Frequently asked questions

What music software do I need?

We always recommend using Logic Pro X since it’s the industry standard. Although you can use other DAWs, there may be some vital missing functionality. Most of what we teach will be useful regardless, since we teach new ways of thinking — not just how to use software properly.

How good do my demos need to be before I send them off?

They need to be flawless. These days, record labels get so many demos sent in that anything less than outstanding will usually end up in the bin. Although the song itself doesn’t need to be the next chart-topper to catch their interest, the quality of the recording needs to be professional standard. Part of these courses is ensuring that your demos sound strong enough to avoid the bin!
