Best music production websites for music producers

These music production websites all have something in common – great content. I’ve selected websites that help us make better music, provide free production education, or provide free content to help us make music. Let’s get stuck in … πŸ™‚

Ableton

ableton.com/en/blog

Ableton can do no wrong in my eyes – I’m a little fanatical πŸ™‚ Their blog is a great read too.

The blog features not just Ableton-centric content but also interviews and discussions with electronic music artists. A lot of these interviews cover innovative approaches to making music and can be inspiring to the creative process of making music. Most companies create blogs to help sell their products, whilst this blog does do that, there’s lots of content that’s of interest to music producers.
