Designed as an introductory technical skills course, Technical Fundamentals for Producers focuses on a fundamental understanding of computers, operating systems and the essential music production software. Inefficient use of technology introduces downtime and frustration, which can stifle creativity. Successful music producers know how to navigate technology with ease, ensuring their creativity is fostered.

Four Hours Theory and Hands-On Practice
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.”
