    Thanks Jonathan for being so generous with your info. If I could put in a request, I’d LOVE to see you do an article/walkthrough on building a production music template. Thanks again!

      You’re welcome Stephen. Thanks for your request, it’s noted!

    Thanks for the tips, I would like to ask if you are creating your own synths and sound effects or you are using it and modifying from bought libraries. Thank you 🙂

      You’re welcome Martin. A combination of both! When time is tight, I’ll usually reach for synth presets that are close to what I need, then edit them. If I have some time to spare, I’ll fiddle around and create my own.
