Samplecraze have announced the launch of a new web site with hundreds of new music production tutorial videos created by owner/founder Eddie Bazil.
Eddie has years of experience in commercial music production — as programmer to DJ Shadow, Pet Shop Boys and Spandau Ballet, as well as being a remixer and a sound designer for Native instruments and Propellerheads — and has already created over 130 new videos on a huge range of subjects. These cover practical production skills, creative techniques and theory and more are being added every week. Samplecraze will also endeavour to create new focused tutorials on subjects you’d like to see added, so get your requests in!
Creating a Samplecraze account is free, you can pick and choose the content you want to view. There are some free videos to give you a taste of their style, but after that customers will pay a modest one-off fee for each tutorial, and have access to it for as long as they choose to keep their Samplecraze account. Coming as a relief for some, there are no monthly subscriptions if you only want to dip in from time to time, and you don’t have to pay for a whole course of beginner to advanced videos when you only need specific tutorials.
So, you can grab a tutorial about managing the low end of a mix, then add one on beat construction; or you can build a course from videos about compression and others on pre-mastering prep work. Choose whatever you want — and if in doubt, Samplecraze will be on hand to help suggest a sequence of tutorials that should meet your needs.
And you can still find Samplecraze's comprehensive suite of music production eBooks on the site too — these follow the same Samplecraze ethos of accessible, affordable, high-quality education, and they make a great companion to the videos, too.
