As we begin our journey into 2015, I wanted to take a moment to look back into the past year and make notes of some of my personal highlights.
Workflow things, books, plugins, tools, music, websites, general wellbeing and productivity… This is a very personal list and some of the stuff I’ll be mentioning doesn’t sound like anything to do with music production. Never the less it all has made a difference for my work.

I love Ableton Live. It taps into your imagination. There’s so much you can do with Ableton it never ceases to amaze me.
I like to learn and immerse myself with new ideas by watching YouTube videos. For this post I’ve put together a few great Ableton tutorial videos as examples of what is possible when great software design meets creative individuals. Let’s have a look.
Last week I asked my email subscribers what kind of content would they like to see here in the future.

One of the most common requests I received was to hear more about which plugins, sample packs, books, websites, tools and so on I like to use in my craft.
To answer your call, I have created a new page that lists the things that I use and love the most. I have also included comments for each resource on why I like it/how I am using it.
I’ll be adding more too as time goes by, so you may want to bookmark the page and visit every now and then.
Making music should feel good, right?
