Tell us about yourself & how you got into music?
Hey, I’m Arcade. I am a YouTuber and a music producer from Slovakia. I got into music when I was very young. My father was really interested in music production so he would always install some new DAWs on our grandparent’s computer since we didn’t even have one at home back then. I was like 8 years old at this time. I remember using some silly DAWs that only had loops that you would put together and play, but I still had fun. It was like a year later when we got FL Studio. I still have some tracks that I’ve made on it back then but I had no idea what I was doing.
Today I am best known for making music production tutorials on YouTube.
Tell us abou t your plans for the future?
I usually don’t plan ahead too much. I like to do whatever I feel like doing at the moment. However I really like where my YouTube channel is going so I will definitely try to keep working on that. I’d also love to make some more music for movies and TV shows as I really love the connection between music and film. We will see what exactly the future holds but I don’t think I would ever stop producing music altogether. So that would be one thing that I definitely don’t plan on doing.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
I started using FL studio when I was like 9 years old. I played around with a few more DAWs since then but nothing stuck and I’d always come back to FL Studio. Nowadays I use FL Studio for all of my productions, it’s the only DAW I use and I don’t plan on changing that.
Tell us about your production environment and toys?
Although one day it would be nice to have a proper studio right now I still work in my bedroom which is just fine for me. I’ve been using M-Audio BX5 speakers for a few years now and they have been really good. When I work at night I use Audio-Technica M50 headphones. I also have M-Audio Oxygen 88 which is a big midi keyboard that you can connect to your computer and play any sounds with. I usually just use it as a “piano”. When producing music I like to use a small keyboard that’s on my desk to quickly test out the sounds. I use Akai LPK25. And that’s mostly it for my little “studio”. In the future I’d love to get some more hardware to play with but right now this works for me.
