In The Mix
Tell us about how you got into music?
Music has always been a passion of mine, I started producing music in 2015 and became fascinated by beat programming, arranging and mixing. I began recording cover songs and producing original music as a duo under the artist profile ‘Miavono’, before mixing and mastering for other artists and songwriters. Over the years I began sharing what I knew about music production and started the online community ‘In The Mix’ which now has over 500,000 subscribers on YouTube.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
FL Studio is at the core of everything I do. It was the first DAW that clicked with me instantly. The flexible routing options and ease of use is so important – it never gets in the way of my productions or recording! After the music I made in FL Studio gained more and more streams online, I realised there was a huge opportunity to teach others how to create stunning music with very little gear. FL Studio, a laptop and a microphone is all you need to get started.
Tell us about your production environment & toys?
Quality over quantity always! Over the years I’ve been lucky to kit out my studio with some A7X monitors, Beyerdynamic headphones (1990 pro are my personal favourite). I have some ‘go to’ mics like the Shure SM7B and of course I keep an Akai Fire Midi controller close by at all times.
