Being an Independent developer isn’t always easy; most of the project are done in-house with very little access to resources.
Independent developers don’t always have life easy. When developing in-house, you need to gain access to a variety of resources. Everything helps. Today, I have stumbled on a MasterClass that might help many developers out there with music composition. Featuring the legendary electronic music composer and engineer deadmau5, the MasterClass will teach you a lot about how to properly compose music.
“Kids, DJs … anyone can compose music with just a computer,” he says. “My MasterClass is a no bullshit look into what it takes to make great music, and it’s not just buying millions of dollars worth of gear. I’m going to show my students how to play with sounds and mix melodies they can share with the world. I’ve never done something at this depth before.”
Of course, the initial target audience are new music composers and DJs. However, composing isn’t limited to them and I believe that to perfect their art, Indie developers can learn a lot from this class.
I have played a lot of games in my career and sometimes, I do fall on games that fail to deliver a good audio experience. When developing a game, music plays a massive role. When not mastered or incorporated properly, I can easily break the game. The last thing you want is to make a game that doesn’t sound good!
The MasterClass pre-enroll is now online and available for $90. By purchasing, or gifting the class, you will gain lifetime access to over 20 lessons in which deadmau5 teaches his experimental approach to making hit music. The lesson are video lessons. As a bonus, pre-enrolling gives you early access to an extra clip where you learn the techniques that took this legendary producer from a bedroom producer to a grand festival headliner.
The deadmau5 MasterClass is scheduled for launch during Winter 2016. For more information, or to enroll, feel free to visit the class’ page here.
