WHY THIS MATTERS

OK, if you want people to recognize your tracks, you need to design your own original sounds.

Sound design is how you build your own unique sonic universe that's not like anybody else, and it's important to do it.

It's how you develop your own identity as a producer so people will know it's YOU when they hear your music.
