Hey, I'm Mike (aka Captain) and I've been DJing, promoting, and producing electronic music for over 20 years now. I used to be a hobbyist, working on music in what little spare time I had. I rarely finished any songs, my toolset was in constant flux, and I often didn't even get to a complete song idea.
It wasn't until I was lucky enough to join the ranks of Ill Gate's Class of 808 that I realized one of the biggest things holding me back.
Having the right template.
Working with chart topping artists from the Producer Dojo, along with all the coursework and instruction from the Class of 808 showed me just how important the right tools and workflow can be.
Being able to sit down and just start writing without setup is crucial to finishing song ideas. Being able to take that idea and quickly mix it down is just as important.
So, I'm sharing my secret sauce: My templates, the ones that have taken years of Ableton knowledge, thousands in education, and countless studio hours. This is what I see every day when I open Ableton (sans 3rd party sample libraries). This allows me to hit the ground running, then finish off with ease.
I'm positive these templates can help maximize your production time, and help you hone in your perfect template as well. I'm so positive, I'll give you 100% back if you're not convinced.
