How do some producers make pro-level drum and bass in less than a year of producing?

It’s not that they have a musical background.

It’s not that they have fancy production equipment.

And it’s definitely not because they’ve already accumulated 10,000 hours of practice.

Actually, it’s the complete opposite

As a new producer you think of your progress like this:

But in reality it's something like this:

You get a little bit of progress in the start.

This could be because you’ve seen a bunch of YouTube tutorials…

Or you’re buying new plugins and sample packs…

But shortly after, you plateau.

This is because you’re not translating the information into knowledge that will take you to the next level.

The solution?
Conscious Learning

Start by taking action with producing.

When you hit a roadblock, take the time to learn about that problem and solve it.

Repeat this process over again and your progress will end up looking like this:

Taking the time to learn new concepts and develop a skill set WHILE applying it to your music is what makes the difference. 

This way you will position yourself into a positive feedback loop of working smarter not harder.

Now the problem arises...

You’ve tried to browse the web in search of well-structured and comprehensive educational material only to find yourself back on YouTube.

While YouTube can be helpful, there is one big risk you’re taking: Bad education can waste your time and set you back months or even years.

On the other hand, the right education can fast-track the process and get you creating music that you’re proud of.

Have any questions?

If we haven’t answered your question, email support@dnbacademy.eu

The courses in DNB Foundations are mostly recorded in Ableton and FL Studio.

You might be wondering whether this course is worth it for you if you’re using a different DAW.

The simple answer is…

Yes. 

All of the techniques and knowledge taught in this program are relevant to all DAWs. Some techniques and tools may look slightly different, and there may be parts where you need to find a workaround in your DAW. But as a whole, you’ll be able to apply what’s being taught and develop your production skills.

Worst case scenario? It doesn’t work for you. You find it too hard to follow along in a different DAW. If that’s the case, just send us an email and we’ll refund you in full. 

No it doesn’t.

You can’t run out of time  with this program as it’s self-paced.

You can go through it in a matter of weeks if you’re extremely diligent and have a lot of time, or you can go through it at a slower pace and take it all in.

Whether it takes weeks, months, or even years—it doesn’t matter.

You’ll always have access to the course material.

Yes, this is exactly the program for you! It’s deliberately created in a way to help complete beginners master the fundamentals of drum and bass production and get going quickly. If you’re brand new, this will be a game changer for you.

Are you consistently finishing music that you’re proud of? Do you feel like you have a solid grasp of the fundamentals of music production?

If so, then it’s probably not for you. But if you’ve been producing for a while but feel like you never really got a good start then this program will help you.

As soon as you make your payment, you’ll be instantly enrolled in the course platform and you can start the course straight away.
