Hello all! As mentioned in my last post, I’ve got a lot on my plate at the moment. As it’s been a whole month since that post I thought I better get on and write another update. I’ve decided to keep the blogs to stuff about myself and my own musical journey, whilst publishing the studio and production guide type stuff separately as articles. So here is the latest on what I’m up to… Continue reading
Hello fellow DIY Musos and thanks for checking out this new blog post. It’s been a while, I know… terribly sorry and all that but I do have some excuses… Continue reading
It came so quickly I nearly missed it but this website is now just over a year old. The official ‘birthday’ would have been the 25th of April, last week. So it’s only right that we should have a little nostalgic retrospective of DIY Music’s first year of existence. It will involve lots of numbers… Continue reading
Hello, you! Thanks for clicking whatever you clicked to bring you to the fourteenth DIY Music Blog post. I really do appreciate you being here and I genuinely hope that you find the stuff I’m writing about interesting or valuable in some way…
Today I’m going to write about something that I’m afraid of, for some reason, and how I’m going to attempt to overcome that fear. Maybe you can relate and maybe this post will help you overcome something too. Continue reading
A new blog post so soon?! Well, yes… and there’s a reason for this.
I’ve suffered from a pretty major setback in the DIY Music home studio recently and haven’t been able to get a lot of stuff done that I’d hoped to. However, I’m going to find the silver lining around this and also share some valuable lessons I’ve learned so that you can be prepared for any similar fate that may befall you. Continue reading
Hey there guys and gals, thanks for clicking through to the latest DIY Music blog. It’s been way over a month since the last one, in which I wrote about some of my plans for 2016. One reason for the long gap is because I’ve been getting on with working on those targets, among other things… But anyway, here’s an overdue blog post! I’m gonna talk about how I’m hoping to boost my mixing skills and how you can boost yours.
So here we are in 2016. I’ve had a little break for Christmas and New Year (from work and the website, but not from music). Now I’m thinking about all the things I want to get done in the year ahead. What about you?
It seems it’s DIY Music blog o’clock once more. Yes. Here we go. Today I’m writing about reaching ‘peak plug-in’, a term I made up recently, interviewing people who know much more about stuff than I do, the holiday season, and a bunch of other things. So please, do read on if that interests you… Continue reading
Hey there guys and gals! Here’s the ninth (not tenth as originally thought!) DIY Music Blog. I’m sticking with the new format of thought of the day / my news / other news again as I think I can fine tune that into a decent blog style. Let me know if you agree or not.
Once again, there’s been plenty going on since I last wrote, including new (old) projects and interesting turns of events. And something I’ve been thinking about a lot… Continue reading
Hello! Yes, it’s time for a brand new DIY Music blog. This is the part of the site where I write about what I’ve come across recently in my musical journey and maybe talk about about my thoughts.
As I’m still working out the best way to do this I’m going to try a new format. I’ll start with ‘thought of the day’ style section, followed by an update on what I’ve been up to and I’ll finish with news from the rest of the world. So today I’ll have a little ramble about our beginnings and where-we-are-goings, update you on my own progress, including Slate Digital plugs, new articles and new tunes, and have a look at what’s new in the audio world. So here goes.
