Music by: @dcuttermusic / http://www.davidcuttermusic.com
Can I monetize my video that contains your music?
Yup! You spend a lot of time and effort creating your videos, you should get paid for it!
Can I use your music in my Cinematic Blockbuster SMASH HIT Film?!
Hey Spielberg, send me an EMAIL.
David Cutter has been around music from an early age, he started out when he got hold of a drum machine and was soon hooked with the sounds he could get out of it, moving on from the drum machine he became a drummer for various bands, gigging in and around London and then later on moved back into music production, from that point he has focussed and developed his own style into what you hear today.
His style, although eclectic, is mostly a mix of chilled-out breaks, hyped up hip-hop and pure catchy summer vibes.
He also really likes Donuts, which have been hugely important in his musical career, Donuts.
Can I use your music on Youtube?
Yes you can! Check out the details HERE.
WILL I GET A COPYRIGHT NOTICE FROM YOUTUBE?
No. When using my music for your vlogs etc, this should never happen, however, sometimes Youtube can make a mistake, so in the very rare chance that this does happen to you, contact me immediately with details of the notice so that I can look into what is going on and get Youtube to remove the notice.
Can you play any instruments?
Originally, I started out as a Drummer in a Funk band, I still play from time to time but I got tired of lugging a Drum Kit around
and turned to Music Production instead. I can also play a little Piano, Guitar and usually anything that I can get my hands on.
Do you do anything else?
In between eating and sleeping, I pretty much spend most
of my time writing music, its the one thing that I have always
had a serious passion for and apart from chilling on a beach somewhere, I can't think of much else I'd choose to do, saying that, I do also play around with Photography, Graphic Design
and Videography, I'd like to spend more time creating videos,
but all roads end up leading back to writing music.
I want to make music, what should I do?
I love my Maschine and think it is a great starting point for anyone wanting to get into making music, it's really simple to pick up, user friendly and I guarantee you will make your first loop in an afternoon.
You should also listen to a lot of music in a lot of styles, inspiration can come from anywhere and you can learn a lot by listening to anything, even how not to do something! If you are a little deeper into music production then my advice is to be self critical, listen carefully to your own music and learn from your mistakes.
There are plenty of music production/mixing tutorials (good and bad) on Youtube, watch them all, learn everything about Compression and EQ, then go back and learn about Compression and EQ again, did I mention Compression and EQ?
Above all else, just create music with the tools you have to hand, if you only have a tin bucket, a guitar with 2 strings and a croaky voice, use them!
HOW DO YOU create your music?
My setup is intentionally simple, I find trying to get the best out of what you have makes you work harder to progress.
I mainly use Maschine and Logic Pro, I love Maschine for it's ease of turning an idea into creation so quickly, I can load it up, get a few sounds and start to turn that annoying tune that I have buzzing around in my head into reality.
WHAT PLUG-INS DO YOU USE?
HOW dID you GET ON SPOTIFY/ITUNES?
I use a digital distributor called Distrokid, you pay a yearly fee and upload your releases to them, then they do all the hard work of getting them in the stores! If you want to release your own music, you should definitely check them out!
WHAT GENRE IS YOUR MUSIC?
Chillhop/Headbob?! I have no idea, let me know...
