A great website for learning everything to do with sound design. There are links to articles that involve sound design as well as various useful books on the market. It really is one big glossary of everything and anything to do with sound design. Highly recommended!
This website is heavily aimed towards DJs. It gives tips & tricks on various subjects (including how to open your own event night) as well as reviews on new hardware and software. Highly recommended.
Audiotuts+ is a blog for musicians, producers and audio junkies! They feature tutorials on the tools and techniques to record, produce, mix and master tracks. They also feature weekly articles for the music obsessive.
Jon Margulies is a producer, DJ and a guitarist. His aim has been to deliver 365 Ableton Live tips, one for each day of the year. They are small tips, but one a day has really helped develop my Ableton knowledge!
Mac Pro Video
It is an online education community featuring Tutorial-Videos & Training for popular Audio & Video Applications including Adobe CS, Logic Studio, Final Cut Studio, and more. The video really does keep a step-by-step guide to a software of your choice, HIGHLY recommended.
Ableton Live DJ
A really good Ableton Live forum can be found here. It is a lot smaller than the official Ableton forum, and in a way, this is why I love this one. It is a smaller based community so it is easier to get to know people as well as get your voice heard.
Logic Pro Help
A useful forum that has some very “go-to” people that have a massive wide range of info on Logic. Any problems that you have are worth posting on here. Most people will have an answer for you!
Want to know what your favourite artists are doing? Want to hear the new sounds of tomorrow? This could be the place for you… It is a good solid website that can be a great way to discover new artists and music of which you would have never heard of before. I do highly recommend it.
My #1 online music shop. Great navigation and profile settings as well as a MASSIVE catalogue of songs. But..unfortunately the various charts have been taken over with mainstream commercial remixed music which can make it hard to fine good tracks easily, which brings me onto…
This is a bit more of an underground online music store and can be useful at finding new quality tracks. I do hate the music player on the website (it plays the song in chunks) but is a good website overall. Another useful feature is that the songs can be cheaper than beatport, so if you find a £1.73 tracks on beatport, simply download it from here at a cheaper price.
