1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I've been working with computers and music from probably around five or six, when my parents first got an Atari with Cubase 2.0! Been hooked ever since.

2. What training have you had?

Mostly it comes from my parents. They're both songwriters and producers, so I grew up watching them and learning in their studio. More recently, just self-taught really.

3. When did you get into recording?

I guess I first started taking it seriously when I was around 15 or 16, which is when it became a bit more feasible to actually record at home and go beyond GM. That's when I started picking up other instruments aside from keyboard, guitar, bass, drums.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've just started working with the guys over at Red Bull Media House and am on my second album with them now! Some of my sound design work has found its way to the studios over at the likes of Blizzard, and I've done a great deal of custom composition and production music for library music companies both here in the UK and in the Unites States.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I just love helping people out I guess! Through my personal music projects I've connected with thousands of fans from across the world, and most of them are aspiring producers and musicians themselves. So it's nice to be part of a wider community of creative people and help them along the way, as others helped me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Very rich and comprehensive. Will need to view multiple times. Wish Steinberg provided a fraction of the "practical application" that you demonstrated, in thier documentation. Very Creative and inspiring. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good course !!! This is a very musical course. I like the examples Paul Ortiz uses to explain every detail of the sampler track. This guy is both: a good teacher and a good musician. Better than all I saw on Youtube!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great intro to an exciting new Cubase feature Although quite short overall, this is a very clear and comprehensive introduction to the power of Cubase's new sampler track. I got much more from this than from Steinberg's brief explanation and it's given me some great overall sound design inspiration as well. I am yet to purchase the upgrade to Cubase 9, but much more likely to now.
