Music production is a process. Being in the studio and producing tracks, is a magical moment. Although music production has become increasingly accessible in recent years, a well produced track requires engineers and producers who possess the skills, experience, and musical mind. Let’s not forget that being prepared for studio sessions is also essential.


Join the music production panel and learn more about key concepts and tips in music production, and how you can make the most out of your studio sessions.

Knowing your rights means knowing when you’re owed money for your music.

Music rights are about ensuring that you receive royalties for owning a song that is used or played by another entity. It certainly can seem messy, so let us demystify some of it.
