Hi, I’m Titchimoto. I’m a regular 28-year old dude, currently living in Portland, OR and I am an Aspiring Producer.
Yup, that’s right folks, I haven’t had a number one hit record, I don’t own a multi-million dollar studio and I’m not famous. However, that doesn’t matter, what I am is exactly like you, and because of that, I know exactly the problems and frustrations you are going through. I, just like you, have seen some successes, but I believe there is much more out there for us all. Becoming a successful Producer is not easy, let me tell you. It hasn’t even been easy and it won’t ever become easy. And that’s a good thing. Here at The Aspiring Producer, however, it is my goal to help provide you with resources, tutorials, advice and a community where we can provide the support system to help people achieve their goals of becoming a successful music producer.
MY STORY SO FAR
I have been producing for approximately 10+ years now. I was one of those 16-year-old kids using a downloaded (whoops, sorry!) version of Reason 1.0, sitting in his bedroom, clicking away creating drum patterns in ReDrum, or chopping up Samples in NN-XT. And I loved it. It was my version of having fun as a kid, and my escape from the world, which it still is to this day.
Since then, I have progressed (to Logic, btw!) and seen many things within the music business. I have had productions played on BBC Radio 1 (in the UK), featured on Spotify, Beatport, Channel AKA, racked up several hundred thousand views on YouTube, and submitted tracks to some of the biggest names in the business.
SO WHY NOW?
I want to use this blog as a platform to help other Aspiring Producers, help them to avoid some of the pitfalls I have fallen into along the way (who better to teach the right way than those who have tried the wrong way?) help provide advice, tutorials and resources to help all producers reach their full potential. I know some of you have so much to give and just need to figure out a way round the roadblocks that the music industry places in front of you.
If you are already a producer then please stick around, soak up some advice and sounds to help improve your music, hopefully some of my lessons – both successes and failures – can help inspire you to reach your goals.
Or, if you are new to the world of music production, and looking for a place to get started, then this is the perfect opportunity. What better place to learn all about it than from a community who are already doing it? We have plenty of tutorials and sound kits for all levels, so don’t be afraid to get started.
I am here for everyone, to make mistakes so you don’t have to.
Please feel free to subscribe to my mailing list and get up-to-date production advice, tips, tutorials and sound kits. I’ll also throw in a copy of our sound kit, Aspire Piano’s Vol. I for FREE!
