Music production.

In what’s quite possibly the most intricate, painstaking, and rewarding process known to man – a single human can now command the sounds of the universe with a click of a button.

Whether you want to create a glistening pop tune (nope) or an in-your-face club banger (that’s more like it) that will have the world’s dance floors bristling with the edge that only those who have felt it can describe – it’s all possible – and it’s all ready for the taking.

Whereas one used to have hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gear and a lifetime of knowledge to record a timeless classic, today’s production software can put the power of creation at your fingertips.
