I'm looking for a music student who understands VSTs and Music Production. Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Dear Anyone.

    I'm SORTA here under false pretences, but I genuinely am looking for help. I'm a disabled guy living in Brighton (and NOT at the Uni, that's where the 'false pretences' comes in) who loves writing music on his computer. But I'm NOT good at mixing it or at finding the sounds I'm looking for, mainly because there's a zillion packages out there yelling 'I'M BRILLIANT - BUY ME!!' and I dunno which ones to go for.

    So I'm hoping there's a music student, head filled with all the latest production knowledge, who'd be willing to give me a couple of lessons (at up to £25 a lesson I can pay) just to walk me through mixing a couple of pieces of music (so I can see what the heck I'm doing wrong!) and talk to me about where to get decent sounds for my style of music (chillout/New Age) and how to use them properly once I've got them. Basically, the more I learn, the more I'll be able to do, and I'm a good learner when someone has patience with me. (I'm willing to learn techno techniques/anything/ I just want to actually know what I'm doing for sure for once!) OK, so for the first couple of lessons the sounds themselves won't be the greatest but I'll be learning how to position/mix what I have. THEN when I get the better sounds, I'll hopefully find it easier to be trained in what to do with them. I've read tons of websites but they're all contradictory so I end up more confused than ever!

    I'm at the Old Steine. Is there anyone willing to give me a shot at learning the technical side of computer music? I'd never be able to afford Uni fees, but I really would love to learn. (Been trying to find someone to teach me for over a decade. Sad, isn't it!)

    Yours hopefully. Sorry this is in the forum under false pretences.
