on a limited
number of Private Coaching students.
Whether you are just looking for 1 session, or several weekly sessions,
I am happy to discuss that possibility to see if we are a good fit. If you
would like to schedule a free call with me, just answer a few questions & I’ll
get you scheduled in as soon as possible.
What would you like to see?
Lastly, but probably most importantly, if you have specific content you would
like to see from me in 2024, or an improvement on something on my site,
reply to this email & I’ll add it to my “to do” list.
I hope you all reach higher heights in 2024. Happy music making!
