We love the channel Once Upon A Synth and especially love this series wheee he makes a song using just one synth. Now in this day and age we tend to feel that we really need lots of gear and lots of plugins in order to make a record. Truth is that you can use just one synth or one plugin and create all the sounds you need. This video revolves around an analogue synth which is a lot more remarkable. So make your song with what you have already. Also subscribe to his channel as well.
For many years I ignored gimbals as I really had no use for them, having owned a DSLR camera and using the iPad Pro as an extra camera (with its large screen of course). That all changed at Christmas when I bought the Oppo Reno 5g phone and then on Valentine’s Day went and had a look at a gimbal and was blown away by the DJI Mobile 3. This thing is amazing and will make our smartphone film making and music videos look like the real deal. Click on the link and check it out. It is low cost and offers tremendous value for money.

Counting Stars is a beautiful sounding Retrowave song by NINA.
NINA is a German Synthpop/Synthwave singer-songwriter now based in London. A classically trained singer, NINA has been described as Lana Del Rey meets Robyn.
For those of you who don’t know, Retrowave is a modern revival of 80s synth pop wonderfulness in all its glory including, bizarrely, some of its fashion. What I would say is that when you get a decent song in this genre, it sounds incredible.
Counting Stars is taken from the album Sleepwalking which you can pre-order from the link below
A must read for anyone interested in music production. In other words budding artists and producers.

In this book you will learn about how the hits were made from an engineering and production angle and also some fascinating insight into some of the artists who SAW produced. Preview the book now.
It’s been 4 years since this song was released but it still sounds as fresh as ever. Key To Your Heart is bouncy, bubbly and fun and is a quirky pop record that fuses guitars, synths and harmonies, underpinned by a two-step groove. It has elements of music spanning decades from the 1960s guitar sound (courtesy of Guitar Rig 4), 80s Oberheim synth sounds and a 1950s sounding acoustic bass.
Key To Your Heart is out now. Get your copy from iTunes.
