Come here to learn how to make a song that people want to hear. Not to learn tips and tricks unfiltered from the internet, but to cultivate the mind of a record producer.
My music production is 10x better after attending Crē•8. I have a process now. I can develop my ideas clearly and get consistent, professional results.
“I still have the same tastes as when I started, but my approach to creating and mixing a song — I’ve definitely gone up a level.”
“The quantity and quality of what I learned is amazing…like getting a “scientific approach” to frequencies, timbres and rhythms that lets you bend, add or subtract them to your taste.”
“Activ•8 put all the pieces together into a systematic step-by-step approach that I could tailor to my specific goals. I only wish I had been able to take this course years ago.”
“Initi•8 shed light on things that were mental roadblocks in the past. Having the structure of hit songs laid out piece-by-piece is what I needed to understand other songs, as well as my own productions.”
“Within the first few classes, I realized I’d been making things monumentally harder on myself by not seeking the guidance of an experienced practitioner of this craft. Now I can do things with confidence, knowing I’m doing it right. I can’t put a price on that.”
“I can now immediately analyze and pinpoint musical arrangement, topline and why the song did or didn’t achieve the success the artist/producer wanted.”
“After the first course, it was just mind blowing. This is everything that you essentially need to know to be able to progress and make record breaking songs.”
