good to be true? Still unsure? See the most commonly asked questions
Below are real questions
asked by real visitors
to this site and buyers of the ebook.
Do I have to view
everything online or do I have to print it all off? Also why is it in
Adobe PDF, I haven't used that before?
would really save everything off onto your hardrive and work on them
from there. Some people find it easier to print off and
read when they
want. Others prefer to read "on the screen". Luckily you
have to print everything at the same time. Once downloaded,
Adobe's PDF Reader you can state which pages you would like to print.
I use PDF because it is transportable through different
platforms (Windows, Mac users etc). However, at the very start of the
ebook I go into detail on how to navigate through the ebook, especially
using bookmarks which jump you through to any chapter you want, just by
clicking on the link.
You will also
receive a link to go to the video tutorials which are
complimentary to the ebook, so printing things off is a
good idea as
you can read and watch at the same time if you wish.
It all sounds too good to be true, but
how can everyone be a top success?
does sound too good I agree and I have had a problem with that, trying
to state to people "this
is what you can achieve, this is what you can
do". The two songs that that I created as Superduel
were created by me using the techniques that are in the ebook, nothing
else. All the tunes that your hear in the webvideo are
from the Tracker
element without any softsynths. I created my tracks because no-one
believed that it could be done with a "tracker", so I tried to prove
them wrong :)
The problem comes in that there are many people out there already
producing music, spending out alot of money to do so, so any way to
reduce that cost is a bonus- whether that be reducing
marketing costs etc. I can show you how to do it for the most reduced
It is up to you to become a success eventually though. I can show you
how to do it, but if you do not go ahead and invest the
then you won't achieve any success. For example there are thousands of
ebooks out there about marketing, how to be a millionaire in a week
etc. Out of the thousands that download these ebooks, none if only 1
will ever be a millionaire. The tips and the guidance are there but it
is actually about doing it. You may have some ups and you may have some
lows, no one is going to say other wise, but you should be saying "I am
going to do this".
I have kept in contact with most of the ebook buyers. Some are starting
to produce music
at the moment- or they have integrated my work into their own set-ups- complimenting their
I haven't seen any dates for all
this...so does that mean the techniques are getting old?
like your questions :) I
did everything in 2006, and wrote about it
while I was actually doing it.
The thing is the Internet is an ever changing playing field, you have
some good things appear- if they are really good they stay around (rss,
feeds etc), if they are not up to scratch then they fall by the
way-side. Fads come and fads go, however the Internet has some
principles that stay where they are...always.
For example, people thought that when RSS came out email
die. It hasn't and it won't do for some time. So in the ebook I have
covered the main principles that you will need to get your music heard.
I have also covered some aspects that you can dabble with. But I will
not give you something that I haven't tried myself or that I know is
not going to work, it is a waste of time for everyone- so
when you see
"1000 ways to promote your site" some will be good some will be bad, I
don't want the bad ones included anywhere.
The ebook will in time become old, it is only right that will happen,
then it will get updated. But the things in there that do work, will
still work. It is only if you put in the time and the effort. For
example, gigs, they are a tried and trusted way to promote you and your
work, full proof. However some people do not want to do that, that is
unfortunate, because it is a great way of promotion and I doubt that it
will fade away any time soon.
have no experience so how what can I do and how much can I make?
What I do know is that you have every chance as everyone else on the
Internet. Some will make it, some will not, that is just how it goes.
But you have got an unfair advantage in that your costs will be 90%
less than anyone elses. The Internet makes going it alone
hence it makes it so
much more accessable to everyone.
The worse that could happen is that you don't make any money directly
from your songs- however if
you sort out a few things and apply some techniques to your site then
you should make some cash
even if it is to pay the hosting fees (I show
you how to do all of that).
The best that
can happen? You get a record contract or you do
everything solo and make a bit of cash. The interviewed artists in the
ebook have done it. They have got cash, record contract, CDs
so it can be done.
But again it comes down to effort. What you put in is what you will get
out. Some of the people who make money on the radio stations put in a
huge amount of time (7 hrs/ day +) but they get alot of money from
doing so- so its their job now- and they are enjoying
every little bit
The people in the ebook that have done something for themselves have
got the success but they put in alot of time and effort.
But ultimately low music
experience doesn't really matter initially. I
have proved that. With some sequencers you do need soo much time. With
my methods you don't. I don't assume that you know a thing. We start
from the basics and work up. You have to start somewhere, everyone has
have never done this before, so how do I actually get all the
you need to do is click on the "click

you have done that you will go to a highly secure server where you
input your details. Make
sure that this is fully complete with no
After that you will be sent to an acknowledgement screen where you
input your email address. Make
sure that you read the screen fully as
it contains passwords to the internet videos. You
will then be
sent an email with downloading details for the ebook and bonuses.
like the ebook and I want to download it, but what if I get stuck or if
I can not download anything. Sorry, but I have been burnt before?
apologise. On the acknowledgement screen (FAQ 5) there is a direct
email address to me regarding the products. If you have
don't hesitate to contact. If you forget to download, miss the page,
your computer crashes, your family pull out the power supply- you can
easily get the download links by emailing me your name and receipt
need video to visualise what I do, but I don't have to
download those as well do I?
don't have to if you don't want to. All

are other music makers out there, more expensive ones. Why then should
I get your ebook when it is so cheap especially with all the added
the music packages out there are just that, music making packages. Alot
are expensive for what they are, and I don't believe that
they are beginner orientated at all.
Most assume that you have some knowledge. Or they show you
how to make music in such a basic way your creativity is very limited. Or you need to keep
on adding various "expansion sounds"- increasing the cost of the
original program. So the $35-$150 package might seem good at the time
but you will need to work upto a better package/ additional
extras later...spending much more money.
I assume that
you know nothing, so we can build upon that. I then show
you how to market your tunes and yourself, and how to make a residual income with
what you enjoy- all built into the same 1 package.
Remember, music making is such a small aspect of the whole bigger
picture. You need to get your tunes "out there". How will you make it if no one
knows that you are there? Please note- posting on MySpace
just doesn't cut it anymore (as the bonus ebook shows you).
The Beginners Guide
is not just a music making ebook,
it is the whole package- a full guide in getting your own
music out there and noticed. For the beginner in every aspect.
It is cheap because when at the beginning I was short of money most
packages were out of my price range. I assume that there is alot of
people out there that are like me at that stage. Sure I could raise the
price, but that makes music making out of reach for people, it shouldn't be exclusive.
Everyone who wants to do it, can now do it- that was my ultimate goal.
I think I have succeeded.
I like House music. Does the ebook show how to do other styles of music like House?
has been designed to
make any sort of electronic music. Most electronic genres
share the same basic design so creating one type and moving onto the
next is quite simple.
The ebook shows you how, with examples. If you want to see more
examples of various styles played with similar principles check out this
