I'm Eyal Levi, and here's my proof: https://twitter.com/TheRealEyalLevi/status/378146728870154240
I'm the son of a pretty famous classical symphony conductor -- but I got my own break in the business by handing out 28,000 free CDs and maxing out all of my credit cards on buying some entry-level music gear. Now I am a partner at Audiohammer Studios - http://audiohammerstudios.com - where we work with bands like August Burns Red and The Black Dahlia Murder.
I can go into a lot more detail, though and would like to help demystify the music industry. It's a tough business, and I'll share the good, the bad and the ugly to help you get started in music.
I'm here to answer all of your questions, so... go ahead... AMA.
Thanks for the great questions everyone, will keep on answering them.
Also, I'm teaching a one-day course on Toontrack's EZ Drummer software on 9/25, which will stream free via creativeLIVE. They've created a special code for the Reddit community to take 20% off any ONE course in their back catalog of creative courses.
Enter coupon code on the checkout page after adding the course to your shopping cart. This is a single use code.
Wow! I just want to thank everyone who showed up and participated! You guys have been great. This has been going on for almost 3:30 and my hands are falling off haha. I'm going to take a breather. Possibly for the night.
However, when my brain re-activates I will try to answer any new or remaining questions. Feel free to keep them coming.
In the meantime check out my studio porn page - http://instagram.com/unstoppablekillingmachine#
Also, I maintain a daily recording/music Q&A here - http://eyallevi.tumblr.com/
Ok. This time for real. I'm out for the night. Need to get some sleep. But feel free to keep the questions coming. I will be back during the day of Sept 13 and if the questions don't stop I'll go into the evening of Sept 13.
So it's up to you guys. I will go as long as you guys want to!
Anyhow, you've been great! Thanks for tuning in! And will continue this after I get some sleep.
Hello everyone! I'm back for a little bit answering some more questions
