Want to produce your own music? Develop your DJ skills? Learn about specific software? Beginners and experts alike can always do with a bit of extra knowledge here and there, but physical courses can cost a fortune. Not any more, Sonic Academy has launched the ultimate music production video tutorial resource, and it’s being delivered direct to your PC from just £3.49 per tutorial at www.sonicacademy.com.
Manuals don’t talk you through how to get the most out of your equipment or software, nor do they physically show you what to do. Enter SonicAcademy.com, the online video training academy with an ethos of high production values, professional presenters and most importantly, knowledge. The highly interactive site enables tutorials to be downloaded in bite size modules to answer a specific question or problem area, or as a whole course taking you through step-by-step on screen how to maximise the use of your software or hardware.
Sonic Academy was launched as a physical DJ and music production training Academy by musician, former Divine Comedy band member and DJ Kevin Traynor and DJ / producer Phil Johnston in 2003. Based in Belfast the Academy runs accredited training programmes and has attracted music production enthusiasts across the board, from complete beginners through to professional DJs and producers including Agnelli & Nelson and Fergie (formally of Radio 1). The Sonic team, comprising experienced DJs, producers and trainers are now transferring their skill set online, enabling the frustrated and skill-hungry perfectionists world-wide to access music production training according to their individual needs.
SonicAcademy.com contains beginners’ through to ultra-advanced video tutorials on leading software packages, including Ableton, Cubase, and Reason (for computer and live music production), and hardware from mixers, turntables and DJ CD players to the more challenging and unusual equipment and gadgets on the market. And giving that extra stamp of approval the site is endorsed by the industry’s leading quality manufacturers and key players, from M-Audio and Ableton to Steinberg, Native Instruments, Vestax and Allen & Heath.
“There’s a massive need for something like SonicAcademy.com,” says Sonic Founder Kevin Traynor. “DJing is a part of a growing industry of music technology. There’s a huge cross-over now and technology is moving so fast that the benefits of tapping into an online tutorial resource anytime and according to your individual requirement is going to be immense. SonicAcademy.com is an extremely interactive educational resource offering music creators the whole package - a one stop shop at the highest level.”
