Are you struggling with creating a career in this business? Whether it be as a Songwriter, an Engineer, a Producer, a Mixer or even as a Mastering Engineer.
The most common thing to do when you feel like you’re NOT where you want to be is to blame others or blame the world for your situation. That the system isn’t fair and that YOU can’t get a fair shot.
As many of you already know, I am, at my core… a drummer. Yes. We all know that a drummer is the punchline to a joke about who you see hanging out with other “musicians”. But let’s take this one step further. In the future. With the evolution of music. Do we see a place for drummers anymore?

Budgets were dropping, and when the Producer was no longer being paid as much as before, they had to find a way to cut corners.
Hey guys. In this episode I’d like to introduce you to the great Eli Krantzberg. Best known as one of the most prolific authors we have over at Groove3.com.
The big trend these days has been to “rent” software. Photoshop switched to a subscription model, along with Pro Tools and many plugin companies are now offering the same way of utilizing their products.
Many years ago, before programs like Pro Tools added Elastic Audio or REAPER added Stretch Markers, people like me had to edit drums the “slice editing” way. Which meant cutting the audio (splitting) on the transient points and then quantizing all of those little pieces of audio to the grid.
