DAW Consulting

Whether it’s Propellerhead Reason, Ableton Live, Studio One or the new DAW on the block, I can help you get the most out of your setup.

Since the early 90s, I’ve been using a variety of DAWs to record my own music, and eventually to run a project studio to record others. You can read all about my DAW background here.

These days, I do most of my work in Ableton Live, and Reason. I’ve been using Propellerhead Reason since version 4.0, which was released in 2001. I’ve been an Ableton Live user since 2010.

Reason is my go-to for easy song creation and capturing creative ideas, while Ableton integrates well with my live rig and has also been a great creative tool.

When it comes down to it, the software doesn’t really matter. What matters is how you use it.

I’m offering my 20+ years of practical experience up for anyone who needs help. My goal is to save you time and money, and provide insight that you just can’t get from YouTube videos.

Maybe you are trying to sequence with hardware, or perform some tricky editing. Maybe you are looking for creative uses of the devices within your DAW. Whatever the case, I am sure I can help you and we can both have fun doing it.

Note: This gig is for educational services – not mixing. In order to mix your project directly from the project file, I would need to have the same exact version of the DAW that you use (or later), and I’d need to have all of the same third party devices and plugins. That’s a lot of variables. If you need mixing from stems (regardless of DAW), see my other services.

How it works:

Schedule a 30 min FREE Zoom consult to discuss your needs.

Then I will come up with a proposal to:

Diagnose and prioritize current issues
Suggest best practices
Develop templates
Document setup, create checklists
Identify places for improvement
Provide resources for extended learning
